[ANSWERED] Oak D
Hi all, just wondering if anyone has had a go interfacing an Oak D or Oak D lite with Isaodra?
I know that we have not tried/tested any of these devices in house. It looks to me that these cameras are developed specifically to work with the OpenCV library, so chances are that you will need to work with this library for most/all of the listed features.
These cameras do not work in the same way as the cameras supported by the OpenNi add-on on the add-ons page available for Isadora.
My approach to working with these cameras would be to work in either C++ or Python (the languages supported by OpenCV)
- Using Python: this is likely the easier method (python tends to be easier for non programmers to read) however, Python doesn't have easy support for Syphon or Spout, so image transfer to Isadora may not be an option.
Sending text and numerical values will be very easy though, since OSC is well supported by a few Python plugins
- Using C++: I would suggest Openframeworks, which has OpenCV, Spout/Syphon, and OSC add-ons available. This is the approach I took when creating a bridge application to collect and share Kinect 2 data on the PC some years ago.
