Video Recorder


Yea. I’m thinking of making a better plug in.
One with a time limit on the recording. Or a tap the screen to stop.



Yes that’s Perfect!!! Thank You so Much!


Ha, no worries @stevesanerd,

I think it’s because this function isn’t doc yet. Almost passed by me too : P

About the button option @gapizabala, I never find a way to do it. I think this function works as the gif function that you can’t hide the HUD because the Zappar’s printing the screen know.

If you guys discover, let me know because I’m interessed in this since the att too!

att, Higão.


Hi @higor, some have done it, but i don’t how that person did it. i just fount this zap here in forum



Hey guys,

Video recording is something that is in Studio but is undocumented. It hasn’t been documented as we are still playing around with the correct implementation.

As you guys have sneakily found that it exists, I have attached an example ZPP which should help you understand the sort of things that can be done with it.

We will be looking at improving and making this into an easy to use subsymbol, but for the time being,
you can download it here: Photo Video Button.zpp (2.3 MB)

You may want to include some error handling edits and other features, but it’s a great place to start! We would love to see the experiences you add this into, even if it is just practice and messing around.

Thanks George!!
I wish I would have seen this back when I was working on the Sipsmith. I so wanted to add a video to my face paint. But did not because apple devices couldn’t save it.

It’s actually in the release notes George :smile:


It’s some great detective work @marcus . :wink:


Hi @George
This feature (video capturing) is an important feature for the face tracking,I wish we have that as soon as possible.


That was what I was thinking as well.
But now we have it. Time to play.



Thank you very Much!!! :slight_smile:


I’ve been exploring again this one, is there a way that the video record can also record audio? :slight_smile:
Thank you so much @George :blush:


YES!! it can!!
In @George zpp file go to the videoCaptureCode and change line 29 to true and it will record audio.



thank you so much bro @stevesanerd always a big help!


I was playing with it some more. He set it up as a subsymbol so all you have to do is add it to your project then drag it into the hierarchy. It will then have a reference to use the mic or not.



Hi George,
I tried to use this feature with the web ar, but it seems that doesn’t work. Is it possible somehow?
Many thanks!!


Hi Marco,

The video recording set up is not currently working in WebAR. There aren’t suitable web APIs for it or at least no suitable API that is implemented on Safari IIRC. Video recording is not officially documented as we are looking to tweak the implementation to improve stability.

We have a number of exciting new features on our WebAR roadmap which our team is currently working on (world tracking, improved face tracking). As always, we will keep you updated with these and let you know when video recording is fully functional in our WebAR technology on the forum.



Many thanks George for the quick reply!


Wow! Thank you so much… I am new in Zapworks Studio and this contribution will be help me a lot.


I tried the file and publish it…but the button record can only snap picture, video record didnt work, got error “An error has occurred - please try reloading the page.”
