Hello,

I am currently working on a Lens Studio game. I want to implement a feature where when the user taps the Start button, the lens automatically starts recording. Is it possible to start recording the Lens when tapping a Button, instead of having to hold down the button? If so, could you provide an example of how to do it via Scripting?

Thank You,
Zach

    Hi Zach,

    it is possible to start recording a lens when tapping a button, instead of having to hold down the button. To do this, you can use the Record component and the Button component, and write a script to start the recording when the button is tapped.

    Here is an example of how you can start recording a lens when tapping a button using scripting:

    1. Add a Record component to your scene: Drag a Record component from the Object Library onto the root object of your scene.
    2. Add a Button component to your scene: Drag a Button component from the Object Library onto the root object of your scene.
    3. Write a script to start the recording when the button is tapped: In the script, use the "onButtonDown" event of the Button component to start the recording when the button is tapped. Here is an example of how you could do this:
    // Import the Record component
    const Record = require('Record');
    
    // Get a reference to the Record component
    const record = script.getSceneObject().getComponent(Record);
    
    // Handle the onButtonDown event of the Button component
    script.button.onButtonDown = function() {
      // Start the recording
      record.startRecording();
    }
