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.
Residual rendering artifacts in the C++ Holographic DirectX11 App template in Release mode.
I'm checking out the C++ Holographic DirectX11 App template (the colored cube app). I had to fix the template to work with my multi-GPU system (I'm on a Surface Book with an Intel GPU and an NVidia GPU), as it was choosing the wrong adapter and crashing. Once I got it selecting the adapter that WindowsHolographic wanted, it runs fine for the most part. However, in Debug mode it randomly flashes a bright random color for a single frame, and in Release mode it randomly flashes residue of previous frames together. I know this because if I start the app and don't move my head, the colored cube and the residue stay in the center of the screen. If I look to my left, the cube moves to the right of the screen and the residue looks like a horizontal band with the cube's height from the center of the screen to the right of the screen. If I look right, the residue band spreads across the entire screen. Looking up, down, around, etc. spreads the residue around the screen. I've attached a screenshot of the residue capture from my phone. I have a short video as well at https://1drv.ms/v/s!Aobf-6_VE2qWk6NAomHwRPtk4tFpKg. This doesn't happen in Cliff House, only in the app template (and in my app, which is derived from the app template). Additionally, it only happens when running on the HMD. If I run on the WMR Simulator or the HoloLens Emulator, it works just fine.
I'm using Visual Studio 2017 v15.5.5. I'm working in Windows 10 v10.0.16299 Build 16299 on a Surface Book 1 (i7, 8GB, GPU). I have the HP HMD and am connected to the Surface Book using a Surface HDMI-to-Mini-Display adapter. It runs Cliff House just fine, so I'm pretty sure that it isn't a hardware issue.
If you need any additional info, let me know and I'll get it. Thanks for any help you can provide.
