Archived - 8 Steps to Add Intel® RealSense™ Unity* Toolkit to your Project

The Intel® RealSense™ SDK has been discontinued. No ongoing support or updates will be available.

This guide will help you import the Intel® RealSense™ Unity* Toolkit from the Intel® RealSense™ SDK to allow easy integration of Intel® RealSense™ technology into your projects. This guide assumes you have installed a supported version of Unity* and the latest version of the Intel RealSense SDK. Once you've imported the toolkit into your environment, check out the next tutorial in this series, 12 Steps to Apply Intel® RealSense™ Technology to Your Unity* Project.
