Cyclops usage


    Jan 13 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Hi, I am building up an installation that uses kinect for the interaction. Basically I placed the kinect on the roof top because I want to track the position of the people in the space. I have the kinect working and it basically generate a black&white image where I see in gray (different percentage for each person) the moving people.
    Now I would like to use the cyclops node to track them but I cannot find proper documentation to understand how to use it. If some one got an idea on how to make it please tell me.
    Thank you very much

      me either, i purchased cyclops thinking "oh here is a dedicated Max external for tracking" but the help patch is pretty ambiguous and emailing the guy who wrote it was a mistake, He apparently sold it to max/msp years ago and does not even have a help patch anymore. were you able to get anything running with Cyclops?

      Yes after days of intense testing I got it working. I also tested other external to track and I found very interesting stuff. Cyclops works fine but I think depends on the application you are building. If you want I can share with you some knowledge about it, let me know what you want to do. Just to let you know: cyclops on pc got a bug and it is not possible draw area through the iterface, you need ti create them trouh a message box (that actually is quite annoying.
