  • How to configure rotation and placement of a hologram Apologies if something similar has been asked and answered before, I looked through the forums, but I am not exactly sure how to search for it. Basically I need to position a hologram in the world, let's say a cube, when I know where the corners are supposed to be. Is there a way to do this in code? For example, let's say I can position 3 spheres in the world location where I expect the 3 corners of my cube hologram to be. How do I then change the position/scale/rotation of the cube to match...

  • ARSession fails compilation for simulator. The simulator is particularly useful for testing apps out on the new iPhone XS/XS Plus without getting ahold of a physical device. I'm getting 5 compilation errors in Xcode when attempting to build to Simulator. Any chance this could get fixed? @jimmya

    Code (CSharp):
    1. Unknown type name 'CVMetalTextureCacheRef'; did you mean 'CVOpenGLESTextureCacheRef'?

    Note: I don't expect ARKit to run in...

  • Have Vuforia Scan Video Feed From A Custom Source So I'm working on this project where I stream in video footage from a webcam onto a texture to show on the screen. So I was curious can I have that feed pass through Vuforia's api to do image recognition?
  • Scaling AR content Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with scaling AR content in order to be able to work with it in 'larger' scale in Unity. Since at the moment I have to downscale all my content considerably. I have looked at the double-camera solution, but can't seem to get the origin to work properly with ARKit 2.0.

    Thanks!

  • ARKit 2 and MultiPeer Connectivity to share anchors I'm trying to share an anchor between two devices.
    All the examples show that we can share the WorldMap, using the serialized format of the ARWorldMap, but I don't understand how I can get the anchors from the ARWorldMap to render these anchors on the other device.

    I use the MultiPeer Connectivity feature. I am able to share the ARWorldMap.
    Reading the Apple's documentation, the ARSession...

  • Real world distance between device camera and detected plane Hello!

    Is there any way to get the real world distance between camera and found plane in Vuforia with Ground Plane?

    The issue is that we need to scale our model to be precisely as real world object it represents. It was trivial for ImageTargets but now we want to implement this feature for GroundPlane.

    I've tested a GroundPlane feature on iPad and S7 and there is a big difference between objects sizes placed on plane surface.

    Thanks.

  • DeviceTracker loses orientation when app loses focus (goes into background) Hi guys.

    I'm using the extended tracking with the device tracker to position objects in my application. It works fine so long as my mobile app doesn't go into background. When I come back into the app and I'm facing my device into another direction (e.g. I rotated myself by 90°), the device tracker seems to take the new facing for all my objects and moves them around (i.e. they were moved by 90° around in the world).

    I'd expect that the device tracker would recognize where north is and...
