Why Banuba Face Filters SDK
Banuba Filter Editor allows to view, edit and compile filters from various assets for Banuba Face AR SDK. It allows designers to construct and test filters in real time before uploading them to live apps saving time to market and speeding up the effects' iteration.
Broadest device coverage
Unlike ARKit or ARCore, we don’t limit your user outreach. Banuba Face Filters SDK device support starts with iPhone 5S, Android 5.0 with Camera 2 API and Open GL ES 3.0 which covers 97% of all iOS devices and 80% of all Android ones.
Industry's best face tracking
You can create the most complex high-quality face filters like in Snapchat, and they will look realistic and vivid both in colors, texture, shape, and behavior due to our advanced 3D rendering engine.
Face Filter SDK is tuned specifically for mobile devices meaning we've optimized it for minimal power consumption, size and battery drain. It functions well on iPhone-Xs and $100-Androids, at low lighting, and with up to 70% occlusion.
In case you want to quickly add AR content to your app or have no design resources, you can buy ready-made effects from our Filter Library - over 1000+ AR filters all tried and tested on real users.
Inspiration may strike when you least expect it (sometimes without a wifi connection anywhere close). Our Face Filter SDK is accessible, even offline with the processing made on the device.
