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.

How to cast shadow from a LineRenderer on the real object in HoloLens?

edited April 2017 in Questions And Answers

Hello everyone, I have a LineRenderer which is rendered using the material showed below. I used Legacy Shaders/Diffuse for shadow purpose.

The line is rendered in space. The shadow-related options have been turned on by:
lineRenderer_out.receiveShadows = true; lineRenderer_out.shadowCastingMode = UnityEngine.Rendering.ShadowCastingMode.On;

Shadow-related options in Edit->Project Settings have been turned on as well. However, when I run the program in HoloLens, still no shadow appeared. My spatial mapping settings are:

Could anyone please tell me where I went wrong? Thank you very much for your kind help!
