How to Bring a Page to Life

Follow instructions in the Color Alive app to enter Play Mode. (The view from the device camera will be on screen)


 Colour Alive- How to Scan A Page



For best results, hold your device parallel to the coloring page. Make sure you can see the whole page in your view screen. In a few moments, the app will recognize the page. You will see a “4D” button floating above the page and another at the bottom of the screen.




If you don’t see the 4D buttons , move your device closer or further away from the page and let the camera re-focus each time. Or try moving to a well-lit area to help the camera see the details on the page. If the 4D button s still do not appear, check to make sure your internet connection is working.

Tap either “4D” button. A blue bar will appear at the top of the screen as the character comes to life. (The first time you scan each page, data downloads to your device and may take longer depending on your internet connection speed.)



Once the page comes alive, you can move away from the page and view your device to see the character from any angle. Tap the character to animate it or pinch/zoom to resize it. Tap and drag to move it around, even off of the coloring page. Quick movements may cause the character to disappear. If this happens, bring the page into your view screen and tap the 4D button again.
