When you upload a target to Studio, our image recognition system checks if the loaded image has good detection quality.
This defines if the image can be detected at the moment of being scanned with CamOnApp, and in this way, be able to correctly display the interactive experience in augmented reality. The quality of detection is plotted through a ranking that goes from zero to five stars, meaning “zero stars” a zero detection quality and “five stars” an optimal detection quality.
In addition to estimating this ranking and prior to moving forward with the composition, it is important to confirm the detection quality by publishing a simple experience and scanning the target.
In this way, the behavior of the target is checked through the app.
In some cases, targets with two or three stars can work perfectly. The quality of detection of a target is directly related to the design of the image and the material of the support to be scanned.
Tips to create a printed support with good detection quality:
- Variety of forms and contrasts between the graphic elements that make up the design.
- Designs with angular shapes that generate vertices (vertices generate better detection points than rounded shapes).
- Well-defined figures and backgrounds.
- Graphic contents in most of the surface of the composition.
- Matte printed supports, without reflections.
When defining the design of the target, avoid:
- Large areas with empty spaces of graphic content.
- Minimalist designs or without a variety of contrasts in the design elements.
- Designs that contain only uniform repetitive patterns (eg backs for photos in events).
- Text blocks with small letters that occupy a large part of the surface (eg text blocks of articles in graphic media).
- Printed supports with glitter, materials with reflections.
