Kinect to Cycling74 Max

I don't think I've ever highlighted anything for Cycling ’74 Max, let alone a Kinect plugin for it! So when I saw that Dale Phurrough released an updated Kinect v2 Cycling '74 Max plugin, well...

New v1.1 of dp.kinect2: HD align, jit.anim.node, more filtering, better color for Cycling74 Max development

The new v1.1 release of dp.kinect2 for your Kinect v2 (XBox One) is ready for download from http://hidale.com/shop/dp-kinect2/

dp.kinect2 is a plugin, an external extension, for the Cycling ’74 Max development environment to use your Microsoft Kinect v2 sensor (XBox One) on your Windows PC.

This new release has several improvements; a more complete list is at https://github.com/diablodale/dp.kinect2/wiki/v1.1-What's-New%3F

  • jit.anim.node can be connected to dp.kinect2; use it to move the Kinect in a VR world, compensate for your Kinect's location, or to coordinate and combine multiple Kinect sensors
  • Alignment of all data at HD resolution -or- to the depthmap resolution
  • Filtering any combination of data by the people that are visible
  • More face tracking data and in easier to use matrix format
  • Improved frame rates, less jitter, better CPU usage for modern CPUs
  • More color pixel formats, better color accuracy
  • Easy install with a Max package, help file, examples, tutorials, and updated docs
  • Better support for collections, packages, and executables

https://github.com/diablodale/dp.kinect2/wiki has the setup guide, tutorials, and full reference documentation

The v1.1 release continues to have the features from the previous dp.kinect2 version. For example:

  • depth, color images, skeletal joints, face tracking, sound tracking, speech recognition, point clouds, accelerometer, ...
  • Compatibility with your dp.kinect patches. You may only have to add a "2" to the object name
  • Tested against Max 7 and Max 6 for both 32 and 64-bit Windows platforms
  • Based on official Microsoft Kinect v2 drivers for reliability and support
