Snapchat, the popular Snap app, has released the new "Cartoon 3D Face" filter, which allows users to change their appearance to transform into Disney and Pixar characters.
Just a few days ago, Voilà AI Artist, an app with the same purpose, went viral on Android and iPhone.
Snapchat is a filter, to be applied in real time to images and videos shot with the mobile phone.
The final result is a content posted on the social platform or saved on the smartphone and to be published elsewhere.
Snap is no stranger to such filters.
To date, there are three cartoonish goals for subscribers to choose from.
The first is Cartoon Face, released in August 2020. Then Cartoon, a more advanced lens that transforms the entire face into a Disney-style character. The third, Cartoon 3D Style, released in the last few hours, makes people look closer to Pixar works, alternating the shape between two genres. To experience the latest, download the latest version of Snapchat, go to the camera screen, click on the smiley face icon, then "Explore" and search for "Cartoon 3D Style". Model Alexis Ren posted on TikTok a video of her using the lens while synthesizing Tangled from the movie Rapunzel. Many artists are giving life to modern reinterpretations of classics, staging Frozen and Toy Story shows. The time for such content is rosy.
Voilà AI Artist has jumped from 400 total downloads in March 2021 to over 10 million in the first two weeks of June.
