  • Publication number: 20220269398
    Abstract: In some implementations, a method includes: while presenting an object via the display device, determining an operation set associated with the object that includes a plurality of input-response pairings, wherein each input-response pairing includes an input type and an associated response; obtaining, via the one or more input devices, a user input directed to the object; and, in response to detecting the user input: mapping the user input to an input-response pairing within the operation set associated with the object; and performing an operation on the object based on the user input and the input-response pairing.

  • Patent number: 11393164
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method of generating a 3D object is performed by a device including a processor, non-transitory memory, and one or more input devices. The method includes receiving, via one or more input devices, a user input selecting a file representing two-dimensional (2D) content and having a file type. The method includes receiving, via the one or more input devices, a user input requesting generation of a three-dimensional (3D) object based on the file. The method includes generating, based on the file type, a 3D object representing the 2D content.

  • Publication number: 20220130089
    Abstract: According to various embodiments, a method of presenting a computer-generated reality (CGR) file includes receiving user inputs to present a CGR scene including one or more CGR objects. The CGR scene is associated with an anchor. The anchor is selected via a user input directed to an anchor selection affordance of a user interface. The method further includes capturing an image of a physical environment, and determining that a portion of the image corresponds to the anchor. Based on determining that the portion of the image corresponds to the anchor, the method includes displaying the CGR scene at a location of the display corresponding to the portion of the image corresponding to the anchor.

  • Patent number: 11250604
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method of presenting a computer-generated reality (CGR) file includes receiving a user input to present a CGR scene including one or more CGR objects, wherein the CGR scene is associated with a first anchor and a second anchor. The method includes capturing an image of a physical environment and determining that the image of the physical environment lacks a portion corresponding to the first anchor. The method includes detecting a portion of the image of the physical environment corresponding to the second anchor. The method includes, in response to determining that image of the physical environment lacks a portion corresponding to the first anchor and detecting a portion of the image of the physical environment corresponding to the second anchor, displaying the CGR scene at a location of the display corresponding to the second anchor.
