You need to use C# script, where the class extends the MonoBehaviour class of Unity;

you could call that code from the Start() method of your MonoBehaviour script, for example.

You cannot focus "more and more" (i.e. you cannot "zoom"), as this is not a supported feature.

When you use FOCUS_MODE_TRIGGERAUTO, you are telling the system to have "one shot" of automatic focus adjustment; the camera focus will be adjusted to try to reach an ideal focus for the current view (although this may be more or less accurate depending on the specific device).

Other possiblities are "FOCUS_MODE_CONTINUOUS_AUTO" which constantly tries to keep/adjust the focus to an optimal level (so that you don't need to trigger that explicitly), but this is not supported on all devices.

The remaining options are for fixed focus modes.

HI AlessandroB,


You Get It !


This is what i want, thx for your reply.

But, can we control the focus level? um i mean, when i tap the screen, it focus a bit only!

i want to focus more and more ( or may be "zoom"  can be explana better ). 



I have test all the CameraDevice.FocusMode, but i really cant get the different. XD


BTW, Thx Very Much!

Hi, you can trigger an auto-focus event when you touch the screen, as shown in the ImageTargets sample,

see the ImageTargetsMenu.cs script attached to the ARCamera, and see in particular this code:

private void HandleSingleTap()
        mWaitingForSecondTap = false;
        if (mMenuOpen)
            mMenuOpen = false;
            // trigger focus once
            if (CameraDevice.Instance.SetFocusMode(CameraDevice.FocusMode.FOCUS_MODE_TRIGGERAUTO))
                mFocusMode = CameraDevice.FocusMode.FOCUS_MODE_TRIGGERAUTO;
                mAutoFocusText = AUTOFOCUS_ON;
