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.

Enable Multisample AntiAliasing

Hi everyone,

I'm developing a mixed reality app with HoloLens. I'm not using UNITY. My application is based on HoloLens UWP app available on GitHub.

I would like enable the Multisample antiliasing feature but I don't know how to enable it.

I set at TRUE the MultiSampleEnable in my rasterizer - no success.
The HololensUWP sample apps do not access the swap chain directly. So it seems difficult to set correctly the SampleDesc.Count (like in this example : https://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/129437/cannot-enable-4x-msaa-anti-aliasing-in-directx-11)

Any idea ?
Thanks !

  • While I personally haven't tried to do this yet. This may be possible. Take a look at this link It appears to be the approach you have to take.

    It isn't so obvious due to the swap chain handled by the OS instead. This idea is to create a multisampled render target and render to the back buffers provided by the holographic camera parameters and replace it with the multisampled buffers.
