  • Same problem here, i try to recognize a PDF_417 but the camera have too poor quality for this type of bar codes and the hololens camera have a fixed focus.

    Any advice?


  • @lollo,
    Hi,you can try like this:
    UnityEngine.VR.WSA.HolographicSettings.SetFocusPointForFrame(position, normal);

  • Hi,
    thank you for your answer but that function has another goal infact it is used to improve the visualization of the hologram. My problem regards the Point of focus of the Camera which acquires the image frame .

    Thank you for your helping @shenwooash ,
