    What a powerful video and a general great overview fo the inner workings of AR/VR. Thank you for putting this together. @ 26:06, how are the metallic values used for anti-aliasing? Is this an anti-aliasing technique or is it just to manage real-time reading of an object (metal to nonmetal transition)?

    AR with a hand-held device is super awkward and cumbersome. You need AR glasses to really take advantage of the concept.

    Why not just use Unity?

    Does Sceneform only work with 3d assets, or can we use the anchoring tool for 2d images in the scene? (i.e to scale and anchor a .png image within the view, lock it in its possession to give the feel of AR )?

    Do the assets have to be baked into the app ie. Do You always have to take your assets from your 3d tool (maya/blender)and import them into the raw folder first, do the conversion to get the .sfa and .sfb files then build the app or is there a way load the assets from a service. One example of this use case is with the Furniture app, Do those assets have to be pre loaded into the app and the only way to add new assets, is to run an update on the play store or can Sceneform assist in loading the assets from a service/server so that the list of assets are dynamic and the app size doesn't have to be bloated? (I know cloud anchors accept data from a service, is there something similar for assets or asset data for example live updating the .sfb file)

    EG0o1 Assets can be loaded over the Internet, they don't have to be embedded into the app

    I'm new to AR and I'm tinkering with Unity and ARCore. As I understand, the major difference between Unity and Sceneform is that Sceneform can be integrated in multiple ways to already existing apps, whereas in the case of Unity, Unity becomes the app as Guy mentioned and that Unity has to be coded in C#. What about the rendering of 3d models and the app size increase? Does Sceneform do better here?

    Dils Matchanov yes, I know what Unity is. I just wanted more insights on what Guy mentioned in the video (scroll to 10:30) about the differences between Unity and Sceneform with respect to the fact that Sceneform integrates more easily into an already existing application.

    SceneForm is a framework. Unity is a game engine

    Before Google announced SceneForm, developers had been using plain OpenGL to work with 3D graphics, which is very comlicated to use. And SceneForm was created to make working with 3D graphics in AR easier. Unity is a game engine with built-in and easy to use 3D editor. So, if you use Unity you shouldn't care very much about SceneForm.

    Is it possible to use Sceneform even if you are not building an AR app ?

    But is it possible. Looking at the light demos don't seem to be AR Apps.

    This first release of Sceneform focuses on the critical rendering functionality needed by AR applications.

    You can play with a WebGL prototype of the engine here: (not optimized at all, may run slowly on laptops :)

    This talk also contains an excellent description of physically-based rendering even if you are not into Android.
