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.
What does the tracking camera in HP MR headset record?
Good day everyone,
I have a HP Mixed reality headset with the required system specs as mentioned in https://goo.gl/w35F86 and have installed all the tools to build Windows MR apps (https://goo.gl/yP0HH2).
I just started working on a project which requires mixed reality and pardon me if I sound naive. I'm able to see the Cliff house in the headset. I'm also able to create simple scenes in Unity and run it on the headset. But now I'd like to work on the real world data and I can't find the API which extracts the real world video from the 2 cameras in the headset.
I was hoping to record video from the two cameras in the headset and I have these doubts -
- Do they really record videos or is it just a tracking camera? What type of camera is it and how does it function?
- If its not possible to record video like mentioned above, what is the best alternative to do it?
It'd be really helpful if anyone could point me in the right direction to create mixed reality apps.
Thanks in advance!
