Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

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.

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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

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.
