Meitu recently has launched its MCPstudio AR creation tool. As a new creation tool, MCPstudio allows creators to edit AR stickers, design makeup looks, develop fun face effects, create interactive special effects, and more in order to help designers turn their creative ideas into real AR effects in Meitu's apps.
Meitu will give creators up to a CNY 10,000 cash bonus for a single AR effect based on the popularity of the effect. Independent designers and design agencies will not only get the opportunity to showcase their talents through the Meitu Creator Platform, but also have the chance to earn substantial income. In addition, the initiative is expected to attract more high-quality original designs and more design talents to further enrich Meitu's content ecosystem.

Meitu Creator Platform has begun recruiting high-quality AR effect creators from the network. Creators can now design stunning AR effects with its exclusive creation tool MCPstudio's open makeup and sticker technologies. In addition, creators can also develop various funny face effects and more fashionable effects as well as create their own special effects, which can be activated by hand signs such as the “V for Victory” sign.

As a pioneer to make the world a more beautiful place, the release of the MCPstudio AR creation tool is expected to play a vital role in promoting the improvement of the Meitu community. Previously, the materials used in Meitu's products all came from Meitu's internal designers. With the launch of MCPstudio, a large number of brilliant designers can join Meitu's design camp, liberating productivity and activating creativity in the community at the same time. This will allow community creators and developers to jointly optimize the community's content structure from the supply side, and will surely bring new experiences to users and substantially contribute to the enrichment of the community.
