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.
Unity Stereo Matrices
Is there any away in Unity to get the stereo view and projection matrices for the Hololens? I really want to save the previous frame's view and proj matrices for various effects. I've tried everything I can think of:
1) Camera.GetStereoViewMatrix and Camera.GetStereoProjectionMatrix are always identity.
2) The camera's transform/Camera.worldToCameraMatrix and GL.GetGPUProjectionMatrix do not produce correct View-projection matrices. In fact they are always the same for both cameras.
3) I've tried Material.GetMatrix("UNITY_MATRIX_V") and Material.GetMatrix("UNITY_MATRIX_P"), which always fail, likely because they are packed in Constant Buffers (UnityShaderVariables.cginc).
4) I've tried writing a native UWP dll that manually extracts camera poses from a HolographicFrame, yet HolographicSpace::CreateForCoreWindow barfs (SEH) because Unity has already done it for the app's CoreWindow.
Am I missing something? These seems like fundamental data that should be readily available.
