  • Dear all,

    I have get the idea about it from reading sample project in Toolkit. I will share it, if anyone need it as reference:

    rotationMatrix = skeleton.BoneOrientations[JointType.HandLeft].HierarchicalRotation.Matrix;

    This is the way to take out hierarchical rotation Matrix; as to the Absolute Rotation, it's the same way.

    I will mark here as reply to myself. If you get any more points about it, please feel free to remark it and sharing will be preferred.

  • sorry I moved your post by accident. Sounds like you have found the correct answer and the orientation of the joint is now provided. Using the Avateering sample should shed more light on it as well.

  • Yes, the avateering sample is just the example which finally provide me the ideas. Thanks for providing such good examples in the developer toolkit. :)

  • (a) Can someone tell me if the new SDK 1.5 support multiple kinect devices

    (b) Is there any on-going effort/research or samples illustrating how to combine two kinect devices pointing on same person and improve the quality of Avaterring? 

    (c) Any links involving 2 or more kinects using SDK 1.5?

    Thank you
