    I have had some success getting pointclouds from worldmap.pointcloud.points. However they have only been available on a few worldmaps (maybe 1 out of every 10), and are accessed after a worldmap has been localized. There might be some asynchronous loading happening in the background?

    one thing you can do is keep track of the anchorid of the user anchor you create because that will be restored along with the session. then you can have a database of user information associated with that id stored in some sort of serialized format e.g. JSON . (see https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/JSONSerialization.html)

    • In ARkit 2 update, Image anchor works good when it tracks the marker. But once the marker is lost the object remain on screen.
    • can we have mixture of Image Anchor(ARkit 1.5) + Image Anchor in ARkit 2 where marker is used to initialize 3D object and even if marker is not in view we can view it from different angles?

    Hi @jimmya,

    We're planning to launch an amazing AR app built in Unity, heavily utilizing the features in ARKit 2.0, for one of the worlds biggest brands alongside iOS 12 in about 2 weeks from now.

    There are two bugs in the current plugin that more or less completely breaks Environment Texturing for us:

    https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technol...ues/55/cubemap-in-arenvironmentprobeanchor-is

    https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technol...ues/63/environment-probe-reflections-make-all

    Any ETA for these bugs to be fixed?

    Hi,

    Anybody having an issue about ARkit memory?
    On every ARKit session, memory keeps increasing causing an application crash.
    In advance thank you.

    (Check with arkit 2 with ios 12 in any ios device)

    You are going to need to wait for IOS 12, ARKit 2.0 and Xcode 10 come out of beta before you can launch an app that uses ARKit 2.0. Currently there isn't a release date for any of those 3 (just a heads up)

    I am very new to Unity and to ARKit so I did the following tutorial to get me started: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/how...eality-app-using-arkit-and-unity-ba16515a32fa
    It worked perfectly good with Unity ARKit plugin. However trying the same tutorial with Unity ARKit 2.0 plugin I do not get the cam feed at all. All I am getting is the 'earth & sky' scene from Unity (I am also not getting a permission request to use the cam on the phone)
    Using latest versions of Unity, XCode 10 beta, and IOS 12. iPhone is 6S+ and deployment on the project and XCode is set to IOS 12.
    Any help?

    that time frame is around the Apple Launch event (12th) when the new iOS usually goes out so he might not be far off...

    Thanks @jimmya - there's currently UnityARSessionNativeInterface.IsARKit_1_5_Supported but I've just pulled and can't see any accessor for IsARKit2_0_Supported? Is it possible to add please? Thanks! :)

    finally got it to work. A small note in your docs can save somebody else days of frustration. When you start a new project you have 'sample scene.' When you then go to 'build settings' you will notice that the only asset listed is that default 'sample scene' What you need to do is -
    • Click the button 'add open scene'
    • Tick the box with the Unity ARKit 2.0
    • Remove the tick from the box with the default scene <--- important

    Hi All,
    I used ShadowPlaneMaterial in previous ARKit and it works fine. But now in 2.0 the shadow is gone when I build on my iPhone6s. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks for your time

    Can not get ObjectAnchor test scene to work in Unity. The console reports:

    UnityARCameraManager.Start () (at Assets/arkit2.0_funStuff-master/Assets/UnityARKitPlugin/Plugins/iOS/UnityARKit/Helpers/UnityARCameraManager.cs:60)

    I´ve scanned my own .arobject, replaced the existing one as well. tried on a dozen versions of Unity from 2017.4 to 2018.7, but gives the same error in the console. If I remove the Detection object in the Unity AR Camera Manager script, the error goes away, and it builds just fine for iOS 12 (with Xcode Beta 10), camera works, but of course no detection of objects. If I try to build with the Detection Object in place in the script, the app just freezes on first frame.

    All the other test scenes in ARKit 2.0 work just fine in editor and on build. Something says me that is has something to do with the StreamingAssets folder and the Contents.json file.

    Anyone experiencing the same issues?

    Are you using the plugin project fully or are you missing some files? Try with the latest arkit2.0_beta branch - I've put in a new arobject (coke can) which should work out of the box. If you want to use your own object, put the scanned .arobject in the same folder as the cokecan.arobject and follow the instructions in https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technol.../src/arkit2.0_beta/docs/WhatsNewInARKit2_0.md

    By default, in build settings there should not be any scene ticked. Then whenever you build, it will only build the currently open scene.

    Ok, so I finally managed to get the code downloaded for ARkit 2.0 repository, and it contains the coke can, so it is the right one. I then dragged the whole root folder into my asset folder, opened the ObjectAnchor scene....and the same error message:

    DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path "/Users/johnymagne/VV2 test/Assets/StreamingAssets/ARReferenceObjects/ExampleObjectsResourceGroup.arresourcegroup/Contents.json".

    The StreamingAssets folder is not present in the Project hierarchy, is it supposed to be there in the first place, or is it generated by the scripts?

    I´m on Unity 2018.1.9f1, Macbook Pro 2018, i7, 16GB Ram. Mac OS 10.13.6

    Any suggestions?

    Are you trying to run this from the Editor? That will not work.

    Suggestion is to try first to just open the plugin project as a unity project and build from there to device. The UnityARBuildPostprocessor editor script creates the folders and files needed in the XCode project that is output.

    Ehum, it did work out. Thanks! Silly me.

    As I´m here asking questions, I might also just as these:
    - I'm trying to detect a round object (ball), but it is not very good at it, do the
    object targets need to have more rigid structure to be tracked well?
    - I´d like to track several marvel like moving objects simultaneously, but the image anchors seems
    not to move with the one object I've tried this far if moved (well, they move slow, bit its not usable).

    Would it be possible at all with ARKIT 2, tracking several moving marble like objects, pinning a
    anchor on each?

    Best

    Object detection uses detection of feature points in a certain configuration - some materials (e.g reflective or untextured) don't generate feature points easily (or if you are in low light). Object detection currently only recognized the object, but does not track it. If you compare with image detection, Image Anchors were recognition only in ARKit 1.5, and in ARKit 2.0 Image Anchors are tracked.

    UnityObjectScanner crash: Thread 1: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=1, address=0x0) while trying to get the box to in right position. Unity 2017.4.4f1. iOS 12, public beta 12. Xcode: Version 10.0 beta 6 (10L232m). iPad pro model MQDT2KN/A.

    Started the scene on iPad and clicked create object and then started to put the box in position. After a while of being frustrated about getting the box to go down I got this error. Happened on two different runs.

    Hi Esoinila,

    I have been seeing this issue as well, on and off. And I have been trying to figure out what is going on.

    If you would be able to try something and let me know if it helps temporarily, try:
    1. Uninstalling the app entirely from the iOS device.
    2. Deleting the entire Xcode project directory for the app.
    3. Re-building the Xcode project from Unity.
    4. And then, building and installing the Xcode project to the device.
    In many cases after following these steps, the issue goes away for a while, though it does eventually return.

    I am curious if the temporary work-around works for you as well.


    Todd

    Nice!
    Looks like it's fixed. Scanned two objects and test detected those without problems (other than getting the box into correct position). This test was at least twice as long compared to the time it took to crash the scene yesterday on two consecutive runs. (And I didn't have time to change anything or uninstall the app etc. remedies, just append-build-and-run.)

    Hi I was trying the UnityARWorldMap Serialized example.I ran on the Ipad,I placed the cube on a position with a touch and clicked save button.After Closing the app then i clicked load button and tracked the same place nothing came.Why the cube was not present at the same place.Also when I touch the save button the cube position changes to the one behind the save button .Have look at this link
    .The touch goes over the UI button even though I have added the following code to the UnityARHitTestExample script.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine.EventSystems;
    2.  
    3. if (touch.phase == TouchPhase.Began || touch.phase == TouchPhase.Moved && !EventSystem.current.IsPointerOverGameObject(touch.fingerId))
    4.                 {
    5.                     var screenPosition = Camera.main.ScreenToViewportPoint(touch.position);
    6.                     ARPoint point = new ARPoint {
    7.                         x = screenPosition.x,
    8.                         y = screenPosition.y
    9.                     };

    Hi,
    Is there a way to get en update if an Image Anchor which is not tracked anymore? I want my objects to disappear when my marker gets lost.

    Thanks

    Hi, I’m creating a prototype to demo several AR overlay options using the same object (just for efficiency sake).

    I'm trying to do it this way:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. public void disableMe()
    2. {
    3.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARObjectAnchorAddedEvent -= AddObjectAnchor;
    4.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARObjectAnchorUpdatedEvent -= UpdateObjectAnchor;
    5.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARImageAnchorRemovedEvent -= RemoveObjectAnchor;
    6.  this.enabled = false;
    7. }
    8.  
    9. public void enableMe ()
    10. {
    11.  this.enabled = true;
    12.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARObjectAnchorAddedEvent += AddObjectAnchor;
    13.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARObjectAnchorUpdatedEvent += UpdateObjectAnchor;
    14.  UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARImageAnchorRemovedEvent += RemoveObjectAnchor;
    15.  Debug.Log("Script was enabled");
    16. }
    These are performed in GenerateObjectAnchor.cs and calling them with buttons for different game objects with different prefabs for "Prefab to Generate" while having the same 'Reference object asset'.

    This doesn't seem to have an expected outcome and I'd like to be able to disable/enable object tracking when object not in focus (just as the post above with image tracking) but also I'm getting a crash after trying to see a second overlay variation. So basically 1st one works, then I click the button to try and see how the 2nd overlay would look like and it all goes wild :)

    Thanks!

    [edit] looking through arkit documentation I'm wondering if this is implemented somewhere: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/arkit/arsession/2865607-remove
    or am I too deep in the woods here? :)

    Hello! @todds_unity @jimmya
    I tested the UnityARObjectAnchor scene, everything works cool, but after the phone goes to sleep and wakes up, the tracking stops working, the method (in the class GenerateObjectAnchor.cs) "UpdateObjectAnchor" is no longer called.

    When I tested UnityARImageAnchor, in the same situation (when the phone wakes up after sleep) the tracking works fine.

    The only strange thing that I noticed was a sequence of calls (I attach a screenshot)

    Why tracking cannot work with ObjectAnchor after waking up the phone?

    Xcode - Version 10.1 beta (10O23u)
    IOS - 12.0 (16A366)
    Devices - iPhone 7 / iPad Pro 2nd generation
    Branch - default
    Commit - "Merged in remove-deprecated-prefabutility-api-usage (pull request #43)"

    Hello, I'm having trouble removing Object Anchors when I reset my AR Session.

    I have an app that uses Image Anchors with a reset tracking button that calls :

    Code (CSharp):
    1.    
    2. ARKitWorldTrackingSessionConfiguration sessionConfig = new ARKitWorldTrackingSessionConfiguration(UnityARAlignment.UnityARAlignmentGravity, UnityARPlaneDetection.None, true, true, true, UnityAREnvironmentTexturing.UnityAREnvironmentTexturingNone, 1, default(System.IntPtr), null, null, null);
    3.  
    4.         if (imgset != null)
    5.             sessionConfig.referenceImagesGroupName = imgset.resourceGroupName;
    6.  
    7.         if (objset != null)
    8.         {
    9.             sessionConfig.referenceObjectsGroupName = "";  //lets not read from XCode asset catalog right now
    10.             sessionConfig.dynamicReferenceObjectsPtr = UnityARSessionNativeInterface.GetARSessionNativeInterface().CreateNativeReferenceObjectsSet(objset.LoadReferenceObjectsInSet());
    11.         }
    12.  
    13. UnityARSessionNativeInterface.GetARSessionNativeInterface().RunWithConfigAndOptions(sessionConfig, UnityARSessionRunOption.ARSessionRunOptionRemoveExistingAnchors | UnityARSessionRunOption.ARSessionRunOptionResetTracking);
    14.  
    This effectively resets the tracking and removes all my existing Image Anchored GameObjects.

    However, I recently added Object Anchors and they're GameObjects remain after resetting the session.

    I am using the default GenerateImageAnchor and GenerateObjectAnchor scripts that come with the UnityARKitPlugin from the git repo.

    The difference between object anchors and image anchors currently is that image anchors are tracked while object anchors are just recognized, so updates may or may not work reliably.

    I'm back - this time about bundling a pre-made worldmap into a build.

    I have a saved .worldmap file I produced in a previous session using a different ARKit 2 app.

    I would like to include that .worldmap file in the build of a new ARKit 2 app so that when the app launches, it just loads that .worldmap file, and then tries to relocalize itself according to that file.

    Seems it's not possible to include a .worldmap file directly in the build???

    Right now the workaround is to build the app, then access the File Sharing for the device in iTunes, and to manually add that .worldmap file into the new app's Documents folder.

    Is there a way to just include this in the original build, without having to manually add the .worldmap file in iTunes?

    (If it were another kind of asset, I could just put the file in a Resources folder and use Resources.Load, but Resources wouldn't know what to do with a .worldmap file. I'm stumped.)

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You can place it in https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/StreamingAssets.html

    Hello, two things:
    1) In Build: XCode is saying [General] No resource group with name "[my object set name]" found.
    2) In Editor: why does the Camera Manager reference the StreamingAssets build path? Can't it gracefully do something other than throwing an error every time the Camera Manager's session config is accessed?
    eg. Wondering why it is fine with image anchors.
    Thanks for the info.

    It is normal that the cube is not appearing again. Only anchors will be saved inside the .worldmap file, so when you create the cube you should attach it to an anchor:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. UnityARSessionNativeInterface.GetARSessionNativeInterface().AddUserAnchorFromGameObject(GameObject gameObj);
    )

    First save the anchor identifier string when the anchor gets created (streaming asset folder to keep it local or on a backend to implement server functionalities):

    Code (CSharp):
    1.     void Awake()
    2.     {
    3.         UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARUserAnchorAddedEvent += AddedUserAnchor;
    4.     }
    5.  
    6.     public void AddedUserAnchor(ARUserAnchor anchor)
    7.     {
    8.         saveAnchorIdentifierSomewhere(anchor.identifier);
    9.     }


    When you will load the arkit worldmap the next session you will simply spawn the cube where the anchors appears:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.     void Awake()
    2.     {
    3.         UnityARSessionNativeInterface.ARUserAnchorAddedEvent += AddedUserAnchor;
    4.     }
    5.  
    6.     public void AddedUserAnchor(ARUserAnchor anchor)
    7.     {
    8.         if (anchor.identifier == "ID you are looking for")
    9.         {
    10.             var cube = GameObject.CreatePrimitive(PrimitiveType.Cube);
    11.             cube.transform.position = UnityARMatrixOps.GetPosition(anchor.transform);
    12.         }
    13.     }
    At least this how I did it, cheers

    Hi all, @jimmya @todds_unity
    I am testing the SharedSpheres app. But I got a few error messages about UnityEngine.Network after importing the project:

    I am new to Unity. Any help on this would be appreciated!

    Could you please share some tutorial . How you Achieved this. Because for me i can't able to store the 3d model in AR session after Kill the application Even after i have instantiate the 3d model.

    Hi,
    Is there any roadmap or estimation about when will ARWorldMap be integrated into the package version of the plugin, and (consequently?) in ARFoundation?
    Thanks.

    It took me a while to test some changes I noticed in the 20 September default branch of the plugin - specifically, a note which stated it was now possible to access the points inside the worldmap itself.

    I've finally gotten round to that and it works very well - I'm super-pleased with this and would like to thank everyone developing this plugin for making this possible.

    It makes getting the real pointclouds out of ARKit viable - which is a good thing since they can differ from the pointclouds generated by/on the camera (for the camera pointclouds, see my post, quoted above).

    So, now you can access the worldmap's pointCloud.points array without insta-crash. This means you don't have to copy points every frame from the camera's pointcloud to a Vector3 List in order to write out a text file of coordinates which you can then use in other software for the purposes of aligning virtual content to the worldmap of a specific space (does any of that make sense?). You can just write out the points array directly. Which is a good thing for many reasons.

    Thank you, again!

    Do you mind sharing the project you figured this out with? I'm having trouble figuring out how to load MyFirstWorldMap.worldmap back into Unity to add persistent content to.

    we were testing this on concept purpose. we stored the prefab positions and rotation(if necessary) in json file and stored along with worldmap. and when we load world map we instantiate that prefabs from json read and give them position and rotations.

    Hi superman, I bought iPad 2018 and can't use ARKitRemote, so the bug is from Unity or ARKitPlugin? Or is my fatal? My remote app on ipad show image in a flash and then exit, close...
