In this tutorial series we'll be going over how to create a beauty/aesthetic filter for Snapchat from start to finish. If you've never created a Snapchat filter before, we'll be helping you every step of the way and have you creating your own lenses in no time!
First things first, you need to make sure your computer is powerful enough to run Lens Studio. Chances are your current computer will be just fine, but I recommend looking at the Lens Studio system requirements for an up-to-date list of what you need. As of this writing, Lens Studio is only available for Mac or PC - it cannot run on Chromebooks, Android, iOS, or Linux. Just about any Mac or PC manufactured within the last few years will run Lens Studio, but the better your computer, the better Lens Studio will run. If you are buying a new computer and intend on running Lens Studio, please thoroughly check the specs of the computer. It is entirely possible to buy a new computer that was actually manufactured several years ago; even though the computer is "new" it might not be able to run Lens Studio.
Once you've finished installing Lens Studio, launch it, create a new project, and let's get started!
