Have you ever stood at a museum exhibit and wanted to know more about the art or artifact than the little placard provides? There should really be an app for that. Well, you can make such an app with image and object detection and tracking in ARKit 2!
I do have a question. How can I detect when a detected image moves “off the screen”. For example, if displaying information for a really wide object, and want portions to be detected, as I move across the area, I want to remove the text when it off the screen, and when a new section that is recognized comes into frame, replace the text.
I am unsure how the app can detect that the image has moved outside of the camera view.
The first place to start with figuring this out, is to use Apple’s scanning app and use the test button after the model is created to make sure that the detection works. Also as a starting point make sure you have the same lighting and background conditions. Also depending on the object and conditions and the detectinon can be a little finnicky and requires a fair amount of walking around the object, moving in and out, slowly.
Are there any requirements on the video MP4 that is going in there? When I use the one provided it works fine, but anything else I try and include (even with the same name) just shows a blank element. It’s detecting the image, just not playing the video.
