Kinect not precise

Oct 15 2012 | 12:30 pm


I am using the Kinect to trigger videos if the right or lefthand enters a zone. However, I see that there are two zones trigger while only one should be triggered. Anyone can see what is wrong with my patch. My setup is: Kinet–> Synapse–>Kinect-via-Synapse–> My patch. For testing purposes I included MIDI-notes instead of videos but the idea is the same.

I added an interruptor so that when one bang is received, it will not get more bangs during 2 seconds. Nevertheless, I still get double notes. What am I doing wrong?

I had a quick look and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the 2 pak objects. For every kinect output frame you get sent the 4 hand values. The pak’s will output their list when they receive something in any inlet, so will fire twice. Only the 2nd list contains the correct new values. The first one contains half the data of the previous frame.

Btw, your topic title is bad. It’s not the kinect being imprecise, is it?

Ok, probably not the Kinect. I will study on it more today. But I should anyway throw every first list away right?
