Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

Hi tmccombie, thanks for sharing this Information, it's great to hear that image targets are now supported.

If anyone gets the message:

“Whoops! Error loading Experience tracker data”

You just have to apply the vuforia view update and everything works fine again.

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

Hi, regarding image targets - I got the following error:

The project can't be published because your Experience Service does not support Image Target Generation

Protocol says:

[2018-11-16T08:56:59.150Z] error: [twx-studio:api] Error occured while publishing project ****** { message: 'ves-ar-extension:itg-not-supported-by-es',
i18n: true }

Does anybody know how to solve this?

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

Seems like the experience servers (cloud based) have to be updated. This may take a while, after that the error message should disappear.

One  other important thing to mention:

If you update an experience, the old one will be deleted and a new one is written on the server.

If you have downloaded the experience on a device, it will be deleated from you device. You will have to download the updated version and the old one is gone!

Just had a chance to play with this a little bit. It looks great!

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

Image targets are a very welcome addition.

 

On the HoloLens, when you are scanning for the image target, it shows the image that it is looking for inside the scan box which is great as the user then knows what they should be looking for:

But for mobile experiences, there's nothing to let you know what to look for, just the rectangle and a message saying to Point camera at image, but what image?

I know that I could use an initial 2D view or a pop-up with the image to give instructions to the user on what they should be looking for, but why?  It would be really nice to have the same functionality as the HoloLens scanning in the mobile scanning.

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

@tmccombie I'm getting an error when I try to publish an experience with Image Targets. PTC Cloud sent me a notice a few weeks back saying my dev environment was going to 8.3.6 be updated on Nov 20th. When I tried to publish before this date I got an error saying the server didn't support image targets.

 

I did not get an alert from my uptime monitoring system on the 20th which usually happens during an update, but maybe they were fast. Does anyone know how to check the version of the Experience Server? Or what causes this error?

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

One of my customers is having the same issue. On this note:

 

1) Is there an easy way to check the version of the Experience service, as @jmikesell asks?

2) What is the mechanism for rolling out updates to PTC cloud servers? What notifications are available regarding updates, and is there a process for requesting an expedited update in order to access new features like this?

Re: What's New in Vuforia Studio 8.3.6

(In case it's not clear from context, I'm hoping someone from PTC will respond, maybe @tmccombie or anyone else who can shed some light on the server update process. Thanks!)
