Because Custom Location AR is anchored to a specific location, you will need to scan the location. This step is essential, and the reliability of your AR experience depends on a well-captured mesh. Ensure you fully understand the process, and practice scanning locations around your home or work area before heading to the actual location for your Lens. To put it simply — plan out the AR experience as best as possible before scanning. Consider which parts of the location the Snapchatter will interact with and, therefore, which parts of the location you should scan. Lastly, as you scan your location, note that Snapchat requires all Custom Location Lenses to include an Image Marker set to an image of the location itself for Lens review purposes.
This module will cover the basics of scanning, capturing larger meshes, optimization tips for optimal mesh capture, and testing your Lens.
