• Hi,

    I's sorry to ask such a simple question but I'm looking for the kinect to izzy plugin that will allow izzy to recognize the camera… I searched in old post but nothing to download, it does exist do it ?

    You need the $25 dollar isadora core upgrade though.
  • Tech Staff

    What do you suggest for us Windows guys?

  • Thanks @Skulpture, you're so fast. I thought I had the core version but maybe not, so ok let's go shopping !

    cheers !
  • Beta Platinum

    The core version is worth the upgrade; you are getting into new territory though. It's not complicated as such; just 'different' @monsieurmeus 

    This is a little tutorial for publishing outputs in Quartz Composer. You have to publish outputs so that when you drop the .qtz file into isadora, it can see the connections.
    I thought there was a kinect driver/resource for kinect and windows now? Obviously not via Quartz open frameworks maybe?
  • Beta Tester

    There is the Kinect for Windows but I don't know of anyone who has these working with Isadora. My guess is that someone could write a plugin though.

  • Tech Staff

    Figures.. I always seem to get left out. I won't have time to look into this until the new year at least. hmm.

  • Beta Platinum

    A few links;

    Can't help with openframe works though sorry.
  • Tech Staff

    That might be just the thing to get me back into OF. Have really been meaning to get back into some C++.
    Has anyone on the forum had success using OF within the Izzy SDK that you can remember?

  • Search for "Nono" !

  • Beta Platinum

    Urrr this?

    Top hit in google for nono was 'products for hair removal, acne clearance and skin care....' haha! (Made me laugh out loud anyway!)

  • OK, I've got a little present for you all -- a totally "unofficial" release. But if you accept my gift, you must accept the following conditions:

    1) If it doesn't work, **you won't complain at all**
    2) If it doesn't yet have the features you need, **you won't ask for them** (at least not yet.)
    Got it? Do you promise? OK...
    Attached you'll find a little actor that directly pulls the depth image from the Kinect, and brings it into Isadora as a normal 'video' image. I finished this yesterday, as it's part of my research for my new piece (working title SWARM) which I'm currently developing at La Manufacture in Lausanne, Switzerland. For this plugin, I'll be releasing the source code soon so that intrepid coders can take it in other directions if they like.
    To install, put the plugin in this folder:
    /Library/Application Support/TroikaTronix/Isadora Plugins
    You **_are_** allowed to tell me if it works or not for you, and that it's great, etc. ;-)
    So give it a try if the function it provides seems useful.
    Best Wishes,
    P.S. Mac only at the moment... sorry!


  • Tech Staff

    Not showing up in Isadora 1.3.0f25 or f24.

    Not complaining just feedback :-)

  • Yes, same here(also1.30f26).

  • Hmmmm.... well, I had to install a bunch of weird stuff to be able to compile this. I'll have to try it on a "fresh" machine to see if it works. I'll let you know.

    Best Wishes,

  • @Skulpture  Isadora User "Nono"  - do a site search.

  • Beta Platinum

    Same; 1.30f26 also.

  • Its working for me!

    OS X 10.7.5,   2.4GHz Intel Core i7
    Izzy, 1.3.0f25
    fantastic! no more messing around to get it in! plug and play!  
    Thanks mark! 
    Im sure everyone here has looked at these things before however i just found this book preview thats compiled all the things that have so far been achieved with the kinect, thought it might be interesting. 


  • @Lanz you must have something installed that I do not have to make this happen. I tried boot from 10.7.3 as well and no luck.

  • @vanakaru i must admit i have been throwing around so much kinect stuff lately to get things working i couldn't say which bits are getting this to work.
