export body volume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to know if there's a way of exporting the volume of a portion of the frame (possibly the player figure) using the kinect fusion algorithm.

  • This is not supported by the API. You can use Import/ExportVolumeBlock to export segments of the data, but it isn't much use since the data block is not supported external to Kinect Fusion. Your only option is to use the vertex/index data or implement something on the point cloud(Depth) data.

  • I need to compute the body volume to do simple calculation that can be done inside the kinect app. Is there a good way to do it?

  • Export the point cloud for the entire reconstruction and base you calculation on those points.

  • How can I calculate the volume from the exported point cloud? Is there an already implemented function or should I do it myself? Can I simply take the depth data for the body and calculate the z delta (thus having a rough estimate of half of the body)?
