  • Publication number: 20180131878
    Abstract: Systems, devices, media, and methods are presented for presentation of modified objects within a video stream. The systems and methods receive a selection at a user interface of a computing device and determine a modifier context based at least in part on the selection and a position within the user interface. The systems and methods identify at least one set of modifiers based on the modifier context. The systems and methods determine an order for the set of modifiers based on the modifier context and cause presentation of modifier icons for the set of modifiers within the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20160284123
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a system and methods are presented for generation and manipulation of three dimensional (3D) models. The system and methods cause presentation of an interface frame encompassing a field of view of an image capture device. The systems and methods detect an object of interest within the interface frame, generate a movement instruction with respect to the object of interest, and detect a first change in position and a second change in position of the object of interest. The systems and methods generate a 3D model of the object of interest based on the first change in position and the second change in position.

  • Publication number: 20180114365
    Abstract: Among other things, embodiments of the present disclosure improve the functionality of computer imaging software and systems by facilitating the manipulation of virtual content displayed in conjunction with images of real-world objects and environments. Embodiments of the present disclosure allow different virtual objects to be moved onto different physical surfaces, as well as manipulated in other ways.

  • Publication number: 20180197343
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure involve a system comprising a computer-readable storage medium storing at least one program, and a method for rendering three-dimensional virtual objects within real world environments. Virtual rendering of a three-dimensional virtual object can be altered appropriately as a user moves around the object in the real world, and the three-dimensional virtual object can exist similarly for multiple users. Virtual object rendering can be with respect to a reference surface in a real world environment, which reference surface can be selected by a user as part of the virtual object rendering process.

  • Publication number: 20180114364
    Abstract: A redundant tracking system comprising multiple redundant tracking sub-systems, enabling seamless transitions between such tracking sub-systems, provides a solution to this problem by merging multiple tracking approaches into a single tracking system. This system is able to combine tracking objects with six degrees of freedom (6DoF) and 3DoF through combining and transitioning between multiple tracking systems based on the availability of tracking indicia tracked by the tracking systems. Thus, as the indicia tracked by any one tracking system becomes unavailable, the redundant tracking system seamlessly switches between tracking in 6DoF and 3DoF thereby providing the user with an uninterrupted experience.
