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.

Display home environment in immersive app ?

I'd like my app to be played in the home environment. The experience is quite static so it would make sense. I'm not sure if it is possible. I've already tried applying black / transparent background to the camera. I'm using Unity 2017.2 beta.


  • Hi @Gruguir,

    I just want to confirm, you are hoping to be able to run an app in the context of the Cliff House, as if you were wearing a HoloLens in that environment?

    I just want to make sure I am understanding your question correctly.

    @Jesse_McCulloch yes that's what i meaned.

  • Ok, cool. Let me do some research. I seem to remember seeing something about this, but I don't remember what it was.

  • i'm fairly new to this platform, i thought we would be able to do it. It seems not. Maybe a planned feature ? I only found a static bool to check occlusion in Unity doc.
    @Jesse_McCulloch did you found something by any chances ?

  • I would also be interested if this possibility exists, Ill post if I find anything
