News September 2023 - Junctions
Create Powerful Multi-Image AR Experiences with Ease
Track pages in magazines, paintings at exhibitions, treasure hunts & more
We've been working on a fantastic feature that can change the way you use image tracking in your Hololinks. You now have the ability to track 5, 10 or even 20 images at the same time.
This means that Hololinks can now encompass entire rooms, outdoor spaces, or extensive product lines. Imagine:
- a magazine with interactive content on each page
- a virtual gallery where each painting triggers its own digital overlay
- an outdoor scavenger hunt engaging multiple landmarks in your city
Check out this idea for a product comparison Hololink that we've created:
The feature has been thoroughly road-tested, and has already been used in a UNESCO World Capital of Architecture Hololink that has been viewed by thousands.👀 We've written a case-study about the experience.
Multi-image Tracking, built into the storyboard
Thanks to our editor's Storyboard feature, all you have to do, to create a multi-image Hololink, is to add a junction scene and then drag arrows from the junction to each of the image tracking scenes that you want to use. It's that simple!😌
You can read more about how junctions work here.
And speaking of the storyboard; we've made it even more clear than before, so that you can always see which type of scenes are in your storyboard. Just check the right hand corner of each scene.
Updated Media Libraries and Upload Fix
Our Media Libraries have been given a face-lift, so that they are easier to navigate. And at the same time, we've removed the upload button from the scene editor, so that you now upload everything from the same place.
Just open a media library and click the purple upload button in the upper right hand corner to add new content to your scene and your library at the same time.
Optimised Size Estimation
We've seen that the download size shown in the storyboard was not always 100% correct. We've optimised this, and the number shown is now exact and correct.
As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback. And remember, we create new features based on customer feedback and wishes, so don't hesitate to write to us.
