Snapchat presenta le nuove Emoji 3D BitMoji

How to Get More Snapchat Bitmoji Animations?

Not too long ago, Snapchat introduced a new animated emoji to personalize your snaps even more than you already can. It takes the original 2D Bitmoji and makes it 3D animated, allowing you to add yourself to your shots. If that’s what you like to do, here’s how to use the Snapchat Bitmoji Animation.

The 2D Bitmoji was ok but didn’t set the imagination on fire. We hope this new animated 3D Bitmoji achieves more. Snapchat acquired Bitstrips, the company that originally created Bitnoji, in 2016. After releasing the 2D avatar, we all thought it would be a good idea to spend a lot of money on a simple cartoon. The guys at Bitstrips don’t seem to be sitting idle, and the Bitmoji’s 3D animation is the result of their efforts.

This brings us to the world of AR, augmented reality. A 3D Bitmoji animation is projected onto the Snapchat screen and superimposed over whatever image the camera is pointing at. Since the rear-facing camera is pointing away from you, this will be what you’re aiming for at the time. The animation is then added as a layer, providing an AR experience unlike any other.

How to Create a 3D Animated Bitmoji

One of the best things about these new Bitmojis is how easy they are to create. In order to use the 3D animation of Bitmoji, you need to create a 2D version for Snapchat.

  1. Open Snapchat and make sure it’s up to date.
  2. Select the Ghost icon and select “Create Bitmoji” in the top left corner of the screen.
  3. Click the Create Bitmoji button on the next screen.
  4. Download the Bitmoji app if you don’t already have it.
  5. Launch the Bitmoji app and select Create with Snapchat.
  6. Create your own avatar.
  7. Select Agree Connect when you’re done.
  8. Your Bitmoji should now appear on Snapchat.

When you’re done, your Bitmoji is your new avatar that you can use in a snap in 2D mode.

To create a 3D version:

  1. Open the Snapchat app if you have closed it.
  2. Access the rear camera and touch the screen.
  3. Choose the lens of the world. Your 3D Bitmoji should appear on the screen.

World lenses change how your avatar appears on screen. There is a skateboard, a disco ball, a backpack, a water cooler and one with glasses. The lenses of the World change at regular intervals. I have also seen Bitmoji playing guitar and doing yoga on a mat. I’m not sure exactly how often they change, but they definitely change regularly.

There are also the inevitable sponsored World Lenses that play licensed tunes along with the animation. I’m sure many more sponsored or monetized options are coming soon. They always do.

Using Bitmoji 3D Animation

Until you do something with your 3D Bitmoji animation, it’s just a fantastic 2D image stuck on the screen. Only when you do something with it does it come to life. To spice up your Bitmoji, slide your finger across the screen to make it move. You can also pinch to make your avatar bigger or smaller. Finally, cross your fingers and drag across the screen and your Bitmoji will start to spin.

But that is not all.

While holding the world lens of your choice, walk around pointing the camera at different things. When the camera is moving, the Bitmoji looks like it is also moving. Although it is not. Bitmoji stays in place, but the background moves, tricking the eye into thinking it’s the animation and not the background. It’s really smart.

Edit Your Bitmoji

If you feel like changing, you can edit your Bitmoji just like you always did.

  1. Access Bitmoji from within Snapchat.
  2. Select Settings from the gear icon in the top right corner. Choose Bimoji.
  3. Select Edit Bitmoji.
  4. Make changes in the Bitmoji app and save them.

I usually don’t go for tricks like this, but I think the Snapchat Bitmoji animation is really smart. It takes a simple animation and uses it in a very clever way to deliver a lot more than it looks. Since it’s free and most of us have used 2D bitmoji anyway, it looks like a worthwhile upgrade.
