Introduce yourself!


Welcome to the forum Cory & Jan. I’ve initiated a new topic on the subject where we can continue the exchange. :slight_smile:


I am an artist and academic working on the reproduction of nightly dreams in virtual reality. nimate was a great help for me in these 3 years. I use nimate since 2012 with Blender Game engine for my art installations. You can find here two works which are made only using blender game engine and nimate. both works are reproductions of dreams.

Hi there!
My name is Jose Rozúa. I am colaborating on a project for the Univerisity of Granada, in Andalucía, Spain. We are going to use NI MATE for several things like capture poses, interact with Blender in real time, maybe some animation series, etc. I am very excited to have this new version. Thanks given to all the guys here in Delicode.

My “main” work is to teach drawing (visual arts) in secondary schools. But I love making 3D with Blender. I won last year hyper realism challenge from Blender Guru with a composition called “Break-fast”.

Besides all this (hehe) I am driving a digital comic publishing (very small) enterprise: There you can find comics in different tastes.

Thanks a lot!



My name is Per and i am working with interactive experiences for stage, concert, art and museums. My main tools for interactive graphic stuff are Isadora and Max/msp/jitter and Arkaos GrandVJ.

I am working as a freelancer and my company name are FANKY art Lab, a mix of arty as well as commercial projects. We have pur base in Sweden but operate world wide.

I have just finished my first real project with NI-Mate, an art installation at Tekniska Museet in Stockholm. We are now working on two new installations with NI-Mate for an exhibition, and i see a lot of future potential use of NI-Mate in our art lab.


Hello, I plan to use NIMATE for motion capture and Cinema 4d - I would consider for sure paying for the Pro version if I could find some info on what using multiple 360 kinects would do for me vs just the 1. How clean are the tracks etc. 360 kinects are so cheap would it really be advantageous to buy like 4 of them and run it through NIMATE? Are there any examples anywhere of what kind of results I could expect? Also I would love to know if NIMATE takes advantage of multi threading. I’ve got dual 14 core xeons so I figure I could do multiple kinects no problem. I couldnt see how to post a new thread in the main forum so I’m asking here - thanks!


I’ve added a new forum thread here about this here: Can I use multiple sensors of the same type concurrently?

Note that the Kinect for XBox 360 model 1473 has issues on OS X, so you should get the older 1414 model if possible and on OS X.

NI mate 2 was largely rewritten to add extensive multithreading support. Right now every sensor is processed in its own thread in NI mate, and all sensors also run in their separate processes. In addition, if you have a graphics card with the required extensions it’s possible to use GPU to speed the live feeds. The limit in your case is probably going to be USB bandwidth.


Hey All,

I am an artist practicing in generative art, interactive media, public art, sound design, music production, dance and theater production. I work in Ableton Live, Isadora, Processing , Z Vector, Max For Live, and Cinema 4D.

I’m Savita Hans,im working on my final year engineering project.Currently I’m working with Delicode NI-MATE V2.0. and the software gets installed properly but wen i run it with KINECT XBOX 360,the NI-MATE gets crashed!.I’m using WINDOWS 7.32-BIT and Blender for REAL TIME CLOTH SIMULATION. Please help me at the earliest.I would be glad if u could suggest any other software for real time cloth simulation.


For crashes, please send a crash report which will then go to our support system.


I have reported the crash problem.For correction im using NI-MATE V2.10.please tell me the solution.


hey even after disabling the GPU texture transfer mode,NI-MATE is still getting crashed!!!, Please help me at the earliest.

My name is Hilmar Thordarson and I am a composer and a research fellow at Norwegian University of Technology and Science (NTNU). I am currently working on a research project, Conducting Digital System - ConDiS a conducting glove, designed to enable a conductor not only to control the overall sound of the performing musicians but also to control a digitally processed version of the performer´s sound in real time. I am looking at Kinect2 as a promising motion sensor for my project using Mac OS platform. ConDiS is directed toward new possibilities in musical composition and the interaction, the expressions, the musical gestures and movements of the classical conductor.
