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.

Vuforia VuMark in HoloLens

Does anyone have a working sample of Vuforia VuMark in HoloLens?
We can't seem to get it to work. Even though the sample projects from Vuforia work fine, our own apps don't seem to recognize the VuMarks.

  • This is something we just started playing with and we were able to get the Vuforia-Hololens sample program to work. (the one with the image targets with 2 tea pots). One thing I read is that the image target has to be the same size in the editor as it is when printed on paper. I expect the same goes for the vumarks. We'll be checking this out soon, but would love to know if you figured it out and have any lessons learned.

  • Terribly sorry for the late reaction. We finally succeeded in creating a working VuMark, we discovered that our AR camera wasn't connected to our Main camera.
    After that we succeeded in showing our custom models on our custom VuMark. The size on which it operates best however is something we'll have to find out. We tried several sizes but light conditions seem to alter the outcome.

  • @Destros Would you mind show us how you made your custom VuMark works on your custom marker? Or you can share your package in Github?
    I am still struggling with this...
