    Hi,
    The TrackingState need to be in :

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. foreach (ARTrackedImage updatedImage in eventArgs.updated)
    3.         {
    4.             if(updatedImage.trackingState == UnityEngine.XR.ARSubsystems.TrackingState.Tracking)
    5.             {
    6.                 // The image is track!
    7.             }
    8.             else if(updatedImage.trackingState == UnityEngine.XR.ARSubsystems.TrackingState.Limited)
    9.             {
    10.                // Tracking is limited, so the image isn't track but the device try to keep position and rotation with sensor. put destroy function here
    11.             }
    12.             else
    13.             {
    14.                 // Tracking is none, but if I remember it's never called (put destroy function here)
    15.             }
    16.         }
    17.  
    I hope that help you!

    Best,
    Alexis

    Hey fabisfab,

    I think you just forgot to use the same variable to access the
    .trackingstate
    in the other if()-statements above. Instead of
    trackedObject.trackingState
    try
    updatedImage.trackingState
    . If you look closely at the code @Alexis-Dev postet, you can see, that he used
    updatedImage
    as well.
    And for the Debug.Log() you just need to set a semicolon at the end of the line.

    Another valuable tip for anyone having trouble with the images not being detected: check if the filename-extension for the images you load in your ReferenceImageLibrary is ".jpg"! not .JPG, not .jepg, only .jpg.

    Hope this helps :)

    The eventArgs.removed isn't call when the image isn't track. It's used for an other purpose.

    Te destroy your prefab when your image isn't track change the functions : UpdateLimitedGameObject and UpdateNoneGameObject by DestroyGameObject

    You need to instantiate it in UpdateTrackingGameObject.

    Check if it's instantiate, if yes: Update the position and rotation of the prefab, if not: Instantiate it.

    hum, I think there a problem.

    Do you Enable and Disable the prefab on tracking/untracking? Or do you Instantiate and Destroy on tracking/untracking?

    Ok,

    I'm little confuse because I'm not using multitracking like that actually...

    Go back to:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. foreach (ARTrackedImage updatedImage in eventArgs.updated)
    2.         {
    3.             if(updatedImage.trackingState == UnityEngine.XR.ARSubsystems.TrackingState.Tracking)
    4.             {
    5.                 UpdateTrackingGameObject(updatedImage);
    6.             }
    7.             else if(updatedImage.trackingState == UnityEngine.XR.ARSubsystems.TrackingState.Limited)
    8.             {
    9.                UpdateLimitedGameObject(updatedImage);
    10.             }
    11.             else
    12.             {
    13.                 UpdateNoneGameObject(updatedImage);
    14.             }
    15.         }
    On the prefabs will appear/disappear, add this component and check Destroy On Removal:

    The tracking-state refers to the 'accuracy' of the object that is being tracked:
    Tracking: the device is actively tracking this object and updating it
    Limited: the device is 'having a hard time' finding/tracking this object. Accuracy might be low, or updates might occur less frequently or not at all
    None: the object was found and added, but is not (currently) being updated.

    With regards to added/updated/removed:
    Added: This object was newly discovered
    Updated: The object 'changed'. This can be because it moved, because its location (Pose) became 'more accurate', because its trackingstate changed, etc.
    Removed: The object was 'destroyed'. This can happen if for example the pool of objects is full and old objects are being recycled. The implementation is provider-specific.

    The definitions above can be applied to each Trackable in ARFoundation. For implementation-specific details you should check the documentation for the underlying XR Plugin (e.g. ARCore, ARKit)

    Hello sir! I tried to upload my AR Foundation app on Google Play but only flagship phones can search it, but your application can search using my mid-range phone. Any tips? Thanks

    I don't know why that is happening. I suggest asking here -> https://github.com/Unity-Technologies/arfoundation-samples/issues

    Hi,

    The multiImageTracker works find for me on Android, Using Destroy On removal on my prefab, everything is smooth.
    I've got a problem on iOS, exaclty same setting, but the prefab I display on the marker is flickering, looks like it's loosing tracking all the time. Anyone got this problem or a solution to it ?

    Hi!
    I have a problem related to image tracking. When I get too close to the Prefab that is being tracked, even if I still see the image with my phone camera, I completely lose track. Any light on this?
