Did background blur change? it looks better now…

However, the "Use custom background" returns an error when uploading a png or jpg.

VM38:47 Uncaught (in promise) Error: At /opt/banuba_sdk/libs/scene/bnb/scene/internal/assets/images/procedural_textures/camera_composer.cpp:312. Unknown type of background image

    Yes, we have improved the background blur and effects! We are aware of the issue you're pointing out and are working on it. We plan to deploy a fix for it this week. Apologies in the interim!

  • Any plans on adding additional integration from Banuba, like filters with Daily JS?

    We are certainly considering that. We're first looking to roll out background blur and effects to existing platforms, then adding support to new platforms (namely Safari). Once that's done, we'll look into other parts of the Face AR SDK, which would be in Q1 at the soonest.

    We've temporarily disabled the custom background feature while we investigate the issue. We'll be rolling it back out very soon! Apologies for the disruption.
