    motion builder and kinect?????

    Just curious if there is anyone here actually creating there own motion files with the Kinect and motion builder. I can only dream of the day that 3DBUZZ has a class on custom animations brought in with Kinect, that would be awesome.

    I have been looking into it recently. If I get something setup soon, I will see if I can help make a video for others who are interested. I will probably only spend the time setting up videos if I can come up with a rig that produces quality results. Otherwise it is fun to play around with but just not very practical.

    At the book store the other day one of the 3d mags (I think it was 3d artist, but maybe 3d world) had a how to for using the kinect to generate mocap data for 3dsmax. I dont even remember what software they were using to generate the data but if you can find the magazine it may help you out.

    I have tried it out, but didn't have a model I could rig it to.. but from what I experienced, it picked up movement, but it doesn't pick up subtle things like finger movement, and you have to be facing the kinect or else horrible things happen (spasms in the rig )
