So as far as I understand everything is useless ... thanks for informing me
With NI mate, using it successfully will depend on what specific hardware pairing you are attempting to use. There is a known issue trying to use a Kinect for Xbox 360 (1414) with NI mate 2.14 on OSX Mojave or Kinect for Xbox (1473) with any Mac OS. I started a thread on the NI mate forum indicating the issue with OSX Mojave about 12 months ago. The most recent response from the NI mate developer Jesse (Sept 2019) on that thread suggests that there is no fix for this particular configuration coming any time soon ...
After this response from Jesse, I think we can assume that anything that is currently broken in NI mate is going to stay broken.
@mark - Hi Mark. That's fantastic. I saw the pictures on FB of the body tracking and it occurred to me that it might be something you and the team were demoing there. I'd be very appreciative of the 'beta' versions of the plugins if you're willing to release. My day job in technology management sees lots of products pre-release and I'm willing and able to offer any assistance I can. Thank you much and hope the workshop is going well!
