Hello community!
I have several questions

1) Is it possible to use Snapchat lenses in our app with Camera Kit or do we need to create our own?
2) Is it possible to record a video using SDK lenses?
3) What is the format of interaction with native app?

Thanks

    1) Is it possible to use Snapchat lenses in our app with Camera Kit or do we need to create our own?

    Within the Creator Marketplace, you can purchase pre-built, categorized groups of Lenses built by top Snap Lens Network (SLN) creators to kickstart your Camera Kit integration and accelerate time to market with augmented reality. Lens Packs can help you learn what types of experiences resonate best with your customers and provide options for refreshed Lens content.
    To browse and purchase Lens Packs:

    1. Log into Business Manager with your Snapchat username and password.
    2. Click on the drop down on the top left side of Business Manager and select 'Creator Marketplace' under the 'Business' category
    3. Select the 'Lens Pack' drop down and filter by the category of pack that you would like to feature in your application or select 'All' to view all Creators who feature Lens Packs on their profile.
    4. Click directly on a specific Creator's profile and toggle to the 'Lens Packs' tab to view available groups of Lenses. Click on a specific pack to view the individual Lenses and their respective Snapcodes. You can scan the Snapcode via the Snapchat camera to play with the Lenses prior to purchasing.
    5. After identifying your desired Lens Packs, click on the 'Contact Email' option to connect with the creator directly to purchase and receive the Lens Pack files. The Lens creator will be able to provide .zip files for the Lenses to then be submitted to your application through Lens Studio.

    2) Is it possible to record a video using SDK lenses?

    Video recording is supported in SDK. You can try our sample app to see the demo!
