Vuforia AR + Google Cardboard - Black Screen

January 29, 2018 - 8:48am #1

Hello,

I have recently followed the instructions on getting google cardboard to work with the AR, however when I run the application on my phone or in unity, the camera is black, however when I point the camera at the target, the target object displays, and the background is still black...

 

The instructions talk about enabling a "See-through" option, which is non-existent. 

Both the VR and AR components are working perfectly, however the background is black and the camera background is not showing as intended.

 

VUFORIA VERSION: 7.0.36

GOOGLE VR: GVR SDK for Unity v1.120.0

 

Thank you for your time, I hope this problem can be resolved.

In Player Settings -> XR Settings add Vuforia to the Virtual Reality SDKs list and nothing else. Then in the Vuforia Configuration set Device Type and Viewer Config to "Phone + Viewer" and "Vuforia" respectively. You can then set the Viewer Type field to the appropriate viewer you plan to use. Our AR+VR sample project has this all set up if you'd like to take a look at that and compare it against your project.

Thanks,

Vuforia Support

Hello Strasza and thanks for the reply. Do you mind explain in details,I cannot find a single working demo for vuforia VR, I tried all the options including the vuforia VR as you suggested. Please advice the appropriate settings in SDK to use with vuforia in order to view the ar project in VR. Thank you very much

Cardboard support is being deprecated and has various known issues. Please use Vuforia VR in its place.

Thanks,

Did everything you mentioned and tried all possible options with Samsung s8 and s9 with the latest versions but still black screen. Can you show us a small sample of vuforia working with cardboard. Any tip will help as i lost hope that this might work from the first place. Regards

Hello, 

I had the same exact problem. I just solved it by adding "Vuforia", after "Cardboard" in the VR SDK's in XR in player settings.

In digital eyewear my settings are :

Device type : Phone + viewer

Viewer config: Vuforia

Viewer type: Cardboard v1 (Google)

Works like a charm now
