Snap’s latest desktop app Lens Studio lets anyone from students to full-time developers create their own lenses for Snapchat and its users.
The app lets users design any kind of augmented reality lenses, including static and animated objects, ones with interactive taps, and ones that show a “window into another world”.
No ad to show here.
Users can then share their completed designs with friends using a Snapcode that will unlock the lens for 24 hours.
The app includes guides, templates, and 3D modelling software. Lens Studio also offers challenges — like the current one accepting submissions for New Year’s-themed lenses — in which creators can win prizes like an iPad Pro.
Lens Studio is completely free and available for Windows 10 and MacOS 10.10+.
