Introducing Spark AR Studio Templates

New Augmented Reality (AR) templates make it easier to jumpstart AR projects

As part of today’s release of Spark AR Studio (v76), we’re introducing templates, an exciting new feature that simplifies and streamlines the creation of AR effects. Using templates, creators at any level can get a headstart on a wide range of pre-designed projects, from face masks and color filters to background segmentation and effects with 3D objects.

For new AR creators, sometimes the hardest part is getting started. Templates solve this problem by putting a menu of simple-to-complex AR effects within easy reach by blending and automating AR capabilities to help make getting started easier and faster.

For more advanced creators, templates is a time-saving feature — a way to gather up all the ingredients needed to make effects quickly, so they can focus on building out and customizing their AR experiences.
