Kinect for windows on mac/maxmsp

July 12, 2013 | 3:18 am

Hello! I need to order some kinects for an university class. We will use mac computer and maxmsp. Is the "kinect for windows" working safely with externals like jit.freenect and jit.openni on mac?
So far we only worked with the old kinect with no problems but the new one we have no idea and before buy we need to be totally sure!
Thanks in advance

it is slightly broken. jit.freenect doesn’t work since a certain generation of (the old) kinects, and jit.openni can see only one kinect.
and that’s for the old kinect genereation, for the new one i can’t say much…. all i know is there has not been update for osx max objects since it came out.

Thansk for the reply. for me the question is if there is somebody who have the new "kinect for windows" and is using it on a mac computer with maxmsp.
