New tools and technologies are transforming the way we create. Using Augmented Reality, we can view our physical reality differently as social media platforms are including AR features in their products. Wearables and mobile devices add a new visual layer to the world we see around us.
Join AR expert, Lianne Tokey, as she shares her journey as an independent freelance illustrator to becoming a Program Manager for Facebook’s AR ecosystem. During her presentation, she will discuss her process and transition from 2D/3D ideation to creating immersive experiences. She will also walk you through Spark AR Studio, the tool used to build effects for Instagram and Facebook, and show you how easy it is to use!
In this three-hour free interactive workshop, Lianne will also cover her workflow, from best practices when creating art elements, to layout considerations when designing for immersive space. She will show you how to add looping animations that play out sequentially by using the animation patches in the patch editor. Lianne will also share her go-to list of easy-to-add visual elements in Spark that can be applied to any effect to add that extra detail to take your Spark AR effects to the next level!
Plus, there will be a panel discussion about ideation for immersive experiences, and panelists will dig into the capabilities available in Spark AR, as well as limitations. You don't want to miss this!
