    Hi, I was just curious if it is possible to test image tracking in editor, without building, using a PC webcam? I ust this functionality a lot with Vuforia, etc., but haven't been able to figure it out on MARS.

    Thanks!

    Hello @god2001bc

    Currently It is not supported to do image tracking from a webcam stream in the editor; To test image markers for the time being without the need to make a build, the easiest way is to create a synthetic image marker and test it out in the simulation view. To do this; check the "Simulating Image Markers" section here: https://docs.unity3d.com/Packages/com.unity.mars@1.0/manual/Markers.html

    Got it, thank you! Will be on the lookout for this feature if it gets added, even though the simulator works for most situations. Keep up the great work.
