Convert Framemarker to VuMark

June 29, 2017 - 8:03am #1

We have an app in the ios and android store that uses the old framemarker system.

Now apple is telling us, that our app will be deleted from the app store due to guildline issues. So we need to upload a new version of our app. Unfortunately the old framemarker system was replaced by vumarks. 

So we are trying to convert our old framemarker to vumarks, but when we upload the in illustrator generated .svg to the vuforia vumark database, it creates it's own pattern. 

But we need to tell the marker how it needs to look like because we can't change the old framemarkers, because it is an app that is still used.

Is it possible to convert our old framemarkers to the new vumark system and keep the old pattern?

Also we have a pattern with 36 squares and in illustrator it needs to be at least 35 oder 42 for example. So that can be an issue aswell.


Please help us as fast as possible.

The best recommendation I can give to you is to attempt to rebuild your app under the same conditions as you did previously (same Unity and Vuforia versions).

FrameMarkers were deprecated in Vuforia 6.0.112 and currently there is no process to convert them into Vumarks. Apologies that we cannot be of more assistance.

This is what Apple is telling us:


Dear Developer,

On September 1, 2016, we announced that we’re implementing an ongoing process of evaluating and removing apps that no longer function as intended, don’t follow current review guidelines, or are outdated.

We noticed that your app has not been updated in a significant amount of time.

Next Steps

To keep your app on the App Store, submit an updated version for review and make sure it follows the latest App Review Guidelines. If you are unable to submit an update within 30 days, your app will be removed from the App Store until you submit an update and it is approved.



So we just need to upload a new version of our App. But when we use the vuforia 5-5-9 version with the working framemarker sample, we can't upload it because we get a lot of errors in xcode due to the latest guidlines and 64bit stuff.

I've attached a picture of our marker so you can see, what it should look like.

The last version we used and uploaded to the store was unity 5.3.4 and Vuforia 5-5-9. And it was around october 2015.

Hello Ihno,

Did Apple mention which guidelines are going to cause the app to be removed from the app store?


Edit for additional questions: Which version of Vuforia and Unity was this built with originally?

I am having the same requirement.

It would help me to have pattern similar to the frame marker, e.g. the vumarker below, which was published with the announcement of the vumarkers.

Access to the template would help me a lot.

Thank you in advance.
