Actions and Design Features

Posted on 19-11-2020 by MAD Gaze

 

Simple AR offers various interactive tools and features for users to craft AR & VR implementation without dwelling into programming.
Every interactive design can be performed through simple mouse clicks and drags. These tools are known as Actions in Simple AR.
Let us have a look at what are these Actions and how can we apply them!



 

GPS (location recognition):
 

GPS (location recognition) is a feature for you to give your project the ability to only be triggered when it is being viewed at a selected location.
This feature can be very helpful for location based AR & VR implementation, such as real estate showcase, treasure hunting activity and etc.
The feature needs to be activated at the beginning of your project building, check on the GPS option to activate the feature. at the lower tight corner of the project building window

 



 

Key in the GPS coordinates of your selected location. You can find the coordinates on Google Map, or any other GPS websites.

Example of extracting GPS coordinates from Google Map:

 


 


 

You can manually adjust the map positioning on Simple AR if the GPS coordinates from Google Map are inaccurate.
Simply drag and double click on the desired location on Simple AR GPS panel.

 



 

AR Kit/Core:

 

This feature full utilizes AR Kit/AR Core technologies of Apple and Google to perform SLAM (space recognition) that tracks your movement in depth on your AR implementation.
It can be activated at the beginning of building a space recognition AR project.

 


 

With the implementation of AR Kit/ Core,
your space recognition AR can be projected on a surface without an AR Target and responses to your movement when you get closer to or move further away from the projected AR asset.

 

Audience can move nearer to the asset to closely examine the details on a space recognition AR implementation.

 



 

AR Project Actions:

 

Actions in Simple AR offer you various interactive designs for you to develop your project, and the best part is they do not need to be coded manually.
When you have an asset selected, you will be able to apply Actions by clicking Add Action button at the basic attributes panel.

 


 

These are the actions you can apply for AR project:
