I am not new to Max, but I do not use Jitter much and I am new to the Kinect (late to the party, I know, but I have access to one and I want to experiment).
I have downloaded Jean-Marc Pelletier's jit. freenect.grab object, as well as Blair Neal's example patch. That said, I am still having a tough time wrapping my head around the data I am getting. If possible I would like to use motion tracking to control lighting and sound. Any help would be appreciated.
