  • How do I cast shadows in ARCore? Hello there,

    I can't find a way to cast shadows in ARCore, is there some solution to this? I tried with planes and shadow shader that I use in Vuforia, but it does not work with ARCore.
  • Looking for the best tool for my needs (AR with streamed video). Hi guys,

    I know there is a large variety of tools that implement AR with Unity and I am looking for advice on which of those tools will best meet my needs.

    Here's what I require:

    1. Being able to use a video stream from a server as my input, rather than the camera of my device.

    2. Strong and accurate SLAM capabilities (Not requiring image recognition of a predefined image).

    3. Ability to integrate the use of GPS and compass data to improve accuracy, as well as being able to receive said...

  • Calculating time till photons Hi,
    I'm trying to calculate the time that is going to pass until the rendered image is displayed by the VR display (aka time till photons) in Unity's OnPreRender() event on an Oculus GO. Sadly the OVRPlugin provides no method to calculate this.

    I think this shouldn't be to hard to do as the display is showing the image in a fixed interval (= the display refresh rate), if we measure how much time passed since the display showed the last image it should be possible to estimate when it will...

  • Best practice for scaling placed objects with new Ground Plane markerless tracking What's the best way to deal with placed model scale in Vuforia? Simply scaling the model down is not really an option due to breaking Unity physics and particles.

    I'm trying to transition a project to Vuforia Markerless Tracking / Ground Plane that used the ARInterface scale methods mentioned here (currently working fine with ARKit) so that things like physics and particles work at real world scale but placed model...

  • ARCore: Can AugmentedImage with tracking status Stopped be re-used? Once augmented image gets status "Stopped", it can't be re-used for tracking, even if it's scanned again. Is there a way to fix this? If so, how? I couldn't find any API for that.
  • Keep ARKit FeaturePoints’ particles In the PointCloudParticleExample, I am trying to get the feature points to last longer than just the current frame.

    It seems like changing the ParticleSystem values isn't doing anything to the result. Is that because the lifetime parameter is not connected into the example script? If so what is the line of code that I would need to add to get the particles to persist fora set amount of time?

    Or is it because the particles are only updated per frame? Are they deleted thereafter or is it...

  • Is there a SteamVR controller button mapping cheat sheet? Hi all... I'm trying to use SteamVR for both Vive and Oculus. I'm just ramping up and trying to figure out what the button mapping is for both controller families. I've seen various bits of information on the internet but nothing that is specific to what I'm looking for.

    I'm just looking for a mapping something like here https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/OpenVRControllers.html

  • Using SpatialPerception to recognize a 3D Mesh, HoloLens Hi, I am new to Unity and HoloLens and I am wondering if it is possible to have the HoloLens recognize where it is and display accordingly within an app. My app involves walking around and tapping on objects.

  • Issue with Oculus integration (v 1.26.1 and 1.27.0) in Unity 2018.1.6/2018.2 Hi,
    Is there a known compatibility issue with the latest version of the Oculus plugin and Unity?
    When I create a new project in Unity 2018.1.6 or 2018.2 and download the Oculus integration package from the asset store (v 1.26.1 or 1.27.0), the editor won't open anymore after closing the project. However, if I paste the content of the Oculus integration package v 1.25.0 (copied from an older project), it works fine in both Unity 2018.1.6 or 2018.2.
    Is there anyone else experiencing this...
