How to get global physics world coordinates in Unity?

Hi, I have created a simple app in unity that uses a videocapture script to get/save a video.
I would save for each frame the global position of the device and not the Unity-App global position.

In other words, when I play the app, the camera start position is always (0, 0, 0).
I would get the absolute position respect the world.

Thanks in advice for your answer.

    If you want the device's position, then all you have to do is get the Camera's position. You can think of the Camera as the HoloLens, it moves around the scene as you do.

  • I understand but I'll explain better.
    As you say, the Camera's position is equivalent to the device's position but refers to the Unity World instead I Would the position in My Real World.
    Is it possible to get this position?
    Thanks for your reply.
