I'm overlaying images on the cameraView and based on the user input of room width & height. The images are displaying proportionally to width & height ratio. but i need to overlay the images based on the distance. If 5feet means, then i need to display the images closer, if it's 8ft means i need to overlay images littlebit far. I referred these links https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11913355/scaling-ar-pictures-based-on-the-distance-from-the-camera , https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13190932/how-to-find-out-focal-length-of-camera-in-ios-and-what-is-the-sensor-height?lq=1. But the result size is too small.

int imagesize_height = (152.4*199)/0.33;

 int imagesize_width = (152.4*350)/0.33;

distance in cm = 152.4 and ipadMini camera focal length is 3.3mm = 0.33cm, image width is 350 & height is 199

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a programming question that should be on Stack Overflow (but it's too old to be migrated) – null Apr 15 '16 at 18:53
  • Focal length reported by a camera may not be accurate enough for resizing an overlay, even if it appears to have enough precision. – Mark Ransom Jan 23 '18 at 18:38

Depending on the INT_MAX your variables may overflow significantly. INT_MAX being 32768 is not uncommon at all.

int imagesize_height = (152.4*199)/0.33=91901,818181818181818181818181818

int imagesize_width = (152.4*350)/0.33=161636,36363636363636363636363636

  • 1. int on iOS devices is 4 bytes, so INT_MAX is 2147483647. 2. Although one always needs to be aware of overflow, that's not what the OP is asking about here. – Caleb Apr 16 '16 at 7:41
  • @caleb: 2) "But the result size is too small." - OP asks about the reason of something being too small. This could be because of overflow. I wonder about why this question is still here, it belong to SO obviously. – Euri Pinhollow Apr 16 '16 at 7:49
