Firstly, I do not like perfect stock images. They always look fake, artificial. Secondly, I love experiments with color and color correction, old black and white films, film photos, effects in the form of noise and grains. And I thought about why it’s not possible to combine everything in one filter and show people how wonderful it is in my own example - not to be a hostage to the perfect form, but to create my own reality.

What it does

Glitch Reality is designed to show the beauty of the imperfection of this world through the prism of effects. The meaning of our creativity is not copying the world, but showing it through your own unique vision.

How I built it

At first I gone to Pinterest and made some search for inspiration, found some pins. Then I made a collage in Photoshop and chosen a color palette for duotone. Next, I moved the project to Spark AR. In it, I created an effect that consists of 4 parts: the RGB effect, changing from the strength of the sound, duotone, glitch, stroke.

Challenges I ran into

First of all it was difficult to choose one idea, as there were three. From a technical point of view, it was difficult to understand how to use the camera texture in 4 forms, adjust 4 rectangles so that the effects do not interfere with each other and work fully, But I did it.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It is always difficult for me to complete projects. This time I had a great desire to participate in my first Facebook hackathon, so I decided not to give up, but to get everything done.

What I learned

I found out how it works audio analyzer, sobel filter and duo tone shader.

What's next for Glitch reality

I hope people will love it and use it. I think next step - I will add more filter and Picker UI, may be gif animation)
