banuba face ar sdk release notes


Face filter SDK: Voice changer (iOS)

Make you face filters more immersive and fun by allowing users to change their voice. You can adjust a voice filter to sound like a child, alto, robot or any other voice you like.

Face filter SDK: Haptic feedback

Face filters and effects can now react to users’ touches — tremble or vibrate — making your app experience more engaging.

Beautification SDK: Acne removal

Our technology detects skin defects and eliminates them in real time allowing users to enjoy their clean skin look.

Beautification SDK: Lips segmentation improved

We achieved much more precise lips segmentation that allows applying lipstick with a perfect fit for any type of users’ lips. Lipstick virtual makeup looks super natural as if its real.

Face filter SDK: Watermarks on video (iOS)

You can add your logo or custom image to face filters and get your brand message more visible.

Face filter SDK: Video Recording Speed Improved (iOS)

We significantly improved the speed of video recording which now matches the real-time on-screen experience.

Beautification SDK: Hair segmentation improved (Android)

We added a preview of neural network support of hair segmentation. Real-time hair recoloring is available now as a separate build for high-end devices.

Face filter SDK: Photo processing improved

We added a single image processing method with custom input and output formats. It allows achieving a higher quality of photos with AR face filters.

Face filter SDK: Touch events (iOS)

You can create gamified face filters that react to use taps, e.g. users can catch AR objects by tapping or swiping on the screen.

Beautification SDK: Skin and eye segmentation (iOS)

We added experiment skin and eye segmentation on iOS that allows overlaying eye-shadows and changing skin tone more accurately compared to full-face makeup filters.

Face filter SDK: Sound volume control

Users can adjust volume in face filters or mute them and get their face filter experience unobtrusive and comfortable.

Face filter SDK: Render optimized

We achieved a higher quality of AR effects from 25 to 30 FPS on all devices and platforms. AR effects perform smoother.

Above all, we've updated face detection and tracking algorithms, resolved a dozen small issues with existing components and features like audio, color corrections, AR effects display and others. Optimized and improved AR SDK performance making it even more lightweight and speedy.

More updates are on the way!

Banuba Face AR SDK includes several components, i.e. Face filters, Beautification, Avatar and Face analytics. You can use each component separately to build a standalone augmented reality app or integrate it into your existing app. See how our Face AR SDK can help you to empower your app with some amazing features that your users will love.
