This document demonstrates general usage of the Model Targets API, with code snippets for commonly-performed tasks. For a more general introduction to working with Model Targets, see the Model Targets Overview and the Model Targets API Overview.
Model Targets are tracked using the
ObjectTracker and therefore are used in a very similar way to Image Targets, VuMarks, Cylinder Targets, and Multi Targets. Unique to Model Targets is the Guide View, which defines an initialization pose and therefore requires an additional rendered overlay that guides the user to this pose.
A Model Target dataset can have either a single object with a single Guide View, or multiple objects and/or multiple Guide Views. If your Model Target dataset is of the latter type, you will need the help of a TargetFinder to start tracking a particular object and/or to switch between Guide Views based on what is visible in the camera.
