Detailed Documentation

Properties

float FarDistance

The maximum distance from the camera (in meters) captured by this depth buffer. Depths farther out will be assigned this distance.

float NearDistance

The minimum distance from the camera (in meters) captured by this depth buffer. Depths closer in will be assigned this distance.

Methods

IDepthBuffer FitToViewport(int viewportWidth, int viewportHeight)

Fits the depth buffer to the given dimensions.

Note

The returned depth buffer will be rotated to match the screen orientation, if it has not been already.

Note

This method is deprecated and will be removed in a future update. Use DepthBufferProcessor’s CopyToAlignedTexture to get a texture fitted to the screen.

Parameters:

viewportWidth

Width of the viewport. In most cases this equals the screen resolution’s width.

viewportHeight

Height of the viewport. In most cases this equals the screen resolution’s height.

Returns:

A new buffer sized to the given viewport dimensions, and rotated to the screen rotation.

IDepthBuffer Interpolate(
    IARCamera arCamera,
    int viewportWidth,
    int viewportHeight,
    float backProjectionDistance = AwarenessParameters.DefaultBackProjectionDistance
)

Interpolate the depth buffer using the given camera and viewport information. Since the depth buffer served by an ARFrame was likely generated using a camera image from a previous frame, always interpolate the buffer in order to get the best depth estimation.

Note

This method is deprecated and will be removed in a future update. Use DepthBufferProcessor’s CopyToAlignedTexture to get a texture fitted to the screen.

Parameters:

arCamera

ARCamera with the pose to interpolate this buffer to.

viewportWidth

Width of the viewport. In most cases this equals to the rendering camera’s pixel width. This is used to calculate the new projection matrix.

viewportHeight

Height of the viewport. In most cases this equals to the rendering camera’s pixel height. This is used to calculate the new projection matrix.

backProjectionDistance

This value sets the normalized distance of the back-projection plane. Lower values result in depths more accurate for closer pixels, but pixels further away will move faster than they should. Use 0.5f if your subject in the scene is always closer than ~2 meters from the device, and use 1.0f if your subject is further away most of the time.

Returns:

A new IDepthBuffer with data interpolated using the camera and viewport inputs.

IDepthBuffer RotateToScreenOrientation()

Rotates the depth buffer so it is oriented to the screen.

Note

The raw buffer, not yet rotated to screen orientation, will be oriented the same as the device’s raw camera image. In most cases, gravity points to the right.

Note

This method is deprecated and will be removed in a future update. Use DepthBufferProcessor’s CopyToAlignedTexture to get a texture fitted to the screen.

Returns:

A new depth buffer rotated.
