At the Global Developers Conference online, Apple officially unveiled the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. However, the company also had other topics to discuss. In this conference, RealityKit 2 added the Object Capture API. Through this API, developers can easily convert iPhone multimedia to convert AR-optimized 3D models. Users can shoot high-quality videos, and photo-realistic 3D models of real-world objects in minutes, and convert them into AR-optimized 3D models.
According to reports, there are currently more than Apple 1 billion AR-active devices. With the new Object Capture API in RealityKit 2, developers can also use better visual, audio, and animation control. They can create a more realistic and complex AR experience. An insider on the development of AR technology had this to say
“For a long time, the lack of AR content has always been a key constraint to the development of the entire AR industry. This time the launch of the Object Capture API function provides important technical support for the production of AR content. This is expected to accelerate the development of the AR industry”.
