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.

Can a maker of films transition to Hololens (not a programmer)

Hi, my brother does films for lawyers, and other businesses. He films, and then edits with advanced software. Would HoloLens help his profession in any way?

    Hey, @Gidmeister

    Check out these videos:

    Hope this gives some ideas.

    Building the future of holographic navigation. We're hiring.

  • So it seems from the two videos that you can put an artificial 3D character in a movie, and (somewhat less clear) create an entire artificial landscape and setting for a movie where real people move in the landscape. Does that sum it up?

  • I did one for internal use. Ask him to watch this video. I did contact the producer of this short movie for something. She got an invite/offer to discuss to make a movie in Hollywood after the success of this.

    It's all about the imagination how to use this technology. There is no limit to it.
    See the video below.

  • The vimeo video by HoloDevices shows a kind of integration that might work with crime scene reconstruction. I don't know personally anyone who makes such films (the closest I know of is a person who films court depositions), but I'm thinking that a lawyer who is trying to convince jurors of a particular scenario could take a crime scene, and put in the actors. I guess you could use real actors too, but usually you are not supposed to invade actual crime scenes. The creatures and little girl in the Vimeo video are remarkable. I assume HoloLens movies could do the same, except maybe not with retina devices. I wonder if you could superimpose historical figures over actors using this technology?
