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 not stable (swim) when attached to a specific surface

Hi you there,

I attached hologram object around the real surface but observed apparent "swimming" when I moved my head. However when I raised the position off a bit (few inches higher), the issue is mostly gone. Note that I have calibrated the device several times. Does anyone have idea on what is wrong with this? Thank you!



  • Hi Simon,

    Do you see the hologram changing positions when looking at it from different positions around the room?

    If you only see the "swim" while shaking your head, this effect may be due to the stabilization plane. The Hololens OS makes a best effort to automatically identify the right stabilization plane for holograms you place in the world. When there is a real world surface adjacent to the hologram, the stabilization plane may not perfectly match the Hologram you are looking at.
