Getting Kinect live feed into Processing


#1

I’m trying to get the live feed from the Kinect into Processing. I see that it was fairly straightforward in v1.x but it seems the integrated Processing interface has been removed from v2.x.

I’ve successfully received OSC messages for the Skeleton and would now like to get the output feed.

Yes, unfortunately the Processing functionality never made it into NI mate 2.

You can output the live feeds using Spout / Syphon and use a plugin for that in Processing. The live feeds can be enabled from NI mate’s preferences. Note that the live feeds may not work on all older graphics cards.
