      UIView.animate(withDuration: 1) { self.view.alpha = 1 }

Layout

You can change the location of the camera controls (flash, timer, and front/back camera selection) or hide them altogether:

view.addCameraBackground(
   showButtons: true,
   buttonMargins: UIEdgeInsets(top: 30, left: 10, bottom: 10, right: 10),
   buttonsLocation: .left
)
