Harvie and the Magic Museum
ABOUT THE PROJECT
For Rolling Picture, we prepared a mobile application with the characters of the film Harvie and the Magic Museum
The application was developed in the closed beta version of the new iOS 11 before ARKit was officially launched
The most important thing in the development of the Harvie app was ARKit’s ability to accurately recognize horizontal surfaces along with tracking and positioning objects on small reference points. ARKit uses Visual Inertial Odometry technology, which blends camera sensor data with basic motion data. The device then recognizes movement with high accuracy without the need for further calibration.
Since Harvie is all about elaborate visuals, it was crucial to light the scenes in the application. ARKit can use the camera sensor to analyze the overall lighting in the scene and apply the right ratio to illuminate the virtual objects.
