FaceAR 19.0: Bokeh Effect, Color Post-Processing & Better Physics

facer sdk 19 release bokeh

Over the recent weeks, we've advanced our Face Filter SDK with some amazing features that give your users more freedom and creativity with their selfie camera experience. Here they are.

Bokeh effect added

The camera blurs the background in a sophisticated way giving your users a true selfie focused experience. The objects blur in a stylish background and other people faces don't interfere in the photo composition.
