Load kinect data (.xed) from visual studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hallo,

    I have kinect data, recorded with Kinect studio. I can open and view the .xed files from the kinect studio, but can I open them also through the visual studio? The problem is that every time I press "Start" in visual studio to run my c# app, it starts with live streaming data, then I need to switch to kinect studio with loaded playback data, connect it to my application and then start streaming my recorded data. This is pretty bad, because I am storing skeleton joints from my recorded data, and I don't want irrelevant data to be stored in my files.

    Alternatively, is there a flag, which indicates whether the data stream is live or it comes from playback?

    Thanks for any help!

  • There is no support for .xed files from Visual Studio.

    When you initiate playback from Kinect Studio, it always overrides the runtime with the data recorded in the file. From an application perspective, it would have no differentiation between whether you are playing back from file or getting the live data directly from the sensor.

    There is no support to open a .xed file independent of using Kinect Studio.
