Hololens physical camera view vs Hololens actual view

I am making a raycast based on the view that the camera is outputting and while the cast returns the same coordinates, the hologram that is generated from the cast shows up in different positions on the hololens view and camera view. It's not too far off, but I want to make it exact as possible.

Here's a question I had posted earlier on the subject.

  • The reason for is that the object distance (to be displayed by HoloLens) is fixed to 2m. Then, there will be visual discrepancies between the physical and the virtual objects, because of:
    1. The focal length different from 2m
    2. The actual object distance
    3. The right-eye vision only and the indivisual IPD.
