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.

Video capture records holograms with wrong scale and pose.

edited August 2017 in Questions And Answers

Hi everybody!
I have a problem recording a scene with Video Capture. When I record my scene, everything seems to work correctly: video capture starts properly, I move around the environment, my holograms are rendered correctly on the lens, and video capture stops its computation. Everything seems okay. However, when I get my video from the Device Portal and I watch it, it is clear that the holograms were recorded in a different scale and pose. You can see the problem yourself in this video:

I can assure you that the holograms were exactly of the same size and in the same position of the real objects I am handling.
Someone knows what the problem could be? Thanks!


  • The field of view of the camera that records mixed reality is actually larger than the FOV of what the user can see. With a larger FOV on the camera, objects will appear smaller in the final recording (try adjusting the FOV on your camera in Unity to see what I'm talking about). I think this is what is happening here, but don't quote me on it - I'm not an expert on cameras.

  • Unfortunately, changing the FOV seems not to improve the results.
    However, I tried to update every frame the Focus Point in Unity, setting it at the centre of my virtual scene. With this I managed to correct the position of the virtual objects, but the scale remains a problem, as you can notice in this latest video:

  • Have you solved it? I have the same problem.
