LucidPix Creators Program
We’re always working to enhance your creative palette with new templates and features. There are different types of 3D frames to interactive, location, face-oriented and many others. If you’re submission gets accepted, we’ll follow-up with launch of your frame so you can capture and share.
Keep reading to learn how to create 3D frames step-by-step, and submit your own at the end of this page!
We can’t wait to see what you make. Happy creating!
How to Create 3D Frames
Anyone can crate a 3D Frame and submit it for a chance to be included as an official frame in the LucidPix app. Each 3D Frame is built from two separate elements; an interesting image and descriptive depth map. Full details found below.
User Supplied Image
No need to do anything here, this image is provided by the User.
3D Frame Image
You create this frame, being sure to leave areas for the Users’ image to show through. Save as a transparent .png file.
Next, you create a depth map based off your 3D Frame Image. Choose from 5 depth levels. Save as a transparent .png file.
Final 3D Frame
Final 3D Frame
We apply the depth map to the 3D Frame and User image, enabling 3D animation of your new creation!
3D Frame Details
While creating 3D Frames is easy, there are a few specifications you must keep in mind.
Each 3D Frame submission must include the following three items; (1) 3D Frame, (2) Depth Map, and (3) Thumbnail. Incomplete or incorrect submissions will not be considered for app inclusion.
The image portion of your 3D Frame
Size : 1440×1744
File Type : .png
File Name : name.png
Color : full color
(0,0,0 & 255,255,255 are not allowed)
Transparent alpha background
Used to define depth in your 3D Frame
Size : 1440×1744
File Type : .png
File Name : name_depth.png
Color : mono, no transparency
1, 1, 1 = farthest
254,254,254 = closest
(0,0,0 & 255,255,255 are not allowed)
Depth Map Layers
Your Depth Map is a grayscale image with up to 5 colors.
Lighter colors are closer, darker colors are further away.
No gradients or transparency, only solid colors.

How to preview your new 3D Frame on Facebook
Please be sure to preview your creations on Facebook before submitting for our consideration.
- Create your 3D Frame and Depth Map.
- Choose a background image for testing purposes.
- Place your 3D Frame on top of test image and export as a .png file.
- File naming is key. 3D Frames can have any name, e.g. “name.png”. The Depth Map should have the same name with “_depth” appended at the end, e.g. “name_depth.png”
- Upload both files into a single post on Facebook for live preview.
Submit Your 3D Frames
Please zip the (1) Thumbnail, (2) 3D Frame and (3) Depth Map into a single file and attach to the form below.
Not sure how to create a 3D Frame for LucidPix? No problem! Check out the guide above!
Please be sure your zip file contains all three items: the Thumbnail, 3D Frame and Depth Map. By submitting a 3D Frame you agree to abide by the Creators Program Agreement, outlined below.

5.1 Pricing and Payment Details. At this point in time, we do not have a payment system developed for 3D Frames, and user-submitted 3D Frames will receive no monetary compensation for their inclusion in the Website or App. This may change in the future. We may modify the Pricing and Payment Details from time to time, including but not limited to updating the categories of Works, updating pricing and payment agreement, and/or directing you to new Pricing and Payment Details for pricing and payment information. You should look at the Pricing and Payment Details regularly. By continuing to submit or upload Works or by not removing Works, you are agreeing to any new Pricing and Payment Details as revised from time to time. Except as stated in this agreement, we have no payment obligations to you. We may use third-party payment processors such as PayPal to facilitate the payment to you. If we or our partners offer a promotion, trial, test, or watermarked version of your Work, we are not subject to the payment obligations in this section.
5.2 Taxes. You are responsible for completing any necessary IRS forms in order to receive payment. A “US Person” (as defined by the IRS) must submit a completed IRS Form W-9 to us.

If any fee payable to you is subject to tax withholding or other tax collected at the source by any taxing authority, we will deduct such tax from the fee payable to you. We will make reasonable efforts to provide you with a copy of the official receipt covering such payment of tax, if such a copy is available. We will reasonably cooperate with you in order to obtain the benefits of any applicable tax treaties pertaining to such taxes.

8.1 Termination. We may terminate This agreement, remove any Work, or suspend your account, without prior notice. We will have no payment obligation to you if we terminate this agreement for cause. By way of example, you may not download LucidPix content for the primary purpose of artificially inflating the number of downloads of content by a given contributor or for the primary purpose of artificially triggering payments. You may terminate this agreement at any time with at least 90 days’ prior written notice to us via email to [email protected] We will use reasonable efforts to have any Work that you have removed from our Website be removed from the websites of any of our affiliates (including co-branded websites) within 90 days after removal of the Work from our Website.

8.2 Effect of Termination. We may continue to use the Work solely for internal archival and reference purposes or as stated in this section 8.2. Sections 3, 4, 5.1 (if LucidPix has any payment obligations), 5.2, 7, 8, and 9.1 will survive the termination of This agreement. Any licenses granted to our users or to us prior to the date of termination or prior to the removal of any Work from the Website will survive the termination of This agreement. Additionally, users whose User Agreements allow them to license and possess a Work as a comp version (e.g., a preview sample) may further convert that license to a usage license. We will provide payment as stated in section 5 for any license fee that we receive as related to the Work after termination of This agreement.
9.1. Relationship. If you reside in the United States, your relationship is with LucidPix, a United States company.
9.2 Communications. You acknowledge that LucidPix may contact you via e-mail in order to communicate with you regarding LucidPix’s content needs and effective ways for us to work together.
