PROJECT: AR Facemasks for Lvestreamers
POSITION: 3D Designer
As part of the Streamlabs Facemask team, I worked on an augmented-reality feature for live streaming channels where 3D masks could be applied to the streamer’s face – midstream with real time face-tracking. This tool enabled streamers to entertain and engage with their viewers, as well as way to increase streamer revenue. In addition to being compatible with the company’s proprietary OBS software, the system was also picked up by Twitch and could be enabled via Twitch extension.
