Where Snap Camera stores a list of favorites?

  • Hey!

    I'm not 100% sure why your data would be lost, but however, if you enjoy a lens and plan on reusing it many times you can save it to favorites. This way it bookmarks the lens. Then when you want to access the lens again just look for it in the categories labeled "favorites"

  • As far as I know, you cannot back up the masks, you can only save them as a project and continue later. Regarding the loss of your data, do you save your projects after you have finished or do not you directly upload them to the internet and save them. If you save, I think your problem will be fixed, I'm not sure

    Here is the Snap Camera, on the left is a list of saved masks for quick access. This list was reset to zero for me 2 times. And I need to find out a way to backup this list.

  • There is a 'settings.json' in the following Folder:

    C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Local\Snap\Snap Camera

    Either you backup the whole File, or if you want to save the more specific 'favorites' then you need to open this file with something like Notepad++ and backup the following lines:

    "favorites": [
