In situations where the scanning process is interrupted by notifications, pop-ups or accidentally pressing the home button, it can still be resumed by reopening the app and pointing the camera to an already scanned area. When resuming from a paused state, the app will take a few seconds to re-align the mesh to the room.
Make sure, while resuming, you point at an already scanned area. Pointing at an unscanned area will likely cause the scan to misalign and fail to resume. If the re-alignment fails after 5 seconds, a message will appear to inform you that the scanning failed due to tracking failure, and request that you restart the scanning process.
- When you consider the scan complete, press the Stop Button.
- if it turns out that the scan was unsuccessful or interrupted, you can press the Stop Button and then press Cancel, however, the data will be lost. You will not be reducing your Area Target generation allowance by canceling.
- If the scan was successful, you may press Generate. the Vuforia Area Target Creator App will then utilize the device’s processing power and generate an Area Target Database in the folder /AreaTargetData/ and reduce your remaining quota by one.
NOTE: This can only be executed while your device has internet access.
A progress bar and remaining processing time will appear. When completed, a set of dataset files (.xml and .dat), a GLB mesh, and project Unity package .unitypackage will be ready for testing and/or extraction.
