Microsoft and Autodesk demonstrate Maya-HoloLens integration

At Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner’s Conference (WPC), Autodesk has demonstrated how the HoloLens would integrate with Autodesk’s Maya 3D modeling and animation software.


According to Microsoft, users will be able to work on a project in Maya on their desktop computer with a traditional mouse and keyboard while projecting a realistic 3D rendering of the model.

The 3D models can be updated in realtime while the modeler/designer is working on them, and then they can be projected onto real world objects and environments so that it’s easier to see how it looks in real life.
