First of all congratulations for your product! It’s really nice!

I only have one small question, can we replace the 3D models for something that we can model in xcode iOS? We are trying to build something like this: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Ss_rLDyRQCk/SsaGzhO37gI/AAAAAAAAL8Q/dbEpbxrEs48/s400/SeriousGames7.jpg. To do this we cannot have static models.

Best regards,

Nuno Patraquim

Hi Nuno,

if the data you want to display does not change very ofter over time then you could generate it dynamically using iOS APIs (for instance to create the content of a UIView or whatever) and then create a texture/image of that view, save it temporarly to a file, create a ARImage instance from it and finally add this ARImage to the ARMediaLocationTrackingViewController. This should help somehow, I think the most tricky part would be to create a texture/image from a UIView object but I'm quite confident that there are lot's of suggestions and tutorials related to iOS that can be found in the Web.


Hope this helps.
