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.

Depth camera

edited May 2016 in Questions And Answers

Do you have plans to expose APIs for depth camera? How can a developer make use of information caught using depth camera?

    We don't have anything to share about possible future APIs. We're super focused on actual current APIs. :) Raw depth data isn't exposed, so there is no way for a developer to use the data from the depth camera, aside from the Spatial Mapping meshes which are derived from that data.

  • If we won't have access to the depth sensor api, can we at least get info on how the depth sensor contributes to the mesh computation?

  • Depth camera / sensor API would be very valuable and create many new possibilities. Hope it could become available in the future.
