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 make ActionGram?

As you can see in this video:

the takai is actually not a model but filmed. Is there any tutorial how to make a actiongram like this?


  • hello, i'm not sure i understand the question sorry - is this about creating the model? or capturing the video? thanks!

  • I'd be interested to learn how to build a model for an actiongram
  • You're right! Actors like George Takei (and a lot of the holograms seen in the Holograms app and Actiongram) are filmed on our holographic capture stage that actually turns people into 360 degree video that looks real, because it is real! As of now, there's not really a cost-effective way to do this at home with that level of quality... a lot of tech is required. Some companies, like us, rent their stage out to people interested in creating content, but it wouldn't be easy to replicate at home. Watch this video to learn more about how we make holographic video out of real people:
