[ANSWERED] Kinect v1 on mac mini m1
eight last edited by Juriaan
I followed the instructions https://support.troikatronix.c... to the teeth, and on opening the kinect-example-file.izz on mac mini m1
"Missing Actors/Plugins": The following actor/plugins could not be loaded: OpenNI Tracker (ID='5F4F4E42') error.
Has the openni plugin been tested on M1? Am I supposed to do some extra steps to load the openni plugin?
Same steps on Intel Macbook Pro produce the working kinect patch
The OpenNi Tracker plugin will only run in Rosetta emulation mode on the M1.
From the 3.1 release notes:
OpenNI is Intel-Only On macOS
The OpenNI Tracker actor uses a third-party library that is compiled for Intel-based computers, and will never be upgraded to offer a native Apple silicon (ARM/M1) version. If you want to use the OpenNI Tracker actor on an Apple silicon-based Mac, you will need to enable Isadora to run Isadora in Rosetta (i.e., Intel emulation) mode.
@bonemap is spot on. Sadly openNI and the libraries behind it dont work on M1 hardware.
Rosetta for now works fine.
Let us know if you have any issues / further questions

@bonemap Thanks for your input. I confirm that when starting Isadora 3 with Rosetta, the error above is gone. I don't have a kinect connected to that machine, so can't test further.
