Creating Your Own Snapchat Lens with Lens Studio

Creating Your Own Snapchat Lens


Travis Chen

Snap Inc

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

In this workshop, hear how an artist and Snapchat influencer is using the Lenses she creates in Lens Studio by Snap Inc. to engage her audience in totally new ways. You'll also learn more about Snap's approach to building this AR platform from the Lens Studio's Lead Interactive Engineer before being guided through the tool. By the time you leave, you'll have created your very own Lens that Snapchatters anywhere will be able to unlock via a unique Snapcode.

In December 2017, we at Snap Inc. expanded our augmented reality Lenses product with the release of Lens Studio, a set of desktop creative tools that make it easy for anyone, from new 2D illustrators to sophisticated developers who want to script their own experiences, to create their own AR experiences and distribute them using Snapchat. With over 3.5 billion Snaps created every day, we see a unique opportunity to engage Snapchatters with augmented reality experiences -- or "Lenses" -- overlaid on the Snap Camera and are excited to see what attendees of this workshop create!
