    Hello,

    I have set boundaries for the Mixed Reality headset so that I can move around. I am using MixedRealityToolkit and when I start my app, the MR camera seems to start at random positions (or I don't really understand how it works) inside the virtual world no matter what I set the position as in the editor before building it. I want the camera to start at a specific position and orientation inside the virtual space, that's all. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is the only info I found in https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/VROverview.html:

    "There are differences between seated and room-scale VR experiences:
    • If your device supports a room-scale experience, the Camera’s starting position is the center of the user’s play space.
    • Using the seated experience, you can reset Cameras to the neutral position using XR.InputTracking.Recenter().
    "

    Is room-scale experience the one I am using, i.e., setting boundaries? If so, what does "center of the user's play space" mean? And is there any way to override this starting position?

    Thanks!
