Re: kinect Tool

@PascalV: Are you referring to Kineme KinectTools, or a different Kinect plugin? Did you follow the Installation Instructions listed on the page I linked? After installing, did you try opening the KinectTools sample compositions?

Specifically what error messages are you getting? Please also check the Console logs (Applications > Utilities > Console) for Quartz Composer messages.

Re: kinect Tool

Hello, I use the kimene kinect Patch (Version 3) with the kinecttools sample composition. The viewer say no kinect connected, and the console say :

26/02/13 17:39:42,367 Quartz Composer[6275]: [KinectPatch _usbHandlerThread] {name = KinectTools, num = 2}: Starting capture session. 26/02/13 17:39:42,415 Quartz Composer[6275]: [KinectPatch _usbHandlerThread] {name = KinectTools, num = 2}: Could not open USB device. 26/02/13 17:40:48,950 mdworker[6285]: Unable to talk to lsboxd 26/02/13 17:40:49,012 sandboxd[6286]: ([6285]) mdworker(6285) deny mach-lookup com.apple.ls.boxd 26/02/13 17:40:49,000 kernel[0]: Sandbox: sandboxd(6286) deny mach-lookup com.apple.coresymbolicationd

I have a kinect pluged in the usb of the mac with a power supply. It work with synapse so i dont think it come from the kinect and the connection.

Re: kinect Tool

Thanks for the info, @PascalV. A few more questions: Which version of Mac OS X are you using? Which version of KinectTools are you using? Do you have any other USB devices plugged in? If so, please disconnect all USB devices, then plug the Kinect in, and try running the KinectTools sample compositions, and let me know whether that works.

Re: kinect Tool

What's the model number of your Kinect? (You can find it on the tag on the base of the Kinect. It's probably either 1414 or 1473.) One of the libraries used by KinectTools has an issue with Kinect model 1473.

Re: kinect Tool

no luck it's 1473. is there a solution ?

Re: kinect Tool

@PascalV: There's no solution yet. We'll investigate adding support for model 1473 in the future.
