Course Overview

Ever wondered how some people get those amazing augmented reality filters on video calls? Or ever wanted to be a monster on Halloween or an elf at Christmas? Here’s your chance to discover how.

Using SnapChat’s lens studio, this cutting edge Fire Tech Experience will take you through making a series of fun and exciting augmented reality filters that will transform your appearance onscreen and can be used with Zoom, Google Meets, Teams and SnapChat. 

We’ll show you how to warp a face using the transform features. We’ll also show you how to trigger actions on certain facial expressions, hand gestures, segmentation, markers and object detection.
