One of the layers of my MA Show is intended to be a holographic recording of two actors narrating my exhibit. After a great deal of research, I could not find out how to do this. So I asked Microsoft, and was referred to a HoloLens specialist in Romania. He had an idea how this might have been done but did not know for certain, so consulted some other experts. I did not get an answer but was instead referred to the HoloLens Forum, which shed no further light on the subject. Then I found this YouTube video which did.
How Microsoft records Holographic video content for the HoloLens
Apparently we start by capturing performances with 106 (YES one hundred and six) synchronised RGB and infrared cameras on a calibrated green screen stage. Need I continue? If you do, you can see from the video that it gets MUCH more challenging. Sadly beyond the capabilities and pockets of most mortals including myself.
So I will have to adapt this aspect of my MA Show, and have yet to figure out what and how. I will post another a blog when I do.
