Known Issue: 3D Panel widget is not functional in Vuforia Studio 9.0.0

Known Issue: 3D Panel widget is not functional in Vuforia Studio 9.0.0

In an effort to improve the 3D Eyewear authoring experience, we are developing a 3D Panel container widget. However, it was mistakenly included with the 9.0.0 release, and should not be used, as it is not functional. We are actively working on and verifying a fix for this issue and will update this post when it is available.

Hi tmccombie,

Thanks for letting us know. Could you give some insight what this widget will do?

Will it enable the authors to group widgets and move them together? Maybe billboarding with multiple labels will work with this.

Hi Whity,

 

Your comments are on the right track 🙂

 

We found that 3D eyewear authors want to create user interfaces in 3D space from a group of widgets. The panel will allow hololens widgets to be grouped together. The panel will also provide a background color to make sure widgets don't blend into the background. Future iterations of the panel allow the panel to "follow the user" and be pinned to a space

 

@whity are you currently authoring any 3D eyewear experiences?

Hi Marty,

 

Thanks for your reply. I think this is will be a really helpful thing. In previous experiences I tried billboarding of labels and having a colored square in behind. Unfortunately the square will come before the text when you change your point of view. This possibly will be solved with the 3D container. 

Currently I am both working on eyewear experiences and on tablet solutions.

Hi, @whity 

 

I have no HMD for testing, but this works on my mobile device.

  • A 3D sphere model
  • A 3D Gauge or Image or Label placed at the center of the sphere, check Billboard and Always on top

billboard && alwaysOnTopbillboard && alwaysOnTop

Does this fit you need?

Hi @dsgnrClarK ,

 

that gif looks pretty neat. I think I described the problem wrong.

It is difficult to have several text lines in front of card board. 

When aligning it looks like this:

But after activating billboarding & always on top and changin the perspective, it looks like this:

But I think the 3D-Container should solve the problem.

Re: Known Issue: 3D Panel widget is not functional in Vuforia Studio 9.0.0

3D-container is on its way.

Meanwhile, something extraordinary mentioned by @sdidier worth a try.

3D SVG widget3D SVG widget

 

Nevertheless, 3D SVG Widget is not visible in Vuforia Studio Canvas, difficult to manipulate (size, location).

Also, the SVG Codes is only accessible by text editor, not very convenient.

 

And, even if 3D-Container is available, 3DLabel won't wrap text still.

So I suppose 3D SVG Widget would be a better solution, if SVG Codes could be controlled by JavaScript in View.js. (Maybe this is only limited by my skill...)

Re: Known Issue: 3D Panel widget is not functional in Vuforia Studio 9.0.0

the trick here is not to use multple objects, as the composition will never work as you thin (and this is true in the 3d example posted here - you can see the labels from one sphere overlapping another) so the trick is to combine the label and the backplate image into a single entity. 

 

the tml sensor (which is what the gauges are built from) supports this - you can mix image and text content onto a single entity.  The gauge widget provides the necessary fields - resource (the image) and text - so you don't need to understand tml to get the basics working.  Take one of the 3d gauges and experiment with changes to the settings...
