Creating and Managing Multi Targets
Preparing and Designing Multi Targets
Multi Targets are created in two steps. Firstly, the design and prepare your images for each side of the Multi Target fulfilling both the matching dimensions and the ratings of a good Multi Target. For more information on designing Multi Targets, please refer to Recommendations for Designing Multi Targets. and Best Practices for Designing and Developing Image-Based Targets.
See also the guide Image Targets Optimization Techniques for tips and tricks to improve images for better AR quality experiences.
Creating and Multi Targets
The second step is to create the Multi Target through the Vuforia Target Manager. When a target is added to a database, you can select and create a Cuboid. This is an empty Multi Target which allows you to quickly create a cube or box and define its dimensions, height, width, and length. Specify the dimensions of the Cuboid and database according to your printed physical version and input the dimensions in preferably meters. Once the Cuboid is created, you can select and open it, and upload the images of each of the six sides of the cuboid which also will evaluate the star rating of your images. For a complete guide on creating Multi Targets and device databases, please visit How to Work with Device Databases.
As an alternative, you can define the Cuboid arrangement in the config.xml file of target's dataset or at runtime. See How to Modify a Multi Target Using its Config XML File for more information. Or add the images to your Multi Targets at runtime.
