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
