Vuforia Engine on Mac M1

Topic solved

Hi everyone,

 

I'm currently starting out with Unity and Vuforia on my Macbook Air (M1 Sillicon). It unfortunately doesn't show my camera in play mode. I've already changed the webcam profiles, which did not fix the issue. I think the problem occurs due to Vuforia not working on M1, or at least, the folders don't include the ARM architecture (see error below). Does anyone have any experience with running Vuforia on an Apple M1 device?

Kind regards,

 

Joris

Hey both,

 

Yesterday we updated the forums to include a "Community Feedback" group. This is great feedback for the new "Devices & Hardware" category: https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/community-feedback/devices-and-hardware

I suggest creating your own post, and the workaround, to make us more aware of the issue. I do know that R&D is looking into supporting the new Apple Silicon processors.

Thanks!

I think what pscheper meant is running the Intel x86 version of Unity Editor on your Apple Silicon Mac using Rosetta, do NOT use the 3.0Beta version of the Unity Hub which launches the Apple Silicon Editor automatically if it's installed.

Just got my M1 Max 16inch Macbook Pro today, and tried Vuforia on Unity first. Using the Intel Editor, everything worked, but very slow, slower than my 2019 Intel Core i9 Macbook Pro.

@pscheper, we would love to see Apple Silicon support in Vuforia as soon as possible, Unity development on native Apple Silicon is a much more enjoyable experience on Mac. please kindly forward this message to the development team and project management.

As I said down below, Vuforia Engine does not support native Mac ARM, yet.

The only way to use Vuforia Engine with native Mac ARM is to run the Unity Editor in emulator mode.

How do we do that?

use the Unity Editor for Intel CPUs in emulator mode.

I could not find an example online.

Could you provide examples or images. 

 

Thanks

Hey there,

 

Vuforia Engine does not support native Mac ARM, yet. Therefor you should use the Unity Editor for Intel CPUs in emulator mode.
