Image markers in AR


#1

In the book, I saw in the chapter about Anchors & planes in AR that it was possible to anchor virtual content to images, but I can’t find any reference about it in AR Foundation. Is it a feature not available yet ? What would be other ways to do this in Unity ?

@robinmasque Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

Yes, currently the Unity XR team is hard at work trying to get some of the advanced features like image tracking into ARFoundation. In the meantime, you can use those features using the standalone plugins for ARKit and ARCore, except that code will not be cross platform at the moment.

References to the standalone plugins:
ARKit: https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technologies/unity-arkit-plugin/overview
ARCore: https://developers.google.com/ar/develop/unity/quickstart-android

Here’s a comparison of the features of ARFoundation vs these standalone plugins:
