  • ~/.pub-cache/hosted/<plugin-version>/android/libs/deepar.aar (Linux/ Mac)

  • %LOCALAPPDATA%\Pub\Cache\hosted\\deepar_flutter-<plugin-version>\android\libs\deepar.aar(Windows)

  • compileSdkVersion should be 33 or more

3/ Also add the following permission requests in your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"  />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO"/>
<uses-permission android:name="Manifest.permission.CAPTURE_AUDIO_OUTPUT" />

Flutter Installation Steps

1/ Initialize DeepArController by passing in your license keys for both platforms.

<final  DeepArController _controller = DeepArController();
androidLicenseKey:"---android key---",
iosLicenseKey:"---iOS key---",
resolution: Resolution.high); />

2/ Place the DeepArPreview widget in your widget tree to display the preview.

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return _controller.isInitialized
? DeepArPreview(_controller)
: const Center(
child: Text("Loading Preview")

3/ Load an effect of your choice by passing the asset file to it in switchPreview.


4/ To take a picture, use takeScreenshot() which return the picture as file.

final File file = await _controller.takeScreenshot();

if (_controller.isRecording) {
} else {
final File videoFile = _controller.startVideoRecording();
