Сonnect blob tracker and kinect?

Hello everyone!
Is it possible to connect blob tracker and kinect? And through which node?
Cheers.

Yes, the workflow would depend on what you want to track. if you want to track objects based on the depth map, just take the ouput from the kinect, pass it through a luminance from depth node, add a threshold, then add a blob tracker.

If you’re trying to track a particular object, it might be easier to just use the colour image and key it out, this is basically the same steps as above, but without the luminance node and using the a key colour mask instead.

Finally, if you just want to track a body (e.g hands), you’d be better off using the kinect skeleton, and connecting whatever you want to track to the relevant bone.
