The XRWebGLDepthInformation interface contains depth information from the GPU/WebGL (returned by XRWebGLBinding.getDepthInformation()).

XRDepthInformation XRWebGLDepthInformation

This interface inherits properties from its parent, XRDepthInformation.

Instance properties

XRDepthInformation.height Read only

Contains the height of the depth buffer (number of rows).

XRDepthInformation.normDepthBufferFromNormView Read only

An XRRigidTransform that needs to be applied when indexing into the depth buffer. The transformation that the matrix represents changes the coordinate system from normalized view coordinates to normalized depth buffer coordinates that can then be scaled by depth buffer's width and height to obtain the absolute depth buffer coordinates.

XRDepthInformation.rawValueToMeters Read only

Contains the scale factor by which the raw depth values must be multiplied in order to get the depths in meters.

XRWebGLDepthInformation.texture Read only Experimental

A WebGLTexture containing depth buffer information as an opaque texture.

XRDepthInformation.width Read only

Contains the width of the depth buffer (number of columns).
