  • Hey Itszav11,

    I made a project file that will show you how to effect with Lens Studio.

    First of all you need to create a Face Mesh. In the Objects panel, select Add New and then find the Face Mesh.

    This will add a Face Mesh to your project and now you need to create a material and assign it to the Face Mesh.

    To add a material, in the Resources panel search for Simple PBR. This material gives you access to to physical based rendering which means it looks more real.

    Now in select the simplePBR and then start customizing it.

    In the Base Texture we put our main pattern there which you can replace it with your pattern.

    Then the tricky part is the Opacity texture has to be a shape that can reveal a part of the pattern and it also has to be loop-able since we want our animation to be loopable.

    Then the last thing you need to set the Texture UV inside the opacity texture to be on the Transformed UV2 so you can animate it.

    You can learn more about animating UV here:

    Now all you need to do is checked the Transform UV 2 inside the PBR and also check the Animation.

    You can change the speed of the scroll by changing the Offset X value:

    You can download the example project file here:
