    I am preparing a proposal for a client and I thought I better check something before I promise I can deliver it. Can you capture a photo or short video of an AR Foundation experience to save to a device to share with others. If so is it a difficult process? Is it documented somewhere? It must be able to be done somehow as Unity themselves shows a video to demonstrate AR Foundation on their website but I don't see it prominently mentioned anywhere on the forums or the Unity site.

    Thank you in advance for your help. :)

    This sounds like a general Unity question and not specific to ARFoundation. iOS has a built-in mechanism to capture a screen recording. There are many free and paid apps for Android which do this. If you want to capture a Unity app programmatically (which I think is what you want to do), there are 3rd party solutions on the Asset Store. A quick Google search turned up this one, for example.
