scanline & feature points without internet

March 12, 2014 - 6:30am #1

Hello Developers!

I am using device database and cloud recognition in a single app. If network connection is lost, the app still scans targets via Device database but the scanline and feature points are not visible. When I restart the app with internet connection, the scanline and feature points are again up and running.

Is it coded in such a way or am I missing something? I want the scanning activity while no internet connection also.

I am using Unity 4.2.1 and Vuforia SDK 2.8.7.

Thanks in advance!

The only possible workaround that I am aware of would be to implement a scanline animation (e.g. in OpenGL) on your own, trying to mimic the Cloud Reco one, and use it with device DB.

I didn't find any option to stop it altogether if I want to use my own scanning animation for device database and cloud reco., both.

It looks odd in the app if I have different animations running with and without internet.

Is there a work around??

The scanline and scanpoints are a Cloud Reco specific feature, so they are only displayed when using Cloud Reco targets, i.e. when the TargetFinder class is started.

For device databases this feature is simply not available.
