Effect House 2.7.0


You know what they say, the grass is always green(er) screen!

But all jokes aside, creating effects just got a whole lot crazier. With the release of Effect House v2.7.0, TikTok creators can upload camera roll images to Community Effects. :exploding_head:

2.7.0 will gradually be rolling out to all users.

New Features

  • Add a User Media Texture asset in the Assets panel to incorporate camera roll images into an effect. Try uploading a custom image to a green screen effect!

  • Use Effect Icon Creator to easily design a face-based effect icon. Select a provided model or upload your own image to preview your face-based effect, which will then be auto-populated in the effect submission form.

  • The Pin to Mesh component enables you to fix the position and orientation of 3D objects to deformable meshes. For example, you can pin objects to a specific point on a 3D face mesh so that it follows facial movements.
  • Pin to Mesh requires TikTok app version 30.3.0 or higher.

  • Use Old, a new generative effect, to age your face!

    • Please note: This generative effect is performance intensive. We recommend limiting the complexity of effects that use this capability to prevent performance issues.


  • The Effect House home screen has been updated!
