Instagram Story filters have become the norm across popular social media apps, and now Facebook‘s previously closed Spark AR Studios beta has become available to everyone. Available on both Mac and PC, the program allows users to create their own original 3D face filters, including tools to import objects sounds, synch movements, and publish those filters on Instagram.

Although the program involves coding, the Learning Centre available features tutorials on how to animate 3D objects, scripting basics, debugging and more. Instagram will also be launching a new Effect Gallery to showcase AR effects from friends and creators.

Users will be able to browse effects and try them out by tapping on the effect name in Instagram Story posts.

Check out Spark AR on Facebook’s website, and then check out people’s first impression of the Apple Card.
