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.
Avoidance of passing holograms through the user. The smooth changing of the level of "transperency".
While I was reading
Hologram article (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/hologram), I've found something really exciting about how we can avoid the degradation of user's experience. Here is the bulk logic:
Two meters is the most optimal, and the experience will degrade the closer you get from one meter. At distances nearer than one meter, holograms that regularly move in depth are more likely to be problematic than stationary holograms. Consider gracefully clipping or fading out your content when it gets too close so as not to jar the user into an unexpected experience.
In terms of the last sentence, I don't really know to realize smooth fading as we get closer and closer to the hologram. I personally think that this functionality works as follows:
distancebetween user and hologram is 0.5m, so than the variable which will be called
fadingFactor = 0.5f, if the
distancewill equal 0.2m, so than
fadingFactor = 0.8fand so on. Consequently, if the distance between user and hologram is critical, so than that hologram should be fully transparent.
So, those who is already worked with something like this, please have a feedback.
All the best,
