#MakeUsVisible 2.0


At Scavengar, it is our mission to breathe life into urban environments, fill them with hidden stories and meaningful interactions which are rooted in our physical surroundings. Today, we’d like to take you with us behind-the-scenes, give you more context on our latest purpose project, and share with you our most recent collaboration.

What you see is what you get… right?!


Anyone who has experienced artworks in augmented reality may have wondered why they usually don't look as hyper-realistic as they tend to do in 3D renderings. The lack of realism is, of course, due to the fact that hyperrealistic renderings are graphically more complex and require immense computational power for realistic material and light calculations. That's why materials play an integral role in creating the illusion of realism in augmented reality.

How to optimize 3D files for AR


The complexity of your 3D models in AR determines how many frames of your experience can be displayed and how smoothly everything runs. Complexity contributors are high resolution textures, high polygon counts and complex scenes that cause many draw calls for different objects. All this is also reflected in the file size, which is a good indication of the complexity of a model.

How to use 3D Models in Augmented Reality?


Augmented Reality enhances the real world the way we know it and it offers almost limitless possibilities for creators to express themselves freely. The true beauty that lies herein is releasing us creators from the constraints of physics, to create unique immersive experiences that can tell stories in convincing ways, addressing multiple senses at once.

Introducing AR QuickTips


For over two years, we’ve been talking to amazing creators out there (yep, addressing exactly you!). We did this with one simple goal – trying to understand what you as an AR creator need to build the most immersive Augmented Reality experiences possible.
That's why we created a series of video tutorials covering the topics 3D creation, AR workflows as well as crafting and distributing experiences on our platform.
