we’ve started to work on Intel RealSense Depth Cameras support for VL.

The nodeset will give you:

  • Color Image
  • Colorized Depth Image
  • Point Cloud (incl. filters provided by SDK)
  • Depth Pipet
  • Full control over RGB and Depth sensors
  • Full info about the Device, Streams, Sensors and Intrinsics

If you have any ideas, comments or wishes, please let us know.

The development is sponsored by wirmachenbunt.
How cool is that! Thank you very much.

Github repo with instructions how to use the package (in alpha or gamma):



  • Camera runs async
  • Added Motion (IMU) data for D435i cams
  • Added GetIntrinsics node
  • If you’ve missed it: the package is available via (check the Github page for instructions)

Hooray! So looking forward to this. How to test? And will this include the IMU data for D435i?


Hello guest,

IMU data should be easy to get as soon as we have stable pipeline.
But we don’t have D435i to test its IMU, so I would ask you to test it when we’ll reach the point.



Some progress:


And… now for the brave:

Please test and report.
We are WIP.
(IMU data, multiple devices, multithreading, etc… are still not touched)


@robotanton , thing is we need the realsense in vvvv beta and don’t care much about how it is implemented in VL. it would be nice to have an easy way to test the thing instead of this 4 steps instruction inlcuding having to compile things and making references somewhere (which doesnt work).

can you please provide a zip with a working project ?


Hi @u7angel,

please check the Github repo again.
Now we have a ready-to-install nuget tested with the current alpha and gamma.

Hope it works for you.
