Guru Session #13: Body Tracking with Depth Cameras (Fri May 8th, 6pm CEST/5pm GMT/12pm EDT/9am PDT)
Well, unfortuantely those are not crash reports. Crash reports always end with .crash.
If you have files that end with .crash, then please do send them. These reports just show heavy CPU usage, but not the crash.
What I do see from the reports you sent (I think) is that your computer was running on battery power only. If that's true, maybe you should connect the computer to a powersupply? Perhaps it changes something with the Kinect?
Hi again! I guess what happen. I installed first the old plugins from the plugins download page, then I deleted them and installed the new ones from the guru session 13 folder without restarting my computer. After the last crash, I had to hard shutdown my computer and now the actor is working fine. I have been tracking for 20 minutes (and continue) without any issues. Great!!!!!
This is the last report that I get just five minutes ago. Everything was working (with power supply, thanks!!) for near two hours.
I hope it can help!

Asus Xtion Pro liveand Mac Pro 2012
has somebody an Idea where it is coming from:
I use OpenNi on my Macbook without a problem.
on my macPro (2012) I cannot get the OpenNI tracker to see a body. I get the depth picture from the Asus Xtion Live Pro but no body are tracked.
Both Computer run Mojave.
I have also tried on the same computer with an simple installation of High Sierra ( no extensions or programs running by start): same result.
Could it be a hardware problem (USB 2.0 instead of 3.0 or…)?
I have also installed Delicode Ni-Mate on both. It runs on the MacBook but crash by start on the MacPro.
Perhaps the other difference could be (in relation with USB 3.0) that I am sure I made the Hotfix for USB 3.0 on the Macbook but I don't know if I made it too on the MacPro. Unfortunately my Software Backup Harddrive died and the website with this hotfix doesn't exist any more. https://www.reconstructme.net/... But at least I think it was a firmware for the xtion and is independent from the computer.
one more thing: What I described was with a connexion over USB 2.0. I have also in the macPro a Card for USB 3.0 but if I connect the Xtion over USB 3.0 I only get device init error in the Openni actor
Very good to hear. Let me know what else you find out.
on my macPro (2012) I cannot get the OpenNI tracker to see a body
When testing the Open Ni plugin a few months ago I was unable to initialise any of my Orbbec sensors directly attached to a Mac Pro (2013). They initialised immediately on the Mac Pro using a thunderbolt hub with USB3 ports. I also tried a USB 2 hub but the Orbbecs' didn't initialise through that either. My Kinect sensors worked directly on the MacPro it was my Orbbec Astra’s that required the hub workaround.
I don’t know if that will help your situation.
Windows 10 (Isadora 3.0.7, Normal version)
When I try the sensor (Kinect 2 - Xbox One) I get an image and it sees my skeleton. When it does the garbage collection, so after 10 seconds or so when I'm out of the picture again you see the load going up and then the load goes down again but it crashes Isadora.(It also doesnt go down to the load before the load went up) I sent the crash report to your servers :) (Juriaan as License name)

@mark THANKS MARK!!
@mark thanks for the help so far.
I dont have any homebrew installed. it came back with "-bash: brew: command not found"
i tried the process you outlined over and over and still cant get it working again regardless of which version of the OpenNItracker i use. I tried every usb port on my machine as some are 2.0 and some 3.0 on a pcie card. Sometimes when the OpenNI is placed in the blank scene it immediately reads: "resolving" in status and does nothing.. sometimes it flashes "init device" for a while and then stops flashing that and stays on init device.. sometimes the kinect itself stops flashing green once i place the OpenNI actor.. ive tired everything.. deleted prefs again, disconnected all non essential devices from computer.. deactivated all my qartz plugins, corea audio plugins not loaded, deleted my global user actor folder (since it had a full setup saved with tracker, skeleton, etc).. makes no sense as it worked all week.. the only software I installed since it was working is Newtek NDI tools.
the kinect itself is not the issue ..i tested the kinect on my macbook pro 2013 also running the same Mac os 10.13.6 and isadora 3.0.7.. and IT WORKS.. just can't get it working again on my tower. the laptop is too old and slow to use for my insatiable needs:(

on my tower
can you tell us which tower? it is the same as mine: Mac Pro 2012 (5.1) USB 2.0 native+ Inatek PCIe USB 3.0 Card.
v0.9.6 of OpenNI Tracker is available in the "alpha builds" forum thread.
The record feature is now enabled. It seems to work well on both Mac and Windows now. I'm sure this feature will be a boon for development, since you can now record and play the depth streams and have the tracking work as if there were a person in front of the camera. Let me know how it works for you.
@jfg This version may solve your problem with the Asus Xtion. Try it and let me know.
The record feature works fine for me! That´s great. Thanks Mark!!!!

I have to apologise because I gave you yesterday wrong information. I tested yet all different configurations new and the result is:
- 0.9.2 works fine on both computers (I have to use the masquerade file)
-0.9.5 and 6 won't recognise bodies on both (I haven't forget to put the masquerade file at the right place)
on the Macbook with USB 3.0 the Xtion is recognised.
on the MacPro (2012) the Xtion is only recognised over USB 2.0. If I connect it on the USB 3.0 Inateck PCIe card i get only device init error
The color video output give me only a frozen picture on the macBook (usb 3.0).(the first picture after switching). Work ± on MacPro (Jitter)
thank you for your help

Just sayin' the new openNI plugs are TERRIFIC! They work perfectly with my aging MBP laptop and kinect 1414. I used the kinect for a performance/installation back in 2012 and it was a pain... it then went on the shelf. I used DeliCode program in get the info into Isadora and then it was a bit of a crap shoot whether it would work or not. Congratulations to Mark and the team on getting this wonderful re-addition to Isadora up and running. The tutorial and the guru session were both most useful. Bravo ~
Hello and congratulations to this amazing peace of plugin. Same as @JJHP3, for the Guru Session I freed my 1414 from the years old dust and it ran on my MacBook in no Time!
I'm especially impressed by how fast the body recognition reacts and the accuracy of the skeleton tracking.
But I do have an issue on a windows pc. With the OpenNI plugin in the plugin folder, I get the following error:
This is true with Tracker plugin ver. 0.9.6 and 0.9.2
Windows 10 Pro 1909 1836.592
I could solve the starting error by installing the OpenNI drivers from structur.io. https://structure.io/openni
But I do have a general issue now, as the pc isn't recognizing the kinect right. In the windows device manager list, only the XBOX NUI Monitor is appearing under other devices, without a proper driver associated.
At a Parallel Windows VM, it shows additional XBOX NUI Audio and XBOX NUI Camera. Which is missing on the pc. The actor in here keeps saying 'resolving uri'.
Does anyone have an idea?
A few things that I noticed
1) Kinect v2 (Xbox One) is still crashing with the current version that was provided to us today. Sadly Isadora crashes so badly that I can't send the Crash logs to you since it doesnt create one with the normal workflow (So that you can send it from the Error prompt that pop-ups)
2) Load becomes massive like 70.6% on a Windows 10, MSI GE73VR 7RF Raider laptop (2000 euro gaming laptop with a Nvidia dedicated graphic card with just the Kinect v2 / OpenNi Tracker and a Projector attached to it's depth image in full screen mode)
3) When I say against Isadora that I only wish to receive the color map it still sends out the depth video signal as well.
4) I can't get the recording to work properly. What I did was I set the File input to tracking.oni and told the plugin to Record, do a silly dance, and press 'stop'. Then I try to play it back by pressing 'Play' and it doesn't show anything. It stops the active sensor flow and showcases a blank screen. When I'm looking in my file explorer or it even made a file called tracking.oni it doesn't show up.
