Hi there Thunkers!
I thunk – I mean think – that there is no way to do this but some of you are pretty clever about figuring out ways to do stuff in Thunkable.
I have a student who wants to make a drawing app where you can overlay an outline over a live video to help with tracing artwork. The drawing itself would be done on paper so she’s not using the Canvas for example.
In short, she wants to turn on a phone’s camera and see the live view in the app while also displaying an image over it.
I can stack components in the new drag-and-drop interface so I can put an image component on top of a video component. The problem is that once you start video recording or photo capture, the whole screen is filled – I think because it uses the native photo app on my iPhone. It’s not until the video is recorded or photo is taken that I can then see the image on top of it in the app.
Any ideas for workarounds?
