  • Publication number: 20190238610
    Abstract: A video effects application executes on a client device having an image capture device and receives video data captured by the image capture device. The video effects application extracts information from the captured video data and stores the extracted information as metadata associated with the captured video data. For example, the video effects application identifies objects in the captured video data or identifies optical flow of the captured video data and stores the identified objects or identified optical flow as metadata associated with the captured video data. The video effects application stores information describing modifications to the captured video data in association with the captured video data. When the captured video data is presented, the captured video data, associated metadata, and information describing the modifications is communicated to a renderer, which uses the metadata to perform the identified modifications to the captured video data when presenting the captured video data.

  • Publication number: 20190138834
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes generating, by a device, first tracking data using a first tracking algorithm, based on first video frames associated with a scene. An augmented-reality (AR) effect may be displayed based on the first tracking data. The device may generate a first confidence score associated with the first tracking data and determine that the first confidence score is above a threshold. The device may generate, based on second video frames subsequent to the first video frames, second tracking data using the first tracking algorithm. The device may determine that an associated second confidence score is below a threshold. In response, the device may generate, based on third video frames subsequent to the second video frames, third tracking data using a second tracking algorithm different from the first. The device may then display the AR effect based on the third tracking data.

  • Publication number: 20190104101
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to increasing engagement in conversations between users, and more particularly to providing an effect to a second user in response to use of an effect by a first user. In certain embodiments, two or more users may be having a conversation via a communication platform of an SNS. The conversation may be streaming (e.g., a video or audio call) or non-streaming (e.g., a message exchange). During the conversation, a first user may send a communication that includes content with a first effect applied thereto. Based on the communication, a second effect corresponding to the first effect may be identified for use by the second user in response to the communication. The second effect may then be provided to the second user so that the second user may use the second effect in response to the communication.

  • Publication number: 20190026283
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing system captures, using a camera, a number of frames of a live scene. The system generates preview frames for an augmented scene by applying one or more augmented reality effects to the frames of the live scene. Each preview frame is based on a low-resolution image of the live scene. The low-resolution image has a lower resolution than a maximum resolution of the camera. The system stores at least one preview frame with the augmented reality effects into a storage of the computing device. The system displays a live preview of the augmented scene using the preview frames. The system receives a request from a user to capture an image of the augmented scene while the live preview is being displayed. The system retrieves, the at least one preview frame stored in the storage and outputs the retrieved at least one preview frame.

  • Publication number: 20180357480
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes a system accessing an image, which may comprise covered and uncovered portions, and an overlay image comprising opaque pixels. The covered portion may be configured to be covered by the opaque pixels of the overlay image. The system may generate a data structure comprising data elements associated with pixels of the image. Each of the data elements associated with a covered pixel in the covered portion of the image may be configured to identify an uncovered pixel in the uncovered portion of the image that is closest to the covered pixel. Each covered pixel in the covered portion of the image may be modified by accessing the data element associated with the covered pixel, determining a distance between the covered pixel and an associated closest uncovered pixel using the accessed data element, and modifying a color of the covered pixel based on the distance.

  • Patent number: 10127290
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method for distributing an augmented reality (AR) effect may include ranking, by a computing system, a plurality of client devices based on a device capability, where a higher ranking may represent relatively better device capability. The system may identify a first subset of client devices having a first particular ranking. An AR effect may be transmitted to the first subset of client devices. The system may determine a performance score for the AR effect among the first subset of client devices. The performance score may be based on one or more performance parameters associated with the AR effect running on the first subset of client devices. The system may transmit the AR effect to a second subset of client devices when the performance score of the AR effect among the first subset of client devices satisfies a predefined threshold.

  • Patent number: 10028022
    Abstract: A media effects engine on a computer device applies one or more effects to an input media stream. A performance monitor monitors a performance metric associated with playing the input media stream and reduces a quality parameter associated with the effect upon detecting a drop in the performance metric below a target metric. The quality parameter manages a tradeoff between a quality of effect and an amount of hardware resources consumed to produce the effect. Thus, the effect can be adjusted to meet the capabilities of the computer device.
