    Is it possible to use ARKit and Vuforia simultaneously? All I need is stereoscopic vision parented to an ARKit camera. I do not need any VR location because this is done with ARkit. I've tried hacking GoogleVR but was unsuccessful.

    Again I have a scene working built on ARKit, just need stereoscopic vision for a headset.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, I don't think this use case will work. To my knowledge, device OS' do not allow for simultaneous access to the camera by different processes.

    This has been indirectly proven by devs who have tried to swap between an ARKit session and a Vuforia session, only to get a black screen because either process owns the camera handle.

    Thanks,
