This disclosure describes techniques that enable a user to start in an augmented reality (AR) environment (where virtual objects can be observed in their physical surroundings) and move to a virtual reality (VR) environment (where virtual objects alone can be examined from various perspectives in detail or from a distance). The user can make the reverse VR-to-AR journey as well. The AR↔VR transitioning and the examination of objects from various perspectives is made possible by smooth transformations of scale and of rotation between the coordinates of the world (e.g., the scene) and the object.
