The AR on Sky asset in STYLY Studio is a sky segmentation asset which replaces the sky with an AR scene.
Using mainly 3D models, you can make giant objects appear between buildings, or recreate a scene from your favorite anime or tokusatsu film.
Using mainly illustrations and graphic art, you can create a unique sky of your own.
We will show you how to create, distribute, and experience these AR scenes that appear only in the sky!

How to use the AR on Sky Asset

Now, let’s place the assets in STYLY Studio.
When creating an AR scene for the sky, we recommend assets that are 30m or larger on the X and Z-axis, 5m or larger on the Y-axis, and assets with some kind of animation.
Changing the sky to an illustration or image
Place AR on Sky in your scene from Asset Selector > Function.
From the Asset Selector, go to My Uploads > Image, and upload the image of your choice.
Select Sphere Screen.
Click on the Settings Icon for the Sphere Screen and select Add modifier.
Select [Animation] Rotate.
If you enter “rotate” in the search bar, it should come up at the top.
We have successfully rotated the illustration of the sky.
Points to note when creating AR on Sky Asset
Do not place a Skybox in your scene
When using AR on Sky Asset, do not place a Skybox in the same scene. That applies to all Skyboxes in the Environment asset page.
If you place a Skybox in a scene, the scene will automatically switch to VR mode and you will not be able to see the environment in AR.
