How to make games?

  • It really depends on the games, it's just a lot of coding. If you have unity experience or WebGL experience it transfers decently. The scripting language used in lens studio is Javascript, mostly based on ES5 Javascript.

  • Can I import a javascript animation into Lens Studio? If so, how?

  • If you are talking about DOM animations in JS like

    in a loop: = - 10 + "px"

    You can, it depends on what you're animating in LS. The math would be the same but the calls and values would be different.

    For a Screen Image you would do something like:

    in a loop with a  screen transform component imported in the script as screenTransform:

    var current = script.screenTransform.anchors.getCenter()

    script.screenTransform.anchors.setCenter(new vec2(current.x, current.y - 10))

    You can also check out the built in Tween helper script and template for it to easily make some animations without the coding:
