Preparing to shoot the AR marker

  • You may have found it cumbersome to download and print out an AR marker. But now there’s an extremely simple way to experience AR simulation without a printed marker!
  • The 2013 Smart TV AR Simulator App doesn’t use a designated marker. With this app, you can use the objects you find around you. It’s best to use a credit card with a colorful pattern or putting two playing cards (back to back) together to use as a marker. In the case of a credit card, the more elaborate and colorful, the better.
  • Then simply place the colorful object against a contrastingly neutral background, and after adjusting the lighting or general surroundings to ensure that they’re also consist, you can start shooting!
