BackLight compensation method RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning,

    I saw that there are four "method" for backlight compensation used when autoexposure is enabled: when I move in front of Kinect, the "lightness" of the RGB stream changes, more or less, according with the selected method. My question is:  these methods are "software" algorithms (with an elaboration of the RGB stream before it is made available to the application) or they are implemented by the modification of some Kinect parameters (like gain, exposure time, or others)?. In my project I monitored these Kinect parameters, retrieved by NUI API,  but I saw no changed in their value even if the RGB stream changes its lightness.

    Thanks!

    Please share you kinect version and operating system. Also, be aware this forum is not for OPEN NI issues if this involves open ni.
