I'd like to know if it is possible to detect multiple targets at the same time. By this I mean overlay content on two or more different targets simultaneously.
With the sample apps (JS iOS & Native iOS), I'm not able to overlay content on both the surfer AND the biker images at the same time.
Is it possible to have it so that content is overlaid on both images at the same time, by perhaps instantiating multiple Client Trackers within a class?
See attached image. It shows only the surfer image being interacted with.
Unfortunately tracking and augmenting multiple image targets simultaneously is currently not supported.
Can you describe in more detail what you are trying to acheive? There may be alternative ways to acheive your goals.
Hi Eva, thank you for replying.
I'm attempting to create an app for an art gallery, where the art pieces are relatively close together.
I'd like to provide rich content overlaid on these items (video etc.), or buttons that could point to URL links and resolve in a web view on the user's device.
I can't think of other potential solutions apart from multiple image target augmentation, but if you have further ideas, please let me know.
What you could do is create additional target images for those art pieces that are placed close to each other. So for example, you have an image target for Art Piece#1 and an image target for Art Piece#2. If these two pieces are placed really close to each other you would want to recognise each piece at the same time and place relative information. In order to do that, you could create a third image collection that would contain Art Piece#1 and Art Piece#2 and place relative information for each art piece.
Great news for you as today we launched SDK 7, which introduces as well your feature request, “Multiple Image Target”. In a nutshell, SDK 7 includes:
‘Multiple Image Target’ feature enables recognition of
several images simultaneously. Once the images are recognized,
developers will be able to layer 3D models, buttons, videos, images and
more on each target. Additionally, augmentations will be able to
interact with each other based on the targets’ positions.
Check out this blog for a developer insight. You can download the new SDK 7 directly from our Download page. Enjoy our new cool features ;)
Does this new feature work if the two images are the same ? For example, if I have two cards "Diplodocus" in my field of view, will I see two diplodocus ?
