6️⃣ Initialize the SDK #

import 'package:zego_effects_plugin/zego_effects_plugin.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() {

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
    String version = 'Unknown';

    // Apply license from ZEGO
    final license appSign = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwzyv123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwzyz123';

    void initState() {

        // Load Effects resources
        // Create Effects

    // Get version
    ZegoEffectsPlugin.instance.getVersion().then((value) {
      version = value;

    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        return MaterialApp(home: Scaffold(
            appBar: AppBar(title: const Text('ZegoEffects')),
            body: Center(child: Text('Version: $version')),

  2. Add the implementation of this method in ZegoEffectsPlugin.java, and finally call the native method to complete.

You can refer to the android native documentation to add beauty effects.ZegoEffects Reference

8️⃣ FAQ #

1. iOS: This error occurs when using Platform View: [VERBOSE-2:platform_view_layer.cc(28)] Trying to embed a platform view but the PaintContext does not support embedding.

This setting is no longer required for versions of Flutter 1.22 and later.

Open the iOS native project (Runner. Xcworkspace) that needs to use the Platform View, add the field io.flutter.embedded_views_preview to Info.plist, its value is YES.

flutter enable platform view

2. iOS: fatal error: lipo: -extract armv7 specified but fat file: [...] does not contain that architecture

This issue usually occurs when switching iOS devices and can be resolved by removing the flutter-project-path/build/ and flutter-project-path/ios/DerivedData/ directories. (if you cannot find DerivedData folder, find /Users/your-user-name/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/ instead.)

3. iOS: The error occurs when compiling: CDN: trunk URL couldn't be downloaded or CDN: trunk Repo update failed

Open the Terminal, run 'cd' into the ios folder (the directory where the Podfile file is located) in the project root directory, and run the command pod repo update.

This is usually caused by a poor network, it is recommended to enable the agent. For details, see iOS CocoaPods - FAQ.

4. iOS: Black tearing crack occurs when previewing.

Please enable Platform View for rendering on the iOS Platform. Due to some known compatibility issues, rendering with Texture for preview using the Express SDK on the iOS Platform cannot achieve the desired effect temporarily. This issue will be fixed in the later version.

5. Android: When the Flutter was upgraded to V1.10 or later, NoClassDefFoundError appeared on the Android release causing the crash.

The Flutter has enabled code obfuscations by default in version 1.10 or later. Please add the -keep class configuration to the SDK in the app/proguard-rules.pro project to prevent obfuscations.

-keep class **.zego.**{*;}
6. Android: The following crashes may occur when TextureRenderer is frequently created or destroyed.
OpenGLRenderer E [SurfaceTexture-0-4944-46] updateTexImage: SurfaceTexture is abandoned!

​    flutter E [ERROR:flutter/shell/platform/android/platform_view_android_jni.cc(39)] java.lang.RuntimeException: Error during updateTexImage (see logcat for details)

The cause of this issue is that the Flutter Engine caused thread insecurity when calling the updateTexImage() and release() of the SurfaceTexture, and this has been fixed in version 1.24-candidate.2. For details, see https://github.com/flutter/engine/pull/21777
