Hi Malcom,

looking at the z for a coming project. Should I hold off for an official top from TD or just dive in and write my own?

It's probably 1-2 months away from being released. We just got a new co-op programmer in whose likely going to be doing the work.

Oooh might just scrape in on time. Wondering if i make a start anyway could I shoot through some queries and possibly contribute back to the project.

One request for the TD ZED implementation - play nicely with SteamVR

There seems to be some differences between the ZED SDK implementation for Unity and for UE4. Whereas in Unity you can access the ZED depth camera but still use a Vive setup for tracking, with UE4 this is blocked for some reason (forcing you to use ZED for tracking). Would be great if TD implementation behaves more like Unity than UE4 in this case! The inside out tracking via stereo binocular ZED is interesting but doesn't compare to Vive.

Hi Malcom,
Any updates on zed for TD? I'm thinking about using the camera for a project and that would be super helpful

It seems like it's 90% done so far. We are dealing with some lingering integration issues related to CUDA. Hopefully we'll put out a build soon with it.

Awesome! I was just about to write my own. If you need a beta tester :)

Yeah I'm having no joy on the 9.x cuda versions of the sdk so going to rollback to earlier firmware and sdk. See how it goes :/

Is there an approximation of what might be included in the top? Ie read depth, cam left / right, confidence maps. Or are other features planned.

We're hoping to get a build out today with pretty full support, trying to tie up some remaining loose ends. We have a TOP, CHOP and SOP coming for this camera.

Thanks so much for your patience. Here is the build:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/yrx6gq7l596d4 ... t.exe?dl=0

let us know how it works for you.
Note that since this required changing the CUDA version, this feature can't make it into the 2018.20000 main branch. So you'll need to use this build until the 2018.40000 comes out.
