AI Video Editor SDK vs Face AR SDK

AI Video Editor SDK handles video editing elements like video capture, trimming, and making slideshows.

In turn, Face AR SDK focuses on augmented reality elements like masks and filters. 

You can combine both with Banuba.

Our SDK products were designed to be fully compatible with each other.

But you can get each one separately as well.

For example, a pure React Native video editor might not require face filters.

In this case, here are the step-by-step guides on how to disable Face AR SDK for each platform:

Why React Native

For the last few years, this technology has remained the most popular framework for developing cross-platform mobile applications.

Source: Statista

It uses the popular JavaScript and boasts up to 95% code reuse between Android, iOS, and Web. This means if you build a video editor with React Native, your work would become more efficient, with the total development time decreasing by up to 30% for a multiplatform app.

What’s more, React Native works almost as fast as native technologies and can integrate native code. This means React Native video processing software can be a viable alternative to one built with Swift, Java, or Kotlin.

Using this framework together with Banuba Video Editor SDK will save many weeks of work and allow you to go to market much faster. For more details, see our article: “How to develop a mobile video editor app”.
