I would like to see some sample trackings using this update before I invest the time in buying again, I know what dual did using 2 machines, and I suspect it should be similar results, but since others already have this set up and running, maybe they can post a vid or 2 doing just a range of motions, walking around some, sitting on chair and floor, stuff like that.

I would only use this set up for basic daily motions, nothing extreme, I have PS Eyes for that, but slower daily type motions and a faster tracking speed would be of interest to me, because just 1 Kv2 doesn't cut it and dual machines before was just not optimal.

Hoping someone can post a vid or 2, exported to an external 3D package on a character would be great, but just importing character into iPi is fine too :)

If I do test them again, sure I would post my results in videos and post any issue I may run into using the update, any info. helps for other users to refer to.

Thanks to those that do the same.

Oh, I totally agree...if there's any improvement in quality from using dual Kinect 2 sensors, it's because of recent improvements with the tracker, not because both Kinect sensors are on the same computer. I'm more interested in seeing results from using 3 to 4 Kinect 2 sensors. I except the results with more sensors to be more accurate then but probably still not as good as using 6+ PS3 Eye cameras in an optimal environment.

My interest in pursuing better results with depth sensors is because I have a less than optimal environment for video cameras. For me, the depth sensors have always been a more practical solution. I just want it to be a little better. I think 3 sensors will probably solve more occlusion problems but I have a feeling I won't see much difference with 4 sensors.

I'll try to do that this evening. At the moment, I'm busy recording videos for another animation program, which should warm me up for recording practice videos for Mocap Studio later. :)

I see there's a new 4.2.2 release for Recorder. Will try it tonight.

- Infinite continuous auto-refreshing of device list on home screen when using libfreenect2 to work with Kinect v2 via UsbDk driver.

I guess this is what I was seeing described above. Thanks for the fix!

- Device lost during background evaluation when using libfreenect2 to work with multiple Kinect v2 devices via UsbDk driver.

I ran into that one last week. Will check if this still happens tonight.

As a matter of fact, I'll re-test dual Kinect 2 with this release on the laptop and see if it works better there. (Dual Kinect 2 currently works fine on my desktop.)

Thanks for all the details of your tests with dual Kinect 2 sensors, Greenlaw. I may be trying this setup out later this week, and it's reassured me that the process is well-documented and seems straightforward. Useful to read comments on additional USB cards, if required, too.
