Face in Video 2D animation file size

  • Hey Christian,

    That's a really fun lens good job on that.

    But to fix the problem is really simple.

    First you dont need to compress before importing into Lens Studio. After exporting your PNG sequence from After Effects, import your sequence as a 2D Animation From Files. 

    Then, after the file created, right click on it and select show in finder

    Then it will show where is the file located. Now you will see there is a folder with two file. Go ahead and try to compress the atlas_X.png now. then replace the file with the compressed one.

    I did the same thing with your project file and now your project is only 1.66 MB!

    If you couldn't compress your PNG because the file size is bigger than 5MB using TinyPNG you can use alternative like:

    or many more.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hi Amir, 

    Wow that worked! I was wondering where those extra MB were hiding. Thank you so much!!

    The other issue I'm having in Face in Video is no tapping to cycle through sunglasses with a trigger. Is this a feature that Face in Video can do?
