Setting up Unity to work with Magic Leaps Lumin SDK is crazy easy. In fact, aside from using a different download link it’s a regular install!
But, just in case you need a walkthrough here’s a step by step guide to get you all setup.
1. Download the Unity Technical Preview
Download the Unity Technical Preview from unitys website (scroll to the bottom of the page for the download button).
2. Run the Installer
Click the install assistant it downloads to start the installation.
3. Go Through the Installer
Hit Continue on the Introduction screen.
Read the license and click Continue.
Unity likes to double check that you actually read the license and didn’t just click continue with a pop up. Click Agree.
Select the components you want to install.
You should definitely keep the Unity box checked seeing as that’s the main thing you want to install.
You’ll want an editor to edit code with so keep the Visual Studio box checked if you want to install it to use as your code editor.
If you want the full documentation then go ahead and keep that box checked.
Once you’ve selected the components click Continue.
Note: You might need to agree to some licenses for the components.
Select the drive you want to install Unity on. Then click Continue.
Unity is pretty large so it’ll likely take a little while to download. Luckily it doesn’t give you any popups (in my experience) while it’s downloading so you can leave it too it. Hit Continue once it’s complete.
Next it’ll start installing the downloaded files. It’s fairly quick, and like with the download process there’s no popups (in my experience) so you can leave it to it. Hit Continue when it’s done.
Once it’s finished installing you’ll see the lovely green tick/success screen. Click Close.
4. Launch Unity
Launch Unity and you can either enter your Unity username and password then click Sign In, or click the Work Offline button to get started without logging in.
