Take a photo

I'd like to take a photo within my vuforia experience (using an ipad/iphone). For example, I have some text that says: Take a picture of 'x'. I would like to be able to click a button or something similar and be able to take a picture without the model from my experience overlaid on it. Is this possible? Assuming it is, can I then bind the photo to an image object within my experience?

Re: Take a photo

Hello jlbrenneke,

 

A solution to take a photo from camera without AR is described in this post :

https://community.ptc.com/t5/Vuforia-Studio/How-to-get-the-camera-picture/td-p/609640

 

The problem is to save it locally.

I suppose that we can use a this AngularJS function :

https://www.npmjs.com/package/angular-file-saver

 

  • Is it helping you ?

 

Best regards,

Samuel

Re: Take a photo

Hello @jlbrenneke,

so far not possible for all devices  as default Studio functionality but could be achieved on Android (I want to refer to the post : "How to get the camera picture")

you can try to use any third-party API so far, they provide JavaScript libraries allowing capturing of the pictures (and video)

A good example that this functionality could be implemented is the PTC product Vuforia Capture. This is the current PTC product which provides the functionality for capturing of videos and pictures and therefore there are no current plans to add such PTC API to Studio.

But with some additional work, as already mention above this could be achieve in  Studio
