ARki 8.5 update includes several new feature enhancements to help you create more immersive AR experiences.
Save and Share
This update contains major improvements to the way ARki saves your data on device and cloud. Please ensure that you have upgraded the app on all devices before sharing projects. Previous versions of the app will not open projects created with ARki 8.5 or newer.
New Shaders lets you add material properties to your models including transparency, metal, and AR occlusion.
Add transparent materials to your models with the new Glass shader. This shader includes reflection, HDRI and night time glow to achieve the most realistic transparent material.
Add metallic materials to your models with the new Metal shader.
AR Occlusion Shader
AR occlusion is a new shader which allows you to mask out parts of 3d model so that you can view the real-world objects accurately in AR. It can be used for environmental objects in the scene such as site buildings, or furniture. Note, for AR occlusion to work accurately, you must have a 3d model of the real-world object in the scene. In this example we used a 3dscan of the wooden site model to mask out using AR occlusion.
For real-time environment occlusions you can use the environment occlusion feature - on Lidar enabled devices only.
New colour wheel lets you save colour textures easily for creating options in your models
