FAQ

Why sometimes image disappear?

Try to keep Hiro marker in visible area. Even if only part of marker is not visible tracking will not work.

Why do I need Marker?

You need marker to connect somewhere art in virtual space. For example ARKit and ARCore will not help. They are using camera to recognize environments. In our case blank paper doesn’t have any features to be recognized. But most important thing is that when you are starting drawing, you change recognized environment, that makes them loosing tracking. So marker is good alternative to connect art not on area that you are working on
