    Hi all,

    Full disclosure; I'm an artist checking out the capabilities of AR to create immersive works, and my coding ability is very limited! I'm hoping one of you lovely people can help me.

    I'm having a look at Image Tracking, having gotten a few sample tests up and running. However, as appears to be the case with many people I'm getting a fair bit of object drifting. In my research I came across this on Google's ARCore Dev site:

    "If your image will never move from its initial position (for example, a poster affixed to a wall), you can attach a global anchor to the image to increase tracking stability."
    Does anyone know how I can achieve this? I am unable to find any suitable tutorial on blending Image Tracking with anchors or reference points.

    I'm using Unity 2020.2.0b with AR Foundation 4.1.1/ARCore.

    HUUUUUGE thank you in advance.

    Hey there, @Saphion ! AR Foundation doesn't support this specific case as described in the ARCore documentation referenced.
