arkit+vuforia doesn't work

November 19, 2017 - 1:24am #1

iOS11.1 + Unity2017.1 + Vuforia6.2 + ARKit1.0.11

i have 3 scenes:

a. main scene: two button to switch arkit and vuforia;

b. vuforia scene(can go back to a)

c. arkit scene(can go back to a)

(y: the camera works fine. n:the camera doesn't work.)

1. a -> b(y) -> a -> c(y) -> a -> c(y) -> a -> b(y) -> a -> c(n)

2. a -> c(y) -> a -> b(y) -> a -> c(n)

the camera doesn't work after c->b->c, i've no idea whether vuforia or arkit cause the problem.

any one help, thanks!

Ground Plane is now available in Vuforia 7, which utilizes ARKit. You can get the native SDK here: https://developer.vuforia.com/downloads/sdk or within Unity 2017.3.0f3

You can find documentation on this feature here https://library.vuforia.com/features/environments/ground-plane-guide.html and samples will be available soon.

You have to add dontdestroyonload script to your ARCamera and script similar to MainCamera added to ARKit camera. This script will disable vuforia when runing ARKitl. as I wrote here https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/unity/vuforia-arcamera-dontdestoryonload
You can just put vuforiabehaviour script to ARKit camera and then disable it in inspector

RYAN2015: Looks like you are trying the same thing as I am.

How are you switching between the two?

I'm using a gamemanager, that turns Vuforia off in a empty gameobject and switches ARKit on.

The PROBLEM is when building it to Xcode it crashes every time I try the app. (when I do the switch).

I expect you managed to fix this? Can you tell me how you managed this?

(I only need to switch from Vuforia to ARKit after I get the coordinates from the marker in Vuforia) 


I know that there will be a future version of unity and Vuforia that will fix this. But I need this before Friday so can't wait for the release :p 

Hoop you can help! thanks

Hello Ryan2015,

There is a known incompatibility when trying to use Vuforia with ARKit. Vuforia will begin utilizing ARKit in a future version. For more information and to stay up to date on updates check out this link: https://developer.vuforia.com/

Additionally, if you're using Vuforia 6.2.10, it is recommended to use Unity 5.6 as Unity 2017.1 is not a supported version.
