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.

Limiting Fov

I was wondering if it is possible to limit the fov further, to improve placement/highlighting accuracy. Currently I see that it we get: 1280x720 (pixels) with a 45deg fov on the default mode. I was wondering if one can get 1280x720 with a 22.5 deg fov or not.

  • Are you using unity? Obviously, the FOV is fixed on the actual hardware itself. However, the camera is Unity has a FOV adjustment you can make.

  • What I want is to be able to get 1408 (on the high camera settings) with a 45deg FOV instead of the 48deg, to improve resolution and be able to identify small objects.
    Doesnt really matter on the unity side, it is the actual camera that I would like to be able to configure.

    I see, I'll let one of the admin answer, but I'd be surprised if the actual hardware is that configurable.
