Another AR test for game development, but here I was looking to raise the level of interaction with real-world objects. The idea here is to use your phone to morph physical portraits or photos into magical moving pictures that emit supernatural energy and reveal a clue in a puzzle. The results are quite a bit rougher than expected—it simply takes a lot of time and troubleshooting to get these 3d assets to perform in the phone as they were designed in Unity. Slightly frustrating, but worth it for what I learned along the way.
After Effects to edit videos and generate assets for the particle systems…
Unity and Vuforia to create the AR features, 3D environment, and particle systems…
Xcode for testing in the phone.
