  • 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.         {...

  • Have you guys started to move to SteamVR 2.x? I see alot of problems moving to the new SDK atleast for us that have a pretty solid and complex solution in place.

  • Making Canvas buttons ‘modal’ ie trapping touch events Hi
    Anyone doing ARkit development with Canvas buttons?
    I haven't been able to make them 'modal', ie trap touch events so they don't get propagated to your actual 3D world.

  • How to scale in AR as shown in the Unite AR demo using ‘Camera Tricks’? I've watched the Unite video and read the article https://blogs.unity3d.com/2017/11/16/dealing-with-scale-in-ar/

    From what I've seen I'm still not even close to being sure about how this is done. I've looked in the forums and there don't seem to be any solutions to what I'm trying to do. I'm doing a physics simulation so its really important to use this scaling method.

    The process would go:
    Open app > Find plane > Place an a level prefab on the plane > Scale...
