Kinect Frames

 

kinect data replayed from saving "frames"

 


kinect capture with frames on a computer with a kinect sensor

The OpenCV service can now record a series of frames to a directory.  The difference between frames and recording an video file, is all the data is preserved with the frames, so that the same set of frames can be used as input.

Most file saving and caching is done to the OpenCV directory.

Everytime the record button is used with (frames checkbox) a new directory with the timestamp is created and all the frames from the grabber are saved in non-lossy png format.

These in turn can be used as input to a computer which does not have a connect sensor as input which is helpful for experimentation, and debugging.

Switch to ImageFile grabber, select the appropriate folder, then press capture.
Or in code

cv.setGrabberType("ImageFile")
cv.capture("OpenCV/1543209759045")
Result is test data which can be endlessly repeated.
