For each view:
Ensure that the size of all textures in all views combined is less than 300 MB when unpacked, keep in mind that textures take up more space than unpacked compared to when packed. We recommend using .jpg or .png file formats for textures.
Q: Are there videos on how to do things like reduce polygon count/decimation?
You can find many videos that detail how to do optimize meshes by googling “reduce polygon count” and adding the name of the 3D editor of your choice.
If the initial quality of the original model is not very good, a polygon count reduction may result in the model’s distortion. In this case, you will need to fix the original model before continuing.
Q: Why are there only 700 objects allowed and how do we manage that? We have more than 100 objects.
This is not a requirement, but we strongly recommend this. It is due to the performance limitations of the HoloLens. If there are more objects, then you need to combine them. Our video tutorials show how to do that in 3ds Max and Blender. If you have a model with more than 100 objects, and there is no way to reduce this number by combining them, then send it to us and we'll take a look.
Q: Do the spot and view dummy objects count in the 40 objects limit?
Q: Is geometry displayed double-sided? In other words, if we create a plane with no thickness, will we be able to see both sides of it? We are trying to think of ways to optimize elements to reduce the polygon count.
No, the geometry is not displayed-double sided. There should be thickness.
