Earlier this year we released Camera Effects Platform (CEP) in closed beta, putting the first augmented reality platform into the hands of talented creators such as brands, publishers, artists and developers. With AR Studio, this platform empowers creators to connect art with data to bring augmented reality into everyday life through the Facebook camera.
Since launching in closed beta at F8, we've seen a strong response from the 2,000+ creators using AR Studio – building fun, animated frames, masks, and interactive AR experiences. We've been working hard to give them even more powerful tools, and open them up to more people.
Starting today, we’re expanding availability of the platform and the AR Studio creative tool to everyone. One of our goals with AR Studio is to put the power of augmented reality in the hands of all creators. Over the last few months, we've expanded the AR Studio toolset for even more creators to build and share AR experiences with the Facebook community.
As part of AR Studio's expanded availability, in the coming days we will also enable world effect technology within AR Studio. Creators will soon be able to develop 3D digital objects for people to place onto surfaces and interact with in their physical space.
AR Studio begins rolling out today for creators worldwide. For more information visit: https://www.facebook.com/fbcameraeffects/home/
