    Even following the official manual doesn't work for me. I'm assuming ARFoundation is the latest way to do AR (I used to use vuforia way back), but I can't find an official tutorial on setting up and building a basic AR app with it. Like just a cube in AR for example. Everything I've tried I'm guessing is outdated because I keep getting errors building an empty project after just installing the packages, ARFoundation, ARCore, and ARKit.

    Where's the official latest documentation/tutorial/manual for AR in Unity?

    ARFoundation is the latest way to do handheld AR (ARCore and ARKit) in Unity. You can access it from the Package Manager (Window > Package Manager) in Unity. There's a link to the docs from there. That link also mentions the samples GitHub repo.

    This forum post might also help explain what's new and how to get started.

    There was a short-lived problem which made the samples repo private. That should be resolved now.

    Hi, I've got a problem in that when I try to build and run the "SimpleAR" scene example I get a flickering magenta screen. I'm definitely not the most technically savvy person, so I thought I'd start with the "Simple" example first. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I've been able to get other examples to work - a basic floating cube in the room, (Not from the ARFoundation Github though) so I believe that I understand the workflow, at least at a basic level.. Thanks, in advance!
