Snapchat Lens Creator Spotlight: JP Pirie

Until recently, I’d never really explored Snap’s impressive catalogue of Lenses. It’s truly an endless-seeming scroll of incredible, otherworldly, and hilarious face warpers, background replacers, and ground shifters, to name just a few.

You can discover some of the best, brightest, and most prolific Lens Creators highlighted on Lens Studio’s Official Creator page.

One Creator that’s recently captured my attention, especially in light of the Halloween season, is JP Pirie, a long-time UX designer and creative who’s made hundreds of immersive Lenses.

And…they’re just the kind of Halloween creepy that gets me into the season.

Truly, truly horrifying

I was very curious to know how a prolific Snap Creator like JP (with 300,000+ subscribers and more than 2 billion Lens views) feels about the recent addition of SnapML to Lens Studio, which we’ve been covering in depth in recent months.

Editor’s Note: For an in-depth look at SnapML, Lens Studio’s new framework for leveraging custom machine learning models inside Snapchat Lenses, download our free comprehensive guide.

JP was kind enough to take a bit of time to answer a few questions about his experience building Snapchat Lenses, and a bit of his perspective on the potential—and challenges—of working with SnapML and its new capabilities inside Lens Studio.

Building a Custom Face Mask Snapchat Lens with Fritz AI and Lens Studio

Introduction

In my last post, I covered some of the difficulties of working with custom neural networks in Lens Studio. This time, I’ll show you what it looks like, with a step-by-step guide for building and implementing your own custom neural network in a Snap Lens.

By the end of this post, you’ll know how to:

  1. Train your own custom segmentation model using Fritz AI Studio. I used face masks for my example, but you can pick whatever target object(s) you want.
  2. Incorporate your model into a Lens Studio project via an ML Component.
  3. Visualize real-time predictions from the model.
  4. Make a color overlay and an interactive color slider to change the appearance of the segmented object.

Part 1: Building a model with Fritz AI Studio

For a more in-depth look at working with Fritz AI Studio, you can check out our Quickstart Guide; or, for an applied use case, read through our end-to-end cat detector tutorial.

Image segmentation models (like other computer vision models) require a lot of labeled data for training. We could always collect and manually annotate data, but that can be incredibly time consuming, since we’d need to do this for thousands of images.

Fortunately, we can get started with a much smaller number of images, thanks to the synthetic data generation tool in Fritz AI Studio. This tool allows users to:

  • Easily upload and manually label a set of seed images.
  • Automatically apply image augmentation techniques that are specifically targeted for mobile devices.
  • From those seed images, programmatically generate ready-to-train datasets of thousands of images with accurately-labeled keypoints, bounding boxes, class labels, or segmentation masks — in a matter of minutes.

Enticing features and other attractive attributes of Snapchat clone app

Snapchat app that allows users to share photos and videos. Though it sounds similar to other social media platforms’ workings, it has several attractive features that set it apart from Facebook and Instagram. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that users can set a time limit for recipients to view each snap. After the time limit, the snap automatically gets deleted. Snapchat app clone ensures both security and user privacy through this attractive feature.

Some of the attractive features of Snapchat clone app script:

Snaps: Users enjoy self-destructible photos and videos. A video snap can be a maximum of 10 seconds and deleted once all the recipients have viewed it.

Messaging: Just like the snaps, the messages are also self-destructive. Once read, the messages will be deleted. Users can hold the finger onto the message to protect it from disappearing. The message will exist as long as users hold it.

Stickers: Snapchat clone app offers a wide range of stickers to make the entire user experience even better. Users can use these stickers while messaging, stories, etc.

Lenses: These are also known as AR filters. It allows users to change eye color, hair colors, add virtual glasses, etc. These lenses can be applied in photos that are already taken and used while taking a picture.

Geofilters: As the name suggests, these filters can only be used in the Snapchat app clone for specific locations. For example, McDonald’s offers an exclusive set of features that can be used while enjoying food in fast-food outlets.

Video/audio calls: It allows users to make video calls and simultaneously send snaps.

Snapchat clone app development requires qualified developers to build an app to meet the market standards. We, at Appdupe, offer Snapchat clone scripts with intuitive design and exclusive features. Get in touch with us.

How to Monetization App Like Snapchat?

  • Branded GeoFilters: In this, brands are permitted to build Snapchat filters of their own. Depending on the geolocation, users can locate fun augmented reality filters that stay free for 30 days—the app prices businesses $5 for coverage of 20,000 square feet. It is noted that sponsored national geofilters are expected to be around one-fifth of the value of Sponsored Lenses.

  • Advertising: Snapchat’s primary revenue comes from advertising Snap Ads. Mainly, they show 6-10 second video ads designed particularly for upward smartphone screens. These ads are also very interactive, enabling users to swipe up and enter video, blog, or app download. Snap Ads start around $3,000 per month in ad spend.

  • Discover Section: This is the main option that you should choose if you want to build an app similar to Snapchat. This discovery option is displayed in the story so nobody can miss it. Snapchat’s algorithm shows systematized content according to the user’s situation and choices.

  • Sponsored Lenses: This monetization approach is comparable to Geofilters. Businesses spread by their individual customized lenses that emerge at appropriate places. In this way, they can advance their brands or any events.
    This ad type is famous among big corporations. Sponsored Lenses fluctuate according to day like:

  • If the ad is running Sunday-Thursday, the cost is around $450,000 per day.

  • If it is run on Friday and Saturday, the cost is $500,000 per day.

  • For celebrations and special occasions such as the Super Bowl, the price will be $700,000.
