Hi! I’m trying to do invisible occluder in my Handheld AR project. When I disable “Render in main pass” and enable “Render in Depth pass” I expect the cube become transparent and it will occlude the red objects but it only works when I enable Custom depth too, more over it’s only works in editor, when i hit play button it stop working.How should I hide object but still use it as occluder for oter actors?
Ok, I solved this problem myself. There is ARCoreOcclusionMaterial in GoogleARCore Content that helps occlude objects in vitrtual space. But it needs some improvements to work clear, you can’t just put this material to the object and have fun.
First you need to add Custon sRGB to linear convrersion in this material to fit camera image with unreal tonemapped image. Code of this node (or just node) you can find in GoogleARCorePassthroughCameraMaterial.
After this you have to update parameters from material parameter collection. In ARCoreUtils function library you can find UpdateARCoreOcclusionMaterialInstance that you need to call every frame. Just for test I did it in my Static mesh actor.
Hey, Can you share a small demo of this project through Git or something else, I am not able to understand this segment at all about How to use Google Passthrough Camera Mat and how does that tie-in with ARcore functionality
Any help is appreciated.
