How to prepare a mask for Spark AR

Do you want to know how to prepare an AR effect mask that you can later use on Facebook or Instagram?

All you have to do is read our short guide below.

We start, of course, by downloading the free program for creating AR effects – Spark AR – you can find it here

After starting the program, select the Help / Download Face Assets tab.

Alternatively, you can use this link and download the archive with the necessary files (Face Reference Asset archive)

In this zip file you will find the Textures catalog, which contains face masks of woman and man:

Open them in any graphic program (e.g. Photoshop) and apply any effect with a new layer, e.g. special makeup or glasses accessories.

We used our logo for the purposes of this guide. 😉

Please note: When preparing your AR effect, make sure your eyes and lips match the original mask. Otherwise, you won’t get a good result.

Hide the original face layer (female/male) and save only the texture with your additions in the “png” file format.

You will select the created texture during creating the Material for the AR mask.
