0:05 – Let’s start by opening a haptic asset. Clicking on the open button here will let us choose a haptic image from the computer. I’ll upload this velvet texture.
0:14 – On my TanvasTouch-enabled screen, I can feel the texture with my finger, but I can also turn off the display and still feel it
0:23 – Turning the haptic display off makes sense when uploading a visual asset. Let’s pick the velvet visual to match the velvet texture. Now I can feel the haptic texture and see the visual image of the fabric.
0:32 – I can always turn on the haptic display and change it’s opacity to my liking.
0:42 – I can remove assets by clicking on the remove icon.
0:45 – Let’s upload a new image. This time I’ll choose a wooden texture.
0:53 – I’m keeping the haptic display on so I can see the texture.
0:57 – I have decided to edit the haptic image texture a bit.
1:02 – On my graphic software, I’ll add a different haptic feeling for the gaps
1:08 – And I’ll save it with the same file name
1:19 – Notice that the haptic asset has not changed, and when I move my finger on the screen, I feel the previous texture
1:25 – By clicking on the refresh button, the new haptic image will appear.
1:28 – Now I can feel the new texture.
1:31 – I can also check the “Auto Refresh” box
1:36 – And when updating the image, let’s for example revert the changes I did on the gaps
1:47 – The haptic image will automatically change. This of course is relevant for the visual asset as well.
1:56 – I can also feel my texture on full screen. This is helpful when designing app’s screens or when we want to feel the top and bottom edges.
2:06 – I can exit full screen by clicking this button or pressing the Escape key.
2:14 – Experimenting with haptic effects is easy with TanvasTouch Viewer
