  • HoloLens – Camera object as child of MixedRealityCamera results in deviation Hi!
    I'm currently developing an app for the HoloLens which requires the use of a special Camera object with a specific culling mask. I made it a child of the default MixedRealityCamera so that it follows its movement.
    Although it seems to work at first, the more the user moves and rotates their head in the scene, the more that child camera's vision gets deviated.
    I put it as a child of the MixedRealityCameraParent instead and it works perfectly now, but I'm still interested: is there any...

    HoloLens - Camera object as child of MixedRealityCamera results in deviation
  • When using SteamVR, How do I change which camera is displayed to the desktop application window? I am using SteamVR and a VRTK camera rig in my project. Currently when I build the application I see that the HMD's camera is rendered to the main window. I was wondering if there is a way to change which camera is being rendered to the main window?

    Thanks
  • GVR SDK for Unity v1.130.1 I am developing applications with MirageSolo using Unity 2017.4.2 f 2.
    SDK uses GoogleVRForUnity_1.130.1.
    I'd like to acquire the height of the floor now but it will not work.
    As an execution result, bool: True float: -1.6 is returned.
    Is this my problem? Or is it a problem with SDK?
    Please tell me.

  • App works fine through instant preview but has major graphical errors in build. Obviously whatever the camera is recording isn't being rendered in any way. Clear flags are set to Depth Only by ARCore when the app starts so I'm not sure why it looks like clear flags are set to Don't Clear. The next most obvious thing is the screen is mirrored vertically! The scene in the screenshot is literally the vanilla HelloAR scene that comes with ARCore. I haven't made any changes. I'm almost positive the problem isn't the phone (Pixel 2.) It's brand new and I tried some ARCore...

  • Steam VR Unity assign ControllerManager Objects at runtime Good Morning,

    Sorry, this is a very specific and potentially long and confusing question but I'm hoping someone can help me.

    I am using 2 VIVE Trackers to create a 3D Audio AR networked VOIP application (basically have 1 tracker in the physical space as a networked player and the other tracker on the users head as I don't want to use the HMD) inside unity using UNET and the Steam VR plugin.

    So when I create the server and connect clients I am instantiating a Prefab object with a Tracked...

  • AR on HoloLens… Okay, this time I tried /qian256/HoloLensARToolKit on the streaming on-device emulator and ended up with a white square, a multicolored cube, and three lines of static text, all floating in arbitrary positions. It wouldn't even compile in Visual Studio for some reason.
    Are year-old demos even supposed to work? What am I doing wrong? Is there some sort of official archive of things that actually do work on the most recent version of Unity/VisualStudio, or is everything supposed to be trial...

  • ShadowDrawer broken – anyone have a fix? We've been relying on the ShadowDrawer shader to cast shadows from CG elements onto live action in AR through Vuforia. It's been working perfectly.

    Apparently, a there's a call to a routine in the shader that's been deprecated for a while but has now been removed from 2018.

    this is the broken line:

    half atten = LIGHT_ATTENUATION(IN);

    Supposedly LIGHT_ATTENUATION has been replaced with UNITY_LIGHT_ATENUATION but it's not a direct swap.

    We need 2018 to patch a vuforia/iOS 11.3...

  • Yet another camera scaling thingy… 🙂 Hi there :)

    Long Version:
    I am currently building an awesome mech simulator for VR, yet the camera is definitly too big. Since I don't want to scale the world (physics...), I am left with scaling the camera.
    The only fun thing is, that no matter what I parent the Cam to and no matter if I change the scale on either the Cam or the Parent, the Camera just stays the "same size", which is troublesome, since I dont want to enable the player to look through the roof of the mech... alll the time...

  • Trying to get Google Daydream controller laser to pass through a collider to hit another collider Hi, I am currently trying to find a way to get my controller laser to pass through a wall collider to reach a ball behind it. The ball has it's own collider and works without the wall, but I need the wall there to contain the balls. I have tried putting the wall and laser on different layers but that does not seem to work.

    The wall is there because it is part of a container that contains the balls, but the player is outside and needs to select certain balls once they stop bouncing.

    Does...
