Ni mate Staff:
I am interested in using your sensor in animation development in Blender. There are a number of issues, but first, these are my potential specs:
Blender plug in (animation_delicode_ni-mate_tools.py)
USB Port 2.0 (Thinkpad T410)
Xtion Pro, Xtion Pro Live, Primesense Carmine 1.09 ?
I guess the first question is, will this work? Since I’m on linux I take it I need to use an older version of Ni mate. I downloaded version 1.2 from this site:
Do you have any plans on porting version 2.0 to linux? That would be great.
Does version 1.2 of Ni mate work with your current Blender plug-in?
The next issue is my laptop, being older, only has USB Port 2.0 available, which limits the sensors I can use. The ASUS Xtion2 will only work on USB Port 3.0. The Xtion Pro and Xtion Pro Live will work on USB 2.0 but seem to be a little hard to find.
Possibly Primesense Carmine 1.09 is a solution:
however, I am a little leery, since it is owned by Apple and I wonder if it will work on Ubuntu. Does the Primesense Camine operate essentially the same as Xtion Pro Live ?
Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
