  • UnityARCameraManager/ARKit equivalent for Android Hello, I'm developing an AR application in Unity and for iOS I'm utilizing ARKit and the UnityARKitPlugin. It has a very helpful script called UnityARCameraManager, I use this to position 3d models relative to the user's location so it's overlaying the actual building in the camera image (uses Gravity and Heading). I'd like to have this application work on Android as well and need to know if there is an ARCore equivalent for the UnityARCameraManager.

  • Stereo Display for Cardboard I'm creating a VR application and I wanted it to have two viewing options, the 360 view and the Cardboard VR. I'm quite lost with the XR Settings and I can't make the 360 view. I've read many threads and all they've been saying is about the stereo display. Can someone enlighten me?
  • Failed to world lock serialization failed Hi I've been stuck trying to export anchor from the hololens, but it keeps throwing the "Failed to world lock serialization failed". I've tried to remove nearby holograms and remove all holograms (hololens goes back to say 'finding your spaces' )

  • Making AR – Can’t find dataset Hello, so I am currently teaching myself how to make AR and I am following this tutorial;


    5:13 in, he mentions to select dataset and I'm not getting this message up. I have done everything he has. I have used a different image but the image has targets on it. I have uploaded a screenshot of what It shows.

    My PC is all up to date in both Unity and Vuforia but I just keep coming across issues when attempting AR.

    Any help would be much appreciated !

  • No controllers while running steamVR sample scene with Samsung Odyssey So I would like to fiddle around with unity and see how it goes with using a bow in the steam VR interaction sample scene, headset gets detected and I am able to look around but controllers don't appear, I did import the MR sdk and from the top menu chose to apply settings, am I missing something?
  • Using muti-target to track a large table I'm building an app to add handheld augmentation to a large architectural model (about 2m wide x 1m deep by 0.5m tall, or about the size of a pool table).

    There's no place to put an image target that's visible from all angles from the model, so my plan is to use a multi-target with 6 images spaced around the perimeter of the table at known offsets. My questions are:
    • Is this a plan that's likely to work?
      • If not, what would be the best way to track this, since

  • Which method should be used to achieve the most accurate world tracking experience with ARKit? My company is developing an Augmented Reality app for a client, using ARKit, and they want the best world tracking experience on iOS. We have told them that this is not an exact science and that small variations are perfectly normal, but they want us to do anything possible to minimize errors, drifts and movements from holograms.

    We have tested some ARHitTestResult examples on Unity and some others that use ARImageAnchor, but we can't decide on which is the best. It seems that...

  • //NEED HELP// Vive Controller as animation trigger Hi guys,

    I'm an absolute beginner in C# so this is probably a very basic problem to you.
    What I'm trying to achieve is to use a Vive's trigger button to start an animation. I tried this little script
    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System.Collections;
    2. using UnityEngine;
    3.  
    4. public class animController : MonoBehaviour {
    5.  
    6.     public Animator anim;
    7.  
    8.  
    9.     void Start () {
    10.  
    11.         anim = GetComponent<Animator>();
    12.  
    13.     }
    14.    
    15.     void Update () {
    16.  
    17.         if (Input.GetKeyDown("a"))
    18.         {...
