    modul8 with kinect?

    by etwasetwas » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:37 pm

    Would it be possible to use kinect as an input device with current version of modul8 (without madmapper)?
    If so, what's the options do I have?

    . yes.. but, of course it depends on what you want to do and the resources you have a available.

    . i set up a kinect on a macMini then sent the video to a macPro running Modul8 ( http://vimeo.com/17314948 ) to play around w/the video streams. also, i set up the OSC module to listen from TUIOkinect so i could move my hands to control effects as well, but didn't feel like pursuing that module concept any further.

    . i would say start with TUIOkinect (http://code.google.com/p/tuiokinect/) and then send the OSC data to Modul8 to get a feel for what can be done.

    I just post a video tutorial that shows you how to use the kinect as a controller for Modul8. Hope you like it, is recorded in spanish, sorry about that: http://luiscript.com/2012/03/controland ... o-synapse/

    Agreed. I don't understand the video quite enough.

    . did you even watch the whole thing? i don't speak/understand spanish very well - but you could follow what he was doing...

    Download:
    Synapse - interfaces w/the Kinect, sends OSC data
    and the QuartzConnect demo

    *Edit to add - read how it is set up : http://synapsekinect.tumblr.com/post/63 ... z-composer

    OSCulator - an OSC bridge from Synapse to the Modul8

    He sets the output of Synapse to UDP port 12348

    In Modul8
    Load 'OSC (global)' module

    set routing in OSCulator
    set incoming port to 12348 (from above)
    the first column looks like 0=x, 1=y, 2=z
    change 'Event Type' to 'Route OSC'
    pick item in from the modul8 keyword list
    set port to the same port as the 'OSC Global' module (the module defaults to 8002 - he uses 9000)
    send the message '/md8key/(item from modul8 dictionary)/0'

    Turn on 'OSC (global)'
    Edit the module so
    value=DataList[2] / 480
    i'm guessing b/c OSClator sends x/y as a 640/480 position
    use value = 1 -DataList[2] / 480 to invert values


    . was that so hard?
