Come on team! You can do it! You have a lot of folks waiting who will be super happy for your efforts
And don't sit on it too long. It's definitely going to shake things up when the WebXR Hit Test API is standardized across the browser ecosystems. Seems surprisingly performant on Chrome 81 at the moment on a mid range Android device. And honestly, I will be thankful to easily pop open the standard browser debugging tools and just have stuff working as expected.
I have feeling all efforts go to MARS..
Visionary and inspiring. But somehow, I am left with a troubled feeling as I watch the ships take off towards Mars. Are the problems here on Earth being addressed?
This weekend, I wanted to experiment with AR Foundation on iOS and was surprised to find how the ease of development has regressed since last time I worked with handheld AR, perhaps three years ago. At that time the Unity remote app worked great for testing interaction before building. Also, coming straight from an Oculus Quest project, where Oculus Link makes development a pure joy, returning to iOS is just not fun.
I'll put my AR experiments on ice and wait for better days.
Yes, i guess we all feel you.
At the moment it is definitely easier, faster and more comfortable to use native ARCore (in Unity) than AR Foundation. Also just went back to it last week after waiting for ARFoundation for a few months now. And have to say, it is still same (or even better) quality than 3 years ago. ;-)
So, you could also maybe give it a try instead of completely putting your experiments on ice.
Can't tell about iOS, but you also could maybe try to use pure ARKit instead.
The pure ARKit integration for Unity was developed and maintained by Unity themselves. They deprecated this plugin since June 2019 in favor of maintaining only ARFoundation, and thus it only supports ARKit 2.0 features.
@mfuad Your latest update on this thread was on 5 december 2019. Do you have more details about the remoting tool for AR Foundation or is it completely pushed to the MARS release. A status update would be appreciated!
A piece of information in this post !
"It's being worked on but we don't have any dates or announcements to share around that currently."
Well, at least it is still being worked on.
Will ar remote continue to develop?
I downloaded unity2020.2 and still don't have it...
Unity bought a AR / VR tech company. https://techcrunch.com/2020/05/07/unity-snaps-up-vancouver-based-studio-building-ar-vr-tech/
Not sure if Unity will benefit from the hardware but the software and new personnel might help ARfoundation.
