Camera Zoom

We have an interesting project that will require mobile device camera Zoom.

We posted the issue in the Forum, but it seems that zoom is not supported.


We tried to used the camera directly (Android), but got an exception (failed-to-connect-to-camera-service), because the camera resource is used by the QCAR lib.

The zoom feature is very important for our project and we would like to know if you have have a workaround solution.

We highly appreciate if you can support this feature in the beta release.


Best Regards,

Aric can you provide us with a little more information on your use case and requirements? Do you require a magnifying zoom, or simpy a zoom-like effect? Is this for specific devices capable of optical zoom?

* feel free to PM me if you would prefer to discuss your application privately.

Hi, I don't think there is any immediate plan to include such a feature in current beta of Vuforia, but I will mention your issue internally and get back to you with some updates.
