Summoner: AR Art Print

Summoner by Dunaway Smith

Summoner: AR Art Print – We all have the power to change our lives. It’s up to us to recognize that power and do something with it.


PROCESS: I drew the illustration on my iPad in Procreate, then used Adobe Photoshop‘s auto-exporter to create individual PNGs. From there, I imported those assets into Adobe After Effects where I animated them. I then brought those animations in Adobe Aero where I created the interactive augmented reality experience.

EXPERIENCE:  The first act of the AR experience will continue until the participant (that’s you) interacts with certain elements, like the snake. Once those elements are activated the entire piece will change tones and shift into Act 2. 

HOW IT WORKS: The art print will come with a QR code sticker. (Many people apply it to the back of the picture frame for easy access.) When you scan the QR code with your iOS device, it will launched Adobe Aero and will ask you to scan your physical environment for flat planes, like the floor or a table top. Once you select a flat surface, the AR experience will begin. 

IMPORTANT: Currently, this AR experience is only available for iOS DEVICES! It uses Adobe Aero and requires a late-model (2018+) iOS device. To find out if your device is supported, check the bottom of this page.
