Brekel Kinect v0.35 update

As usual see the releaselog for details, but in short the most important changes:

One important update for BVH recording, in the previous version you needed to be in a good position when hitting Start for the BVH header to be correct, this information is now stored when you’re in the Psi-Pose during initial user detection, resulting in cleaner BVH files.

I’ve also added a better workflow for recording dynamic 3D objects. You record the raw pointcloud data as quickly as possible to .bin files, and use an external tool to do the conversion to 3D objects (like .obj for example)
This external tool is called “Offline Scan Processor”, look for it’s shortcut in your start menu after installation.
And look for a How-To document under the Help menu of Brekel Kinect.

Cheers,

seq2avi

Just uploaded the latest release version of seq2avi.

seq2avi is a little windows tool for quickly converting an image sequence into an AVI file.
Just drag and drop one of your frames on the executable and it’ll start converting, as simple as that.

It should be intelligent enough to handle negative frames, use or lack of a
file extention, different zero padding, missing frames and empty frames.

Supported image file formats are:
BMP, Dr. Halo CUT, DDS, EXR, Raw Fax G3, GIF, HDR, ICO, IFF, JBIG, JNG, JPEG/JIF,
JPEG-2000, JPEG-2000, KOALA, Kodak PhotoCD, MNG, PCX, PBM/PGM/PPM, PFM, PNG,
Macintosh PICT, Photoshop PSD, RAW, Sun RAS, SGI, TARGA, TIFF, WBMP, XBM, XPM

If you want more control have a look at the included readme file as the following things can be done:
– specify output
– add .wav audio
– select codec by specifying fourcc code
– select codec by popup selection window
– delete images when done
– show preview while working
– set fps
– resize widt/height
– add overlay text
– gamma correct
– hdr gamma correction with several tonemapping options
