Interaction is one of the key components of any interesting AR experience. And while interaction can be as simple as moving from one step to the next, a more advanced interaction would be to let your users trigger audio, animations, video or object visibility whenever they want to.

And this is exactly what you can do with our expanded action system.

You can let users tap any button, 3D object or image to start one of the following actions:

  • change scene โ†’

  • play sound ๐ŸŽถ

  • play animation โ–ถ๏ธ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ€โžก๏ธ

  • pause animation โธ๏ธ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ€โžก๏ธ

  • play video โ–ถ๏ธ ๐ŸŽฅ

  • pause video โธ๏ธ ๐ŸŽฅ

  • show an object ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ

  • hide an object ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  • go to url ๐ŸŒ

  • take screenshot ๐Ÿ“ธ

To set an action on an object, you simply add an action to the object in the left hand menu and then choose which action to use from the drop down menu.

In the case of playing and pausing a video, you need to add two buttons and set them to play and pause respectively:

You can use as many actions as you want in a single scene, depending on your needs and how much control you want to give your users.
