Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How to get motion controller transform

Do you know how to get current effective motion controller transform?

I'm using this for now.

forearch(var sourceState in InteractionManager.GetCurrentReading())
Vector3 controllerpos
sourceState.sourcePose.TryGetPosition(out controllerpos);

I want to get controller's transform, not only position.

  • thank you.
    It works for me!

  • here is my rough guess, haven't been able to run VR preview yet with my Vive CV1. But controller idea is pretty much the same. You are in a Pawn, you need to get the pawn owner(a PlayerController), and then get the player index from there(on server), then set the index.

    I will have to setup my UE4 first, and possibly just compile from github source to make it work, cause both UE4 and SteamVR is a moving target, compile and update is probably a safe bet.

    It's hard to even find someone that have a vive to do multiplayer test I guess, so gotta find a buddy soon.(I have a few in local indie dev group that owns pre dev kit, so I can ask them to test with me once I got a build going.)

    edit: oh, and I don't know about the answer to 2nd question. not even a guess.
