World Understanding

  • 🆕 The environment properties are now set by the chosen anchor type.

    • This means in Edit mode, we don't use the physical environment for all anchors anymore.
    • For instance, a scene with a Simple Anchor won't have its elements collide with the physical environment; a Horizontal Surface Anchor will have its elements collide with that surface; and only the elements of a Spatial Anchor will collide with the physical environment.
    • To help the user get a sense of the precise position of the elements in their physical world, the occlusion is seamlessly enabled during element manipulation. This is especially useful for those using Minsar Studio on mobile AR devices. Rest assured, this won't be enabled in Preview and View modes.
  • Improved Spatial Anchors stability and performance

  • Improved Anchors collision settings

  • Improved Environment-Based Rendering

  • Improved Metallic support for objects with metallic materials

  • Improved Image Tracking on Magic Leap

User Interface & Experience

  • 🆕 Uploading Gizmo & Processing Gizmo

    • No more "Some assets are missing" during Publishing or Exporting! Minsar Studio now indicates assets that are being uploaded back to the servers with some visual indicators, on the top right of the Menu as well as on the elements themselves.
  • 🆕 Loading Gizmo now collides with the anchor's environment

    • It's now easier to place elements that are being loaded, using the collision on the anchor's environment.
  • 🆕 New Font

    • We have updated the font of the UI. Spatial Computing is a brave new world and we feel a more welcoming, "warmer" font is important. We hope you'll like it!
  • 🆕 New Sign In

    • We have streamlined Account Creation and Account Pairing, on both mobile AR and Immersive devices.
  • 🆕 Introducing Options Panels: a way to edit Elements, Assets, Triggers, Actions or Anchors properties from within the main Menu.

    • This new UI will improve the creator's workflow by avoiding many unnecessary UI transitions.
    • The Transform Action is the first to benefit from this new UI, and we expect the transition to be completed by mid-November.
  • Improved Tutorials UI and UX

Input & Manipulation

  • Improved multi-touch gestures

    • To improve manipulation precision, multi-touch gestures are now exclusive: scale and rotate or scale and translate can't be applied in one gesture anymore.
  • Improved Physics-based Manipulation
