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.

adding shadows to objects is missing

there is no shadows for the objects.
this breaks the quality of the videos.
I'm not looking for a detailed shadow which follows the floor, but just a simple blured shadow in option.

for example I use the dinosaur, but he is floating in the video due to the lack of shadows.


  • I was just setting up a scene in realize the shadows are going as well. Has there been any updates of this? I no longer find it is an option in the UI

    The color presentation with HoloLens is inherently additive.
    Currently, there is no way to subtract lights from the scene you see.

    You cannot hide totally a real object behind a Hologram or Actiongram.
