Glossary of CamTrackAR icons

Building Track

Updating

Tracking Active

Means that CamTrackAR has enough data to create a good track. You’re ready to go!

Not Tracking

Means that there is not enough information in the scene for CamTrackAR to track. Move your iPhone around to allow CamTrackAR to capture more of the scene.

Reset Track

Gives you the option to clear the existing data and restart your track. Tapping the Tracking Status at any time will bring up this option.

Set Floor Plane

Add Anchor Point

Allows you to position anchor points in your scene. Move the iPhone to position the green floor grid in place, and press this Add Anchor Point icon to drop an anchor point in your 3D scene. The more anchor points you position in the world, the better your track will be.

Please note that this is restricted to one positioning point in the free version of CamTrackAR. Upgrade for the option to anchor multiple positioning points.

Remove Anchor Point

Allows you to remove anchor points already positioned in your scene. Move the green floor grid over an already-positioned anchor point, and the aforementioned Add Anchor Point icon will turn red to Remove Anchor Point. Press this icon while red to remove the point from the world.
