Change Release Notes

This release is quite minor but recommended...



- New camera tracking feature for AR Parrot Drone, will track UP and Down. Setting can be configured in the Camera Control Configuration screen under Movement Tracking.

- Microphone Export To Sound Board updated to use new Audio Compression from last version

- When loading projects with EZ-Bit v1, the prompt now provides a method to Skip Syncing EZ-Bits


Why would you want to skip syncing ez-bits?

Well, if you load a project with EZ-Bit v1 files, the new v2 isn't compatible. This means you will have to Skip EZ-Bit Syncing because the old v1 files will not be found. Of course, you will no longer have a 3D Designed EZ-Robot in your project. Sorry, but you will have to rebuilt the 3D design.

Good news, if your robot is built off one of our existing robots (JD, Six, Roli) then you can simply MERGE the template.

How do you merge projects?

Easy, of course:) Under the File menu is the Merge option. Selecting this will merge a project into the project that has already been opened. Follow these instructions to get the latest 3D Designed JD/Roli/Six into your existing EZ-Bit v1 project.

Before we begin, load the EZ-Bit Library Manager and Sync all available EZ-Bits.

1) Load your project that contains the EZ-Bit v1 files

2) A prompt will ask to sync. Press the SKIP button and agree to the warning

3) Now your project will load, but the 3D Robot will be empty. Let's merge the template into your project. Press the MERGE button

4) Select the Examples -> Templates folder

5) Select the project that you wish to merge (JD/SIX/Roli)

6) A dialog will inquire if you wish to import the 3D Model. Answer YES

7) Another dialog will prompt asking what controls to also import. Deselect all options, because you are only importing the 3D model.

8) Press OK

Voila - now you have the latest EZ-Bit 3D Model loaded.

Sorry I didn't see this post.

I do not feel you are following the instructions correctly. Please follow the instructions in exact order. It appears you are not loading your original V1 project first. You must load the V1 project first. If the v1 project is not loaded first, you will receive an error. Load the v1 project and select SKIP for ezbits. The v1 project must be loaded before the template.

1) Load your project that contains the EZ-Bit v1 files

2) A prompt will ask to sync. Press the SKIP button and agree to the warning

3) Now your project will load, but the 3D Robot will be empty. Let's merge the template into your project. Press the MERGE button

4) Select the Examples folder by pressing the examples button

5) Select the template project that you wish to merge (JD/SIX/Roli)

6) A dialog will inquire if you wish to import the 3D Model. Answer YES

7) Another dialog will prompt asking what controls to also import. Deselect all options, because you are only importing the 3D model.

8) Press OK

I can't replicate that error. It all works as DJ stated when I've tried.

Oh, I see JBEBay... The v1 project that you are loading does not include any EZ-Bits. So, you are attempting to load an EZ-Bit project into a non EZ-Bit project.

If you feel that you are in error, please post your project and i'll take a look:)

DJ Sures, sorry about that. I uninstalled ARC, and removed all directories under Documents.

Re download and install and sync library. Stop trying to merge anything. Got it working as to what I had.

Thanks for taking the time to look into it for me. We both learn something.
