Kinect Alternative, anyone using ASUS Xtion PRO ?

I because Kinect is limited to 30fps I bought the ASUS Xtion pro
it runs at 60 fps

does anyone use it with Max ?
if yes, how ?

Thanks a lot

You might be able to use my jit.openni object
and there’s a wiki there

I used the OpenNI APIs so if there is a OpenNI stack for the Xtion, it might work on it too.

Thanks Diablodale,

too bad I am on Mac ;-)

there is an unstable version of Primesense sensor for OSX

So on the paper it is possible to build an OSX jitter object like yours, right ?

i did a quick & dirty port of jit.openni on a mac with a kinect some time ago.
As far as i remember, there were only some minor compiler errors that needed to be fixed.
So it’s definitely possible (at least with a kinect). It was quite heavy on the cpu, though…
