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.
ViewMatrix in Windows::Media::Capture
My goal is to get the RGB camera pose in a fixed coordinate system (without Unity).
I explored 2 paths to getthe same information:
1) I can get the coordinate system linked to the "head" with SpatialPointerPose^->Head, and then position Position, ForwardDirection and UpDirection.
To get the camera coordinate system, I would need the rigid transformation from head to camera (located, I guess, a few centimeters front to the head). How could I get this transformation?
2) I can get the RGB frame coordinate system with MediaFrameReference^->CoordinateSystem.
To get the camera coordinate system, I would need the view matrix (extrinsics parameters). How can I get this matrix ? (I saw the post https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/locatable_camera_in_directx which explains how to get it using MediaFoundation but I thought MediaFoundation was the deprecated version of Windows::Media::Capture. I am using Media::Capture for all my app and I just can't find this viewMatrix in the doc...) .
Thanks in advance for any help I can get here.
