It's getting very popular the Disney Pixar filter on Instagram, an effect that allows you to change the appearance of the people using it and to equate it to a face of some of the film characters of this well-known film studio around the world.

You've probably already seen people who have used it and have uploaded their image or video with the face of some of the animated characters that appear in Disney Pixar films, but the truth is that the filter is not available on Instagram, at least not at the moment.



It is a Snapchat filter, so that's where you should use it and then upload the result to Instagram. Therefore, you need to have a Snapchat account to use the Cartoon 3D Style filter, that's what it's called and you'll find it in the app's filter gallery. Do the following:

  1. Open Snapchat and go to the magnifying glass icon to search for filters. Now write the name » Style Cartoon 3D » and open the camera to take the photo or video.
  2. Once saved, you just have to enter Instagram and upload that photo or video that you have taken with the Snapchat Cartoon 3D Style filter, it is likely that someone created will soon upload the same filter to Instagram, even if you have similar ones in the Instagram filter gallery .

Via the Voila Al Artist app

There are several apps to perform these effects with photographs and one of them is Voila Al Artist, in it you will find the filter «Cartoon 3D» that interests us and that is what we will use in this case to transform our face into an animated character similar to those of Disney.
