        As described on the ARSCNView documentation: "The view automatically renders the live video feed from the device camera as the scene background."


        Is there a way to programmatically disable/enable this behavior?  For example, if I have an ARKit app using Scenekit and I have added several virtual objects into scene, is these some way to only display the virtual objects with a black background?

          The bellow code works for me (use touch to on / off):


              var originalSource: Any? = nil

              override func touchesBegan(_ touches: Set<UITouch>, with event: UIEvent?) {

                  if originalSource == nil {

                      originalSource = sceneView.scene.background.contents

                      sceneView.scene.background.contents = UIColor.black

                  } else {

                      sceneView.scene.background.contents = originalSource
