Camera Texture: TikTok Effect House Powerful Basics

Learn how to use the Camera Texture in TikTok Effect House.

My first time in TikTok Effect House proved to be riveting! I’ve worked in Meta Spark Studio for a couple years and recently decided to dive into TikTok Effect House—now that it is out of beta! You will be happy to find comparable features to Meta Spark Studio; however the buttons, names and locations have been changed to protect their identity.

Let’s start by working with the Camera. We will create a simple un-mirror effect that reverses the mirror effect while using the selfie Camera (the camera facing you). The benefit of this is that written words and direction-dependent content will not be backwards!

Create a Screen Image

  1. Click Add Object from the panel on the left side.
  2. Select Screen Image from the 2D category.

Now, there is a Screen Image with the Camera Input Texture covering our screen!

Edit the Camera Input Texture Properties

Feel free to edit and adjust the Screen Image properties. For example, we can select Flip X to un-mirror our camera. This works by flipping the Screen Image’s X axis. Now we can write messages while in selfie mode!
