Info Kinect V1 & V2

Postby Dennis Kuypers » Sun Mar 05, 2017 3:24 am

Hello Guys,

If you would like to use the Kinect with Widget V6 then you have to install the Kinect Runtime (lightweight) or SDK (some files you wouldn't normally need):
Kinect V1 (XBOX): Install Kinect SDK 1.8
Kinect V1 (PC): Install Kinect Redistributable 1.8 (OR SDK 1.8 )
Kinect V2: Install Kinect Redistributable 2.0 (OR SDK 2.0)

You can install V1 and V2 drivers at the same time. For the best experience only connect one Kinect at a time. The Widget will automatically pick the correct driver. If you change the Kinect device, please restart the Widget.

When pressing "Enable" give the widget a few seconds to initialize. The Enable checkbox will turn itself off if no driver is installed.

I'm using a Kinect V1 with WD6 (Rev6322) along with the official Kinect driver (SDK 1.8). The Kinect is working when I enable it in the Devices menu. Although, when I use the Kinect node, there is no data coming out of it. How am I supposed to get the tracking data?
