Nimate and Windows - Decoding Floats



  • Hi Everyone.

    I am trying to get a skeleton going in windows with Nimate. I would LOVE to be able to use Fred's skeleton server, but alas, I am on windows (anyone know of a kinect or nimate skeleton actor/server for windows?). I can receive all the OSC outputs from Nimate, but I am having trouble figuring out how to decode the floats. Nimate outputs 3 floats per OSC channel when using the "simple" profile.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  • Dear jsteph,

    As you've already seen, the Isadora Stream Setup window shows three values for a single OSC Address for the NI Mate points. If you set the port number for that address to X, then the three numbers will arrive on OSC Channels _n__n_+1, and _n_+2. 
    For instance, if the port number is 4, then the three floats will arrive on channels 4, 5, and 6\. So you'd set your OSC Listener channels to those numbers.
    If you simply let the Stream Setup window receive all of the possible OSC addresses from NI Mate, then hit the "Renumber Ports" button, Isadora will automatically skip some port numbers to accommodate this scheme. For example, the first OSC address will be "1", the second will be "4" and so on.
    Best Wishes,
    Mark


  • Mark,

    Thank-you very much! Works like a charm. I appreciate your input.
