So I have some steps built in creo illustrator and I am now trying to import this into Vuforia Studio however I can not select the PVI file even after I upload it. The only option it gives me is "Figure 1". Has anyone else seen this before? I can upload the main model using the pvz file no problem but I can not use the PVI file I have saved out.
Out of Illustrate you should be publishing a .pvz. This is the only file you need to bring into Studio. The pvz contains the sequence animation info. To my knowledge you can't bring a pvi file into Studio at all.
Once you apply your .pvz as a resource to a model widget you should see all your figures listed under the "Sequence" drop down. Playing these sequences is well documented.
Thank you for the information, the tutorial I was following said to save out and load the PVI separately to the pvz file.
Right now I only have one figure in Creo and 20 steps in the PVZ file. Do I need to change this to one figure for each step? (So I would have 20 figures instead of just 1).
Possibly the separate pvi was for a very old version of Studio.
You can leave it as many steps in one figure. Basically you can select a figure and then play it either step by step or "play all" which will play first thru last step without stopping. I typically have multiple figures in a model one for each animation. so figure for "Part x removal", "Part y removal", "exploded parts diagram", "Service procedure z"
