I’m looking at options for body tracking in TD.
I read this tweet by TD which has me a bit confused:
“Unfortunately Intel has dropped support for their face, finger, and skeleton tracking API and they are not supported for the D series cameras. software.intel.com/en-us/realse … indows-eol … So the RealSense CHOP can not work with D series camera either Some people have been looking into nuitrack.” - 10 April 2018
However, I did come across this:
software.intel.com/sites/produc … Tracking
The intel link notes that “Currently, four parts are tracked: Head, Shoulders, Chest, and Hands.” So I guess it’s not a full body tracking system yet. I don’t know if I’m reading all this incorrectly, but doesn’t this imply that body tracking does work, just not for the whole body?
I noticed that the release notes for Build 2018.20310 - Mar 02, 2018 state that the RealSense SDK has been updated to the new cross platform API. Can someone clarify whether the beta has a RealSense CHOP which works with the four parts mentioned in the intel doc?
If the new RealSense SDK is a non-starter for body tracking, what are my options?
My current worst case scenario is to write a cpp chop for Nuitrack (which does open up a lot of hardware possibilities)
Any help appreciated
