What maximum size of Area Target can be created

September 12, 2021 - 8:03pm #1

Hi ,

Can anyone please help me with the maximum size of Area Target we can create using any scanner.

Say I want to use it for a large building of 25 floors , each floor area is more that 4000 sq ft. Is it possible to create area target for all 25 floors (4000 x 25 = 100000 sq ft )  ???

Area Target Blocking Light in Unity

SDK 10.0
September 3, 2021 - 7:51am #1

I am using area targets in unity. 

The area target is a room with walls and a ceiling.

I find that if I place lights outside the walls they don't penetrate.

The area target itself obviously isn't visible.


How do I stop this?

Load Area Target from AssetBundle saved on server

Can I download and activate area target during run-time on HoloLens1? My plan is to save the area targets as assetbundle on a server, the user can choose which area target to download and activate through virtual UI on HoloLens1. Could you provide some cases or codes? Thanks a lot!

I was wondering, apart from the recommended scanners in your tutorials, can I use other scanners to get data and then use ATG to generate area target?

Matterport vs Ipad

SDK 10.0
August 15, 2021 - 10:01am #1

Will I see a significant increase in are target recognition if I upgraded from IPAD to Matterport for creating are targets?

The things I would hope for are

- Quicker recognition.

- Less jitter of AR objects once the target has been detected
