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.

For which we should be able to capture the real world environment from the hololens and send it to unity where the face recognition part can be done and the recognized persons profile can be sent back and displayed beside their faces in the Hololens....but we are struck in capturing the screenshot from hololens of the real world...any help please

  • Thanks @stepan_stulov that worked!!!

  • do we have any tutorial or any source of help to create a face recognition application(and not just face detection) using c#??....i have implemented that in python..but doing it in c# would help us directly render the application onto hololens
