  • Can I request a tutorial please?

    It would actually be kind of an extension of one of your existing tutorials. For the multiple camera effects lens, it would be amazing if you could do a walk through of how to make it so that when you tap one of the four small images, it fills the screen, and then when you tap again it goes back to being split into 4.

    I messed around with the Behavior script and tweening for a while to try to get that working right but in the end just made myself frustrated!

  • Hi Ben, These are amazing.

    You mentioned  in your video (Behavior Script and Custom Animations using Tweens) which was great and I see you've said in comments that resetting has been implemented for Tweens in SC.

    I've been looking for a way to reset a script and can't see how to do that.

    I'm trying to stop a script from running that has been triggered by touch when the camera is flipped from back to front camera. Basically the script is triggered and instantiates an object which will appear after a certain amount of time. I need the script to go back to its original state - essentially resetting it if the ser flips the camera halfway through. I've tried enable/disable script but seems to still run. Also using 'SpectaclesTimeLoopHelperModified' script which resets tweens but doesn't seem to reset scripts. Any thoughts would be gratefully received!

  • Hey Rich!

    You could try adding some logic around the inside of the tap event, which would basically say if the back camera is active then run the code inside, otherwise if it's on the front camera, don't trigger it. This can be done by adding the CameraFrontEvent and CameraBackEvent, then set some type of variable like "backCam" to true or false inside these events. then, put an if statement around the code inside the tap event that only runs if backCam is true!


    Hope that helps

  • Hi Ben, thanks for this. I understand the logic but I’m not sure how to set that up in code. I have my head around the behaviours and tweens etc, but I’m not a coder. Any chance you could outline the script for me. One thing on this it seems that it says it won’t trigger if on front camera. That’s fine, but if you are on back camera and have triggered it, then go to front camera, will it stop the script from running in the background?

  • Hi Ben,

    The tutorials are great by the way thank you very much. I was just letting you know I am struggling at the pixelate effect tutorial as in the resources panel I don't seem to have the technique called 'Camera Output'. This issue meant even if the resolutions were changed, it would still not have an effect on the face.


    I have a feeling that maybe the software has been updated regularly so I wanted to know how I can overcome this issue.

  • Hi Ben.

    Thanks for your work!

    I'm trying to follow the video tutorial that you made with sellia "Dynamic vine growth effect".

    I follow each step of your tutorial but something doesn't work. I would like to know if you can help me to find my mistake or if it's a consequence of the new LS?

    By advance thanks and once again thanks for you work

  • Hey Takinours,


    Try using this tutorial from the Lens Studio team, they use a different method that should still work with the new update! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6ydL9WB0Q0

  • Hey Ben


    Looks like you have some great tutorials. I was wondering if you could perhaps point me in the right direction. I'm a total beginner that's looking to experiment with creating some face lenses. Do you have a tutorial that describes how to use an image of an existing face - like a celebrity to create my own lens? 


    I'd love to create something of a similar quality to this: https://www.snapchat.com/unlock/?type=SNAPCODE&uuid=3D4A499924824910B8F5866805735BFC&metadata=01

    Any help would be greatly appreciated:)
