2. What is involved in getting my AR?

Gather all your assets: Trigger files, Overlay, Videos, Website links, etc…
Go to our shop and buy your AR packet. Then you will get a confirmation to upload your asset files.

Your  AR “packet” can contain these files:

  • Required: - Trigger images (jpeg)
  • Choose one or several:
  • Artwork for customizing the app (png or jpeg)
  • Website links
  • Videos (either mp4, mpg or mov files or links to streaming http)
  • 3D models (3ds, obj, fbx)


All these items “packet” will create your AR app.  You will get an email telling you that your AR App is created and ready to use.  You will download and install your app on your smart device, point it to the “trigger” you uploaded. Then your AR experience will commence. The overalay(s) you  uploaded, will then appear!
