Target Manager

Develop > Target Manager is a tool for managing augmented reality image targets on the web. If you trying to using MAXST AR SDK's Image Tracker function, you have to manage images on Target Manager. Target Manager is optimized for Chrome browser.

Create Target Group

Target Group is a folder of image targets.

TM 첫 페이지

What Makes a Better Target Image?

Image Tracker recognizes and tracks images with feature points in them. The more feature points a target image has, the more augmentable it is, ensuring robuster recognition and tracking with less jittering.

When you upload a target image to Target Manager, the server will proceed the learning process. During the process, the image is analyzed to extract feature points and rated based on the number and distribution of the extracted feature points.

The star rating of a target image ranges between 1 and 5 stars. There is a possibility that a target image with 1 star won't recognize and track very well. For a better AR experience, it's always safe to use an image with as many stars possible. An image that has not enough feature points may fail to be properly processed and rated by the learning engine. In this case, you should replace it with another.

  • If an image has blurring boundary between lines and surfaces, it is hard to extract feature points.

    E Image

    The image above was rated ★.

  • Feature points in an image should not be concentrated in a certain part.

    T Image

    The image above was rated ★.

  • If an image consists of repetitive patterns, similar feature points will repeat as well. The learning engine will have difficulty in distinguishing between them.

    G Image

    The image above failed to be processed.

  • An image that has sufficient feature points evenly distributed will be rated high and detect well.

    L Image

    The image above was rated ★★★★★.

When an image fails to be properly processed, there won't be any learning data ready for you to download.

We recommend that you use a highly-rated image as a target. It will detect and track well, which is one of the most important conditions for an AR experience.

Target Download

Select the target to be used in augmented reality software and download it. Select the SDK version and OS you want to use and download it.

It takes a few minutes. Because the server's learning machine that matches the selected SDK version need some time to learn. It will be stored in the default download folder that you set in your browser.
