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.
Coordinate System Transforms
Could anyone help with what should be a simple conversion:
I have a 3D coordinate (4x4 matrix) in camera space obtained from image processing (openCV), and would like to convert this to Unity world space.
Following examples from ARToolkit / HololensForCV / Spectator View, I have:
1. The cameraToUnity transform obtained by transforming the Windows::Perception::Spatial SpatialCoordinateSystem objects of the camera frame and unity
2. The cameraView transform obtained through the Windows::Media::Capture::Frame MediaFrameReference properties
3. The 3D coordinates from opencv in camera space
How I think it should work:
coordUnity = coordCamera * cameraToUnity * cameraView^-1
Something has gone very wrong in this thinking, and the unity coordinates don't make sense.
Anyone have an idea?
