Which software should I use for video recording from kinect? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello to all .

    My educational project is about hand gesture recognition using Kinect .

    I want to record videos using Kinect (kinect for XBox One+adaptor) , and then I'll do video processing in MATLAB.  I need to record the positions of the body coordinates , and depth and color videos .

    Which software should I use for video recording from kinect?

    Is it possible to get Depth Frame, Color Frame as well as the skeleton data for all the frames at 30fps ?

    can I use matlab ? or there is an issue with the fps when running the Kinect on Matlab  ?

     Thanks in advance .

  • Use Kinect Studio to record things and store in .xef.

    Then use Kinect Studio again to play it back while your app/editor/whatever is running and start reading data and use them.

    Normally I'd say use whatever you feel comfortable with but I think I remember people telling me Matlab is not easy to get good perf when you demand a lot of info(like your case). But since that's not a verified opinion try it anyway if you think you can manage it more easily than say C#.

    If you're comfortable with C# I recommend it as there's loads of examples using WPF/XAML in the SDK Browser so you pretty much have everything. It should be enough.
