movie texture, setup for Unity, mobile app

June 9, 2015 - 12:25pm #1


I would like to migrate a mobile AR project from metaioSDK to Vuforia+Unity for iOS and Android. Is it possible to overlay and play a transparent or non-transparent movie texture on a trackable/ target? 

Reading the docs, I assume that Unity Pro is required and some 3rd party plugins like "mobile movie texture" or "Prime 31's Etc2" ... 

Is this correct and which plugin would you recommend? What is working well with vuforia 4.2.3 and Unity 4.6.6? 


Any hint is welcome, as I am new to Vuforia. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am having a similar problem. I have solved how to make a movie texture work with alpha, using a custom shader and a video like the attached pic.

Now, te big trouble is how to handle this into a mobile deployment! the movietexture class is not available to be used by mobile platform.

Have you figured out this problem?

Best regards,
