Screen Capture button using Javascript


I want to put a capturing button on my universal AR (WebAR) content.
I’m developing some a-frame contents.
Html2canvas can capture only html contents without AR view (it can’t capture AR experience).

Does anyone know how to put capturing button on the universal AR?
My content includes a video element.


I think the best way is 2D Photo Feature in Zapworks studio.
Can I put it in a universal AR content?


Hi @k_uchino!

I have responded directly to your support request, but for anybody else who may be interested in snapshotting/video recording capabilities for UAR, we have some amazing updates coming very soon!

We’re so excited to share new developments with you and we can’t wait to see what you come up with - make sure you keep an eye on the forum for more!



Hi Francesca,

Great! I’m really looking forward to it!



Sounds great! My clients ask me about recording on WebAR on a daily basis. Do you have an ETA on when this will be announced / available?


we use three.js and “toDataURL”, you must run the function right after “render”:

		    renderer.render(scene, camera);
		    	screenshot = renderer.domElement.toDataURL('image/jpeg',0.7);
		    	takeScreenshot = false;


Thanks, r.liechti

Unfortunately I use A-Frame. But I was able to solve the problem.
Eventually I’ll try using Three.js as well.
