Hi there, I’m new to VVVV but heard it was one of the better ways to create interactive pieces using a Kinect sensor. So my question is there any tutorials on how to use Kinect in VVVV.
The interactive piece will hopefully consist of the following:
An idle screen which consists a video/audio clip on loop.
To proceed past the idle screen the user will have to wave ( both arms using elbows.) to get to the next part.
Another video / audio piece explaining the project. After the explanation 3 options appear, the user will choose one of these options, using hand gesture like hand hovers over the option for a few seconds then it proceeds to play that video option.
after that video is done, the project shall return to the start, the idle screen.
A similar questions has been posted here https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/8600. As this is your first project with vvvv I suggest you also have a look at documentation. As for a kinect patch example you can head over to http://prototypinginterfaces.com/5-6/.
That prototype looks like the type of project I would like to produce, but
How would I build an interface for VVVV / kinect that would play video files?
Instead of a slideshow of pictures in the project you have shown me.
or the help patches of kinect nodes are pretty good too
Look at the different filestream-(dshow9) nodes to play videos in vvvv. I would set up three different video stills and as soon as one image is selected play the according video.
