Basics

There are two call sequences: the Animated QR code sequence and the Standard QR code sequence.

Animated Sequence

To generate an animated QR code, the API call sequence is:

/new Initiate QR code creation with optional parameters
/order/#/progress Repeat progress check until animation is completed
/order/#/<mp4File> Retrieve the mp4 animation file

Some animations take a few seconds to create, while others take many minutes. This sequence supports immediate API responses and informing clients of progress without hanging or ‘202 in progress` return codes.

Standard Sequence

To generate a standard QR code, the API call sequence is:

/new Initiate creation with desired parameters, receive png image response

Standard QR code creation time is less than a second, so this sequence supports direct return of requested content.
