I want a face inset to be time delayed

  • Hey Alex Ezorsky

    So i found a template about how to freeze the camera input. Click here for the template.

    Just remove the other three cameras of this template and enlarge your camera output, you would like to use. You can  change the Behaviour sricpt from "Tap/touch started" to "lens initialised, and change the delay to about the 3 second or so. ( if you want) .

    If there are any questions left, feel free to ask :D

  • Hey Alex Ezorsky, this is possible using segmentation and some simple behavior scripts! I've just made you an example project demonstrating how to do this effect. You can download it and open it up by clicking here.

    The way that this template works, is the user can tap anywhere on the screen, and just their body will freeze in the place the user was when they tapped and they can still freely move on top of the frozen picture of them.  

    To make this, I added another camera with a separate render target called the "Photo Target," in a different layer to be the photo camera, that freezes when you tap. Then, in the (+) icon, I added a screen image and selected the newly made "Photo Target" as the texture. This shows the live feed of that camera. Then, in the resources panel, I added a "Segmentation Texture" and selected the "Portrait Background" segmentation. I then masked the orthographic camera out with this texture by clicking the camera and selecting the "Segmentation Texture" in the mask texture section. What masking the orthographic camera with that the "Segmentation Texture" does, is it only shows that screen image, and everything else under that camera, behind the user, instead of on top of everything. To add the tap effect, where the user can tap to freeze the camera, I made a behavior script that toggles the camera when the user taps and stops it from collecting a live feed. Something I added only to look cool is I added a "Tween Manager" to the objects panel, deleted the examples, and dragged the "Tween Alpha" script into the objects panel. I then selected the screen image as the scene object and selected tapped from the initialized option. All that does is add a cool "fade in" effect for the frozen camera.

    That's it! I can't wait to see what you do with this template. Also, please feel free to DM me on Snap @noahlupowitz if you have any more questions.
