Trigger by shaking the phone

  • Hi eL Be, 

    Unfortunately we do not currently have the ability to apply a Shake Trigger, but I will add it to our Feature Requests.

  • You could track device rotation and show an icon to shake it by tilting the phone left & right (so the user will do it right). That would allow you to check for the rotation value changing a lot rapidly, thus letting you detect the shaking. Also could theoretically check world pos vs screen pos movement but not sure of that method.

  • Hey Brandon, that sounds like a good solution. One question still remains: is there a possibility that I could lose my solid world track when I start to "rotate" my phone left and right?

    I am asking, beacause I´d like to trigger an animation that´s augmented over a building which had to be tracked before the animation is triggered...
