Post subject:  Do I need to have the records downloaded from slaves?

Just got my second Kinect yesterday and in starting to use it I made the test calibration recording and now it's taking a LONG time to download the records from the slave (wirelessly -- I could wire it up I suppose to speed up the process if necessary).

There is a "Close" button at the bottom but after waiting 8 minutes I'm afraid to do it. Do I really need to download these records? I don't need to see the ones from the main so I'm not sure why I'd need these.

I agree that wireless transmission can be too slow for merging multi-device data while in the middle of a recording session. It can be a useful feature if that's your only option but you do have two better options:

1. Cancel the download and merge later. This allows you to continue recording new motions without waiting. You can merge your data after your done with all recording and when the computers are wired, or you can use wireless merging then if you wish.

2. Use Ethernet cables to connect the computers. This is the best option as it can merge your data in a few seconds for most typical motion captures or a few short minutes for long recordings.

Note to the devs: I don't use wireless recording but I'm wondering if automatic merging should be optional for users who do. I can see how the constant 'interruption' might get frustrating when you just want to move on to the next recording. Just a thought.
