Add some holiday cheer to your photos and videos with AR Effect!

Watch the snow fall and Santa fly by with his reindeer, next to a beautiful Christmas tree and a stack of presents. The Holiday theme for AR Effect lets you dress up as an elf, put on a big white beard or grow antlers and take holiday photos to remember!

Sony's FACE RECOGNITION Technology and SmartAR* Engine automatically detect faces and 3D environments and decorate them with fun AR items. Palm recognition** engine detects palms and decorates them.

To interact with AR items:
1. Tap on 3D objects to change
2. Drag 3D objects to reposition them

This theme app requires version 4.4.2 or higher of AR effect. Please upgrade your AR effect application before downloading and installing the theme.
