Vuforia Model Target Generator Release Notes

Vuforia Model Target Generator v8.3.8

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Windows

  • The Model Target Generator (MTG) has been updated and improved so that it now supports all types of Model Target databases.
  • The Home Screen interface has been greatly improved to separate processing of individual Model Targets and training sets separately.
  • Guide Views can be easily added using generators for 2, 4, and 6 views. A special type of Guide View added to prepare a model for creating Advanced Model Target 360 databases.
  • The model attributes have been consolidated in a separate tab in the Guide View Editor.
  • Training can be started in two different flavors to create Advanced Model Target and Advanced Model Target 360 databases.
  • The MTG now shows separate quotas for target generation and training sessions. Please see the pricing page for allowances.
  • Several minor UX improvements have been added to refresh the interface.
  • The MTG now remembers the user's developer credentials so that they don't have to be entered on start. Returning to the MTG during a training session will normally not require the user to re-enter their credentials.
  • Adapted the field-of-view for the model preview when "HoloLens" is selected to better match the HoloLens field of view at run-time.
  • GuideViews can now be updated using the 'pencil'-icon on a specific GuideView by modifying the camera and hitting 'Save' to store them.
  • Fixed an issue in the MTG where GUID collisions may have occurred in .unitypackage files.
  • Fixed an issue in the MTG that prevented glTF 2.0 models from being imported correctly.
  • Fixed an issue causing the 3D view to flip during operation of the transformation manipulators while editing a Model Target Extent.
  • The MTG window header no longer shows the last project name after returning to the project list.
  • Fixed several model import issues.

 

Known Issues

   

Windows

  • Add at least one detection view before creating a dataset to avoid error in generated target (not applicable for 360 degree)
  • The 'Last Modified' date for a Model Target might display different values in the Model Targets list and on the Databases tab.
  • Failed training can be caused by an invalid distance value entry.
  • Accidentally scaling the extent of a viewing range to negative values can lead to failed training. Take care to not scale the extent dimensions beyond zero when using the Extent Editor in the MTG.
  • Running Model Target Generator on a virtual machine is not supported.
  • Model Target Generator does not support network drives not mapped to a local drive letter.

Vuforia Model Target Generator v8.1.8

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Windows

  • Fixed a crash in the Model Target Generator when the login server cannot be reached.
  • Fixed an issue in the Model Target Generator where the multiple detection view wizard generated unpredictable results.
  • Fixed an issue where the Model Target Generator throws an exception while generating a dataset on a previously existing project.
  • The Model Target Generator now warns if models require too much run-time memory on a mobile device.
  • The automated set-up of multiple Guide Views now correctly uses the object's bounding-box center as rotation origin.
  • The 'distance' indicator now correctly displays the distance between camera position and the object's bounding-box-center in the Model Target Generator.
  • The Model Target Generator now prevents dataset creation for models with unsupported textures.

 

Known Issues

   

Windows

  • The 'Last Modified' date for a Model Target might display different values in the Model Targets list and on the Databases tab.
  • Running Model Target Generator on a virtual machine is not supported.
  • Model Target Generator does not support network drives not mapped to a local drive letter.

Vuforia Model Target Generator v8.0.10

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Windows

  • Added a new feature to train Model Target Databases containing multiple views and/or multiple objects with automatic recognition. Refer to the documentation Trained Model Target Datasets on how to use these databases.
  • Model Targets generated with previous versions of the Model Target Generator (MTG) remain compatible with Vuforia Engine 8.0 as single Model Targets. You can load previous Model Target Projects into the new version of MTG to combine them into one Trained Dataset. Once opened, projects will be upgraded and may become incompatible with previous versions of the MTG.
  • The Model Target Generator now supports the addition of multiple Guide Views for one Model Target.
  • The Model Target Generator now supports automatic Guide View set-up for training and multi-view scenarios with pre-configured camera poses for common use-cases.
  • Fixed an issue in the MTG where it would fail when paths to externally sourced files contained '&'
