Learning Curve for Unreal and Unity

This week has been a learning curve with Unreal using Blueprint and also using Unity. So far Unity has been the easiest to some sample AR file onto my iPad.  I had put together a sample AR project for my iPad but ran into a problem with the build Xcode and camera access but eventually go it working. I did have a problem getting wall plane to register. Could be that the surface is too white for the camera? See the video below.

Also played with replacing the cube mesh shape with a different asset and getting rid of the yellow test surfaces. I spent a bit more time with this than I have expected but I learned quite a bit about the interfaces and plugins. I will try and avoid using Vuforia, I think the cost is a bit prohibitive but I have played with the mapbox a bit and trying to a an objected tied to a GPS point. That bit is still a work in progress.
