Trying to figure out a way of displaying .pdf files in a AR-experience using Hololens. To do it with a smart phone/ tablet works fine since you cna work with the 2D-canvas.
However it becomes trickier when using Hololens. Ideally I would like it to work something like this:
In this video different information popups apear, however I think this is 3D-image widgets which I'm able to create. But would be better to actually try to import a .pdf file and make it apear as a popup like the images.
Is there anyway to that?
ps. Using Hololens 1.
Hi @PhilipB ,
to see the pdf on a surface it should be a picture on 3d Image or you can use some kind of shader which could read and interpret the pdf format - I do not think that this is trivial.
you could use ,may be, some techniques to convert the pdf file to svg file format first (which is as a vector graphic) and use the svg file instead. For example , refer to the overflow post(Convert PDF to clean SVG? [closed])
Hi @RolandRaytchev ,
Allright thanks for the answer! Then I know atleast that it isn't a feature that is possible for now.
I'm new in the world of app development with HoloLens and with UWP apps in general. I have basic training of C# and Unity, and started to know how works HoloLens in general.
