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.

Video Capture with Holograms in Unity

I want to record mixed reality video in unity.
I already tried using VideoCapture (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/holographic/locatable_camera_in_unity).
but hologram is not appeared even if cameraParameters.hologramOpacity = 1.0f
I don't know why holograms is missing...
Should I set another one?
this is my code.

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.UI;
using System.Collections;
using System.Linq;
using UnityEngine.VR.WSA.WebCam;


using Windows.Storage;
using Windows.System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System;
using System.IO;


public class VideoRecording : MonoBehaviour {

static readonly float MaxRecordingTime = 5.0f;

VideoCapture m_VideoCapture = null;
float m_stopRecordingTimer = float.MaxValue;

// Use this for initialization
void Start()

void Update()
    if (m_VideoCapture == null || !m_VideoCapture.IsRecording)

    if (Time.time > m_stopRecordingTimer)

void StartVideoCaptureTest()
    Resolution cameraResolution = VideoCapture.SupportedResolutions.OrderByDescending((res) => res.width * res.height).First();

    float cameraFramerate = VideoCapture.GetSupportedFrameRatesForResolution(cameraResolution).OrderByDescending((fps) => fps).First();

    VideoCapture.CreateAsync(false, delegate (VideoCapture videoCapture)
            if (videoCapture != null)
                m_VideoCapture = videoCapture;
                Debug.Log("Created VideoCapture Instance!");

                CameraParameters cameraParameters = new CameraParameters();
                cameraParameters.hologramOpacity = 1.0f;
                cameraParameters.frameRate = cameraFramerate;
                cameraParameters.cameraResolutionWidth = cameraResolution.width;
                cameraParameters.cameraResolutionHeight = cameraResolution.height;
                cameraParameters.pixelFormat = CapturePixelFormat.BGRA32;

                Debug.LogError("Failed to create VideoCapture Instance!");

void OnStartedVideoCaptureMode(VideoCapture.VideoCaptureResult result)
    Debug.Log("Started Video Capture Mode!");
    string timeStamp = Time.time.ToString().Replace(".", "").Replace(":", "");
    string filename = string.Format("TestVideo_{0}.mp4", timeStamp);
    string filepath = System.IO.Path.Combine(Application.persistentDataPath, filename);
    filepath = filepath.Replace("/", @"\");
    m_VideoCapture.StartRecordingAsync(filepath, OnStartedRecordingVideo);

void OnStoppedVideoCaptureMode(VideoCapture.VideoCaptureResult result)
    Debug.Log("Stopped Video Capture Mode!");

void OnStartedRecordingVideo(VideoCapture.VideoCaptureResult result)
    Debug.Log("Started Recording Video!");
    m_stopRecordingTimer = Time.time + MaxRecordingTime;

void OnStoppedRecordingVideo(VideoCapture.VideoCaptureResult result)
    Debug.Log("Stopped Recording Video!");



  • Hey,
    Please try change:
    VideoCapture.CreateAsync(false, delegate (VideoCapture videoCapture)

    VideoCapture.CreateAsync(true, delegate (VideoCapture videoCapture)

  • The Script must be attached to the Main Camera?
