Exporting Effects

When you export an effect from Spark AR Studio, an .arexport file will be saved to your computer. This file contains everything your effect needs to work in the camera.

It's important to check the file sizes when you're exporting an effect. Effects that are too big won't be approved.

Before you can submit your effect for publishing, you'll also need to create an effect icon and make a screencast of your effect being used.

Checking the File Sizes

The .arexport bundle that's exported on to your computer must be 40MB or smaller.

File size limits for each bundle depend on whether you're publishing to Facebook or Instagram.

Testing and Debugging

Make sure you've tested and debugged the effect before exporting it.

Exporting Effects

When you're happy with your effect and you've checked the file sizes, click Export in the Toolbar and follow the instructions. You'll see a warning if it's still too big.

You can also batch export multiple projects using the commmand line tool.
