    Hi! So this is my usecase..

    I have a unity template that used AR Foundation and I want to migrate that template that already has assigned the AR Session Origin and AR Camera to Mars Session.

    I'm super new in Mars so any help will be super appreciated! Thanks!

    MARS will work with any existing AR Foundation session in your scene and you should be able to use MARS and AR Foundation side by side in you project while you migrate things. Add a MARS Session component to your AR Session Origin and a MARS Camera to your AR Camera and you should have both working together.

    Also, with MARS 1.2 (which released this week) we now expose some of MARS's simulation system to AR Foundation in the Editor. You can turn this on in Project Settings -> XR Plug-in Management. Then when you enter play mode in the editor you can navigate in MARS's simulation in the game view (right mouse button and WASD keys) and the AR Foundation managers will get data from the simulation. You'll also notice that if your scene doesn't have a MARS Session then a temporary one will be added to the AR Session Origin.


    This is a very new feature and there are some limitations still but we'd love to hear any feedback you have, and please feel free to ask more questions.
