    Hi,
    I because Kinect is limited to 30fps I bought the ASUS Xtion pro
    http://www.asus.com/Multimedia/Motion_Sensor/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
      https://github.com/diablodale/jit.openni
      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...
