The RealSense CHOP references a RealSense TOP camera and fetches tracking data from it. The RealSense CHOP supports skeleton tracking through the Cubemos Skeleton Tracking API. It is Windows only. A Cubemos license is required to use the skeleton tracking.
Skeleton Tracking Setup
The RealSense CHOP supports skeleton tracking through the Cubemos RealSense Skeleton Tracking API. The Cubemos API requires a license to use in TouchDesigner. A full license can be purchased here; a trial license is also available. Installing their SDK is required to setup the license file. After installation of the SDK, the license can be setup with the
post_installation.bat script in the
C:/Program Files/Cubemos/SkeletonTracking/scripts folder. A model file (
.cubemos) is also required for the skeleton tracking, two of which are packaged with the Cubemos Skeleton Tracking SDK, located in their
Parameters - Setup Page
active - When enabled, actively fetches skeleton tracking data from a RealSense TOP.
top - The RealSense TOP camera to fetch skeleton data from.
skeletons - When enabled, displays the skeleton channels.
maxplayers - Specify the max number of players tracked.
Image Position Pixels
pos - When enabled, will display positions of each landmark in image pixels as x/y channels.
Image Positions Normalized
norm - When enabled, will display normalized position values of each landmark as u/v channels.
confidence - When enabled, will display the confidence value of each landmark. When the confidence channel value is 0 the landmark is untracked.
Parameters - Common Page
timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.
scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.
Sample Rate Match
srselect - ⊞ - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.
- Resample At First Input's Rate
first- Use rate of first input to resample others.
- Resample At Maximum Rate
max- Resample to the highest sample rate.
- Resample At Minimum Rate
min- Resample to the lowest sample rate.
- Error If Rates Differ
err- Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.
exportmethod - ⊞ - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.
- DAT Table by Index
datindex- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
- DAT Table by Name
datname- Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
- Channel Name is Path:Parameter
autoname- The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has
autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.
exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
