    yo for those still having issues with computer power etc, i managed to borrow one of the acoustic labs mac pro’s for the next few days… so ill try get it and set it up by four this avo, and if anyone wants to load their processing sketch/libs on there it should have no dramas…

    hey guys i had a look at all the old computers we got here, and they all have 25 pin parallel ports… i think i remember you guys saying you wanted 32pin?

    i still get an ”invalid memory location” every now n again in processing, funnily enough its when i press stop….

    does it still happen with the original kinectToolkit that is on blackboard? or just with your new code?

    So, another update from flo… We had our first big-screen test today, and were pleasantly surprised by the visuals being nicely softened by the smartSlab’s hexels… also by optimising the brightness of the slab we managed to get a slight electric-neon glow out of the 10-20 pixel block lines coning out of QC… thankfully taking [...]

  • this is absolutely gold, guys!!

    franly its exactly the same problem i was having… we fixed this two ways:

    first it worked fine with another kinect on another computer – have you tried this? i used keirs new laptop, and it seems like when theres lots of blobs or a really bib blob it freeze (but only for a split second on keirs, where mine wont come back)…

    second we now use one computer for kinect/processing the blobs, and another computer to render the graphics (send the messages via OSC)… its probably too late to try this approach now though… best to just try turning down framerate, using less memory etc i think>?

    sorry i cant help more mate, it seems to me like something funny just with some computer setups and the kinect… does it work on the school iMacs? i had the kinect running on one of them for like four hours today, finally no crash, just blob tracking and sending osc…

    good luck…

    Hi Martin, if no-one has booked after Amber and Inez tonight at 8-30pm, can we grab that slot please?

    Thanks mate…

    Thanks Keir, and thanks also for all that invaluable time on the debug.. just to continue to document in case there is anyone else out there following this: its traced to a very isolated problem with the kinect tracking blobs, specifically on my setup… Nothing im sure a healthy reinstall wouldn’t fix (and most probably [...]

    Rob, Thankyou so so much for this, and sorry for the long day and night you must have had! my weekend will be so much more productive now :)

    Hope you sleep well…

    Phew, so finally we are at the bottom of this kinect depth problem.  Turns out that everyone else’s kinect works fine on my computer, and my kinect eventually crashes on every computer! we got a dud! wonder if they do a money back guarantee!?   This was a classic case of ‘top-down’ problem solving (instead [...]

  • chris law commented on the blog post (S)Lo…   6 years, 4 months ago · View

    ok here’s another quick update (sorry, no pretty pictures this time)… so after today with more extensive testing we noticed that actually the bug is not with osc, as even Rob’s original barebones code has the same freeze(!)… like with our adaptation of the code, the freeze only seems to affect the blob tracking, as [...]

    ThumbnailHey guys, been a bit quiet it seems on the FLo front, so here’s the lowdown.. Been spending way too much time on bug tracing and such, trying to sort out this wierd OSC twitch… seems like it is easily overloaded with data, causing it to (oh so randomly) freeze – leaving p5, quartz and OSC still running [...]

    //. Hi guys, just a quick update as to our progress… having some issues with the stability of the processing/qc link.. sometimes the tracking will just drop out/freeze…anyone else using Rob’s alpha code that can comment/verify this? So we have the OSC bridge up and running finally, though currently only tracking single blobs.. sending vertex [...]
