Wish List

Hi all, Please use this thread as a place to consolidate feature requests for the QCAR SDK. If there is something missing that is holding back your development efforts, we'd like to know about it! If you're having trouble with an existing feature and would like more sample code to help you get started, we'd like to know about that too. Looking forward to your input, thanks! - Kim


im  aLar.i  am  new to  this platform  actually  but  its  quite interesting.....i  would to  have like more sample code to help me  to  get started  with  this  platform...


There is sample code available here - https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/sample-apps

Take a look at the User Defined Targets sample project..

[B]Target Management System API[/B] Some sort of API to generate new image targets on the fly. This could be either built in or via the Target Management web service. Maybe you could outline reason why it may [B]not[/B] be add it to the SDK? I know it may slow down the app etc.

hi, i have a few features at the moment that i would really like to see in a future version. 1. a unified version of the unity plugin for both, android and ios, or at least a clear step-by-step guide on how to implement both plugins in one single project.

[U" />Larger tracking distance for Frame/pattern-markers[/U" /> I'd just like to add that for various applications, we at twnkls would also REALLY like (frame) markers to be detectable/trackable at larger distances (as with ARToolkit, for example).

-Function to export a Config.xml file (for Multi Targets) for the setup which has been created at runtime using the API.

hi, here is another one. - the ability to convert manually in unity arranged image targets to one multi target and generate the according .xml code. i guess this could be done with a editor script but it would be a nice thing to have it already implemented in the QCAR package. EDIT1: - a "debug" mo

(they aren't doing AR, just feature tracking supported with IMU). These are academic guys - so far as I know it isn't available commercially... yet. Seems to me that whoever gets it out first in an SDK will be way ahead of the pack.

shovancj, render camera to texture is supported in the latest beta. Have a look, it is pretty cool.

Implementing a way to load several model formats, such as obj or 3ds. This is the best AR-SDK I have used so far, but since you are basically required to use a 3D-Engine to display models, there is a lot of overhead.

From a question I had, we'd like this to be possible: [quote]Next question is would there be any way for us to control the frequency that the framebuffer is analyzed for tracking?

- Model/Animation Loader like min3D Framework - Support for Movie Texture like this Video shows - Android 4.x - Front-Camera - easier integration of light and shadow - better integration of Unity in Eclipse (with

Russel, some of the things you want you can do with the Unity3d game engine.

I've also written "better integration of Unity3D in Eclipse" ;)... I don't know whether my app in Eclipse can communicate with Unity3D?

Hi, would it be possible to create a "Multi Target" that is basicaly an normal flipped box? This would enable developers to create complete virtual rooms. Would be very cool. Simon

@schreibtisch: this can already be done since the beginning of QCAR by simply adjusting the .xml file.

thats nice- but since it is kinda hard to produce a multimarker like a box to test, how exactly would i have to change the xml to create a box with faces facing inwards (normals flipped) ?


I want to ask if any one can help me developing website where people of my country can find the <a href="https://mmi.edu.pk/cardiologist/">Best Cardiologist in Karachi</a> at Memon Medical Institute website?

Smart Terrain still working?


Where can I find information/documentation/tutorial about smart terrain on the latest versions of unity? Or has the vuforia stopped supporting smart terrain? Because there are 5 years ago tutorials on youtube and links on the vuforia website do not work :




Hey there,


You're right. The Smart Terrain API has been deprecated since Vuforia Engine v6.5.19.

What you can include in your portfolio when you are a professional freelance java spring framework developer?

Hello! According to my experience, The portfolio of a Java spring framework developer who is looking to work as a freelancer should be neat and detailed. The portfolio should not be made up of too many projects that the freelancer has previously worked on, but it should have enough material to demonstrate the skills and experience that he or she can bring to the table.

Here are some things that you might include in your portfolio:

- A personal website

- Professional blog posts

- Online portfolios

- GitHub projects

- Tutorials on how to use certain platforms or tools

- Code samples

Object targets


I went through the pricing page and options in detail but could not find any information on Object Targets. I wish to know if Object Targets are free to use and come under the Basic Plan or do I require a Premium Plan for them? 

Thank You,



With the recent updates to Engine licensing, Object Targets now come under the Premium Plan.

Thanks for the response. I submitted the form that pops up on clicking "Contact us for pricing" but there has been no reply or contact. There is also no information to be found anywhere on how the Premium Plan works, and what it entails.

Detection optimisation


I am currently writing a thesis with Vuforia as a large part of it. How would it be possible to optimise the detection for a certain usage?

Can I find a technical explanation of Vuforia somewhere?

Thanks in advance!



Happy to help with your thesis questions related to Vuforia Engine.

I suggest going through the best practices articles in the library which improve detection based on the targets. I summed them up for you: 


BIM Positioning

I'm Trying to position a "Building Model" over the "Physical (Real Building)" accurately but I've been unsuccessful. Currently I'm allowing the user to choose a wall to use for positioning. After choosing the AR Camera Opens and the user will be able to place 2 points on each side of the wall choosen. the first point is used to determine the location of the whole building. the second point is used to determine the rotation. But I find this solution not accurate. How can i improve it ? Or is there any better solutions? even if there is one (with Cost)  I really need to be able to do that in my app.
