View Full Version : Using the Kinect Motion for Camera Tracking

07-29-2013, 03:43 PM
Hey guys,
Here at work we do a ton of virtual set work and we feel strongly that if there was a way to use the Kinect motion sensor for camera tracking it would be a Godsend. (Hell I am doing camera tracking right now).

I was thinking that a way to accomplish this would be to use a Kinect bar hooked a camera using a rig, and some on set markers.

The rig could look like this http://www.geek.com/news/kinect-and-a-dslr-team-up-to-add-depth-to-your-videos-literally-1487297/

We could use this for our virtual set work here at the office.

What do you guys think? Can this be done?
Here is another video of aumneted reality using better camera tracking:

maybe you can just attach a print of your face to the camera so the kinect tracks it thinking it's your actual face :)
Being serious :) it might really work

Not sure about your credibility in front of your client though...
The Ps3 thing seems like a better option.
