Target Designer is a Test Creation application, that makes creating and modifying target files quick and easy. These printed targets are essential in the testing of Camera Modules (Image Sensors). Target materials can vary from reflective paper stock for use in front lighting systems or transparent materials for use in backlit systems. Many measurement types can be derived from a single target image. These target files then can be printed locally from a Web Browser or sent to an external print service for high resolution prints. Target Designer performs positioning and scaling of target objects with ease and accuracy. Scaling of objects and the whole target is determined by entering a few camera module specifications and test system parameters into Target Designer.
This page edits the top level target parameters that sets the size and scale of the target. You always start with a blank target or you can open an existing target file. If the conditions or the camera specifications change you can simply adjust these parameters here and all of the objects drawn in the target will automatically be scaled. This page displays the target file in a web browser window so you can view the scaled target. There are zoom controls so you inspect objects at many zoom factors. The actual target size is shown above the web browser window. The Parameter Bar (to the right) contains controls and parameters for each page or sub-page functions. The Parameter Bar is also collapsible to hide out of view.
This page displays and manages the target objects list items, by adding, removing, re-ordering, duplicating, and re-positioning them. As you re-position items there is a "FOV Position Map" that shows a preview of where the object will be drawn. This tools has an "Align to" function that allows an object align to an axis to make positioning easier.
This page edits the target object by modifying its object parameters, or selecting a different object from the "Object List". A preview window is shown so you can view your changes, and you can enable the positioning attributes to see how its fits in the target window, or disable to view in the center of the target.
Overlays consist of basic shapes, lines, rectangles, and circles. Overlays can be useful in aligning objects or just understanding the target area. Overlays can be disabled or enabled when viewing inside of Target Chart, and are not exported to the SVG file for printing.
The Export Window allows you to export 1, 2, or 4 up targets to a single SVG canvas for test systems that have multiple test cells. You can adjust the spacing of the targets by percentage (+/-) to set the correct view for each test cell in your test system. Export to a SVG file for printing using a printing service for a high quality print. You can also export to a PNG file for proofing.
