A few months ago we announced the beta release of our brand new Studio Editor, Wikitude’s one-stop platform to create and manage augmented reality experiences in just a few clicks.
Now that the official release is just around the corner, we are excited to share updates about the launch of Studio Editor and give a sneak preview of some of the amazing upcoming features.
Whether you are working with the Wikitude SDK or with the Wikitude app, Editor expands the functionalities of the old Studio and enables developers and non-developers to create, manage and publish AR projects based on targets and objects, all in a single platform.
What’s new in Studio Editor?
Studio Editor is not just a pretty face. In addition to the fresh look, the platform has an even more intuitive navigation, allows full visualization of 3D models, offers integration with our Target Manager and many other features you will love:
- Object Targets – going beyond images, Studio Editor supports creation and management of AR experiences working with 3D objects (object targets).
- 3D model visualization – a major upgrade from our old Studio, now users are able to visualize 3D models in full shape and texture.
- Modern 3D user interface – see your target and augmentations from different angles, freely move and adjust augmentations’ properties.
- Quick-load of projects via QR-code – preview and test your projects in just one scan, using the QR code reader of your choice.
- Monitor and track projects – use Google Analytics to follow your project performance and create precise reports for your AR campaigns.
- Publish in the Wikitude App – users will have the opportunity to publish their projects in the Wikitude app in the future. Stay tuned for updates!
- Studio Editor Hosting – this option provides a place for you to store your AR project on a Wikitude server. This is a quick and easy way to store assets for the long term, and reference them from your own AR app or from the Wikitude app.
These are some of the highlights Studio Editor is bringing to new and old users of Wikitude’s AR content management platform.

If you are still working with the old Studio, here is everything you need to know about what’s happening in the next weeks.
What happens to projects in the old Wikitude Studio?
Studio Editor is scheduled to launch in February 2018, so it’s soon the time to say goodbye to our old Wikitude Studio! As soon as Studio Editor is launched, Wikitude Studio will no longer be accessible.
Customers with an active Studio subscription will have their projects automatically migrated to the new Studio Editor on 2018-01-29. To ensure projects keep running smoothly, AR experiences hosted in Wikitude Studio will be upgraded for compatibility with Studio Editor.
If you already migrated your project manually to Studio Editor or should you not want the automatic migration please notify Wikitude via the email firstname.lastname@example.org by latest 2018-01-15.
Please note old Studio projects which are not linked to an active Studio subscription will not be available on the Wikitude app after February 2018.
