In recent years, augmented reality software maker 8th Wall has merged its platform into a cross-platform mobile apps augmented reality toolkit and web-based AR experiences.
Now the company was founded by former engineers from Facebook and Google allows anyone who has a web browser to publish their own AR camera effects.
The AR camera is a light version of the 8th wall web tool. With a drag-and-drop web interface and instant publishing feature, the AR camera removes the encoding completely from the AR prototyping process. Users can add multiple 3D models and animations to their AR experiences. The console allows users to adjust light intensity, distance, scaling, and animation speed. In addition, users can insert banners and links to other websites in the experience.
The tool is also free for 10 AR camera projects and 1,000 views per month. For more than that, an AR Camera Plus plan is required, which is billed at a cost per view.
The new AR Camera feature is part of Release 10 of the 8th Wall XR platform, which includes the 8th Wall Web development environment. The new version also includes a new design for 8th Wall XR and a new developer console for the 8th Wall Web Tool.
I tried the tool, and it's really simple. I was able to easily create two AR camera experiences from 3D models created by Tipatat Chennavasin, the general partner and co-founder of the Venture Reality Fund (and the NR30 member), and hosted on Google Poly's Web AR platform AR camera for easy prototyping "width =" 330 "height =" 330 "style =" max-width: 532px; height: auto; "/>
