Real-Time Motion Capture using Kinect, XNA and the DigitalRune Engine

Do note that this requires a third party project, the DigitalRune Engine, but you can get a free 30 trial for it AND if you're using this non-commercially you can get a free license too. Our last post about real-time motion capture using Kinect seems to be pretty popular. And for the small amount of time (only a few hours) that we put into this example, the results are satisfying – but we can do better! We have updated the project and included a brand new sample. The new sample uses skeleton mapping to animate 3D models using Kinect. Project Information URL: I was able to download the 30 trial, the sample code from the article (click through for it) and was playing with this in just a few minutes. Stream Kinect mocap data into Blender with NI mate. Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker Programming duo Delicode – also known as Julius Tuomisto and Janne Karhu – has released NI mate, a free application for converting real-time motion capture recorded with a Kinect into MIDI or Open Sound Control data.

The converted data can then be streamed into a 3D application via an import plugin: as yet, only the Blender plugin has been released, but Delicode plans to release one for a second (unnamed) app in a few months. Delicode’s demo short, The Kinected Bunny (above) shows Big Buck Bunny from the Blender Foundation’s open movie of the same name being controlled in real time via NI mate and the Blender game engine. The results are mixed: Big Buck tends to glide as he walks, and his jaw moves directly up and down – although it’s hard to say whether that’s the result of the software, the rig, or a combination of both. However, this is a tool that’s still in open beta. Read more about NI mate on the project’s blog. BVH Conversion Release - motions list - cgspeed.

I recommend the 2010 release over the original 2008 release, however links to both data sets are available below. Please see the 2010 README file for details of the minor changes. There have been no changes to the actual CMU motion data or to the bone structure or names -- only the initial T pose, which isn't part of CMU's original dataset to begin with, has changed.

March 22, 2011: all download links on this page were broken because MediaFire deleted all files without notifying me, but should be fixed now.
