Parallax Kinect Sample

Postby malcolm » Wed Nov 19, 2014 1:27 pm

I'm sure you've seen samples of people using the Kinect's head tracking to make the monitor act like a virtual window. Here is an example doing this in TouchDesigner.
There is a ReadMe Text DAT in the file that says how to set it up. It's important you input the position of the Kinect relative to your monitor as well as the monitor dimensions to make this work correctly.

Updated with some typos fixed.

You'll have to change the Kinect CHOP to be set to version one, but all it requires is the head position so it'll work with the Kinect 1 also.

Just used this with a Vive tracker and it works perfectly. I took your code and rewrote it in GLSL, only to realize afterwards i was already getting 60 fps with your python version. :lol:

Cheers!
