Portrait Skin Segmentation
The Portrait Skin Segmentation template lets you easily segment skin in the camera view and replace it with an image, text, 3D models, post effects and more. This template comes with body tracking to help you easily attach your art to the skin.
Tip: Since Skin Segmentation texture is a portrait effect, the effect works best when the user is close to the camera.
The Skin Segmentation template contains three sections that let you segment the skin and attach objects to the body and the user’s face.
This guide explains the function and use of each section.
Segmentation Post Effect

Portrait Skin Segmentation Post Effect.
This post effect uses the Portrait Segmentation texture to extract the skin part of the Device Camera texture and place it in the front of the camera. In other words, it masks the user’s skin and objects can be only shown if they are placed on the user’s skin.
Note: To show objects in areas other than the skin, place the object below the
Portrait Skin Segmentation Post Effect object in the hierarchy.
