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.

Hologram shifted in world space

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to render a hologram, using DirectX, at a spot in the world (coordinate system generated by the StationaryFrameOfReference, I get when the app is started), that is marked with a QR-code. To do so, I get the center of the QR code, generate the Ray in the world space, according to the specific pixel and the coordinate system, that belongs to the image. And get the position of the vertex, that is hit by the ray and the nearest to the user's position.

When I want to render a hologram at this position, theres always a shift up to 15cm to the exact position of the QR-code. The shift is variable, and I cannot recognize, what it depends on.

When I write the 3D data of the room into a .ply-file, and mark the detected position by color, the shift is not recognizable. Because of that, I think theres a problem between the coordinate system, I work on and the one DirectX renders the holograms in.

Am I missing a transformation from the coordinate system, generated by the StationaryFrameOfReference, or something? Did anyone noticed a similar problem?

Thanks and greetings,
Marius
