Interaction Patches Overview

Use interaction patches to detect gestures from the person using your effect, and make something happen as a result.

To help to people use interactive effects easily, include clear and intuitive instructions and keep things simple by focusing on one or two main interactions.

The following types of Interaction patches are available:

  • Movements like blinking and nodding

  • Facial Gestures like smiling and making a surprised face

  • Screen interactions like tapping and pinching the screen
