Then go back to the manager in the 'WebAR Design' section, at the bottom in the 'Marker recognition' box and paste it.




Don't forget to save. 


5) Go back to the editor, import your 3D object into and begin your 360° bubble project

  • Place the 3D object so that it covers the entire marker as below : 



Place the different assets in the desired places in your 360° bubble

To position your video, for example, you will need to check the “vertical” box, resize it so that it is smaller than the size of the bubble and place it inside the bubble.
You will now have to activate the 3D mode at the top left of the editor, and zoom in to the maximum so as to enter the bubble.
At this point, you can easily adjust the position of your video so that it is in the desired location.
