Get pixels associated with specific body part RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the Kinect-SDK to track a person. The Kinect-SDK is giving me information about the joints. However, I would like to get every color/depth pixel that is associated with a specific body part or joint and not just the location of a joint in color/depth space.

    For example, I want only my hand, foot, or whatever limb to be visible and the rest of the image should be removed. However, I did not find a way to associate a pixel with a specific part of the persons body. The only thing I found was that a depth pixel can be associated with a player but does it get any more specific?

    I know that the SDK is labeling the body parts of a tracked person in order to compute the skeleton, but is this information still accessible somehow? (take a look at the microsoft paper "Real-Time Human Pose Recognition in Parts from a Single Depth Image" for more information on that)
