Album cover filter

  • Hey Daniel!

    There are a few different ways to go about this but I would start by creating the "frame" for your filter with an app like photoshop or similar. The way I would do it is have a 1080 x 1920 template open on photoshop and then have everything white/black (or any color you want) except for a small window square in the middle. You can export this file as a PNG and make sure the square in the middle is see through/transparent. The middle transparent is the "album". 

    Import this PNG image onto Lens Studio. Then add a "Background Image" to your project and set the texture to to the image you just imported. You should have everything in black/white/etc. except for the middle square which will contain whatever your camera sees. 


    If you want to add more details to your Album Cover Lens you can add the images linked in this comment. The parental advisory can be added also as a "Background Image", then you can play around with the position as you see fit. I also added the grain overlay that I use, when you add this to your project, play around with the Alpha/Opacity so that it's not too prominent.

    I hope my explanation was clear enough, if not, feel free to add me on Snapchat (maya_shvab) and I'd be more than happy to help you out more!
