Kinect V2 compatibility

Is OF compatible with Kinect V2 sensor or strictly the V1?

I assume you rate OFs compatibility with Kinect v2 based on its default extensions. In that regard, it’s true, that the included addon ofxKinect only supports Kinect v1, since it is based on libfreenect. But there are addons which are adding support for Kinect v2. I assume a good starting point is ofxKinectV2, which builds upon libfreenect2. I have no Kinect v2, so I have no experience with any Kinect v2 addons.

Hmm thank you, I’ll take a look, hope it works

If you’re using Windows then you can also use the excellent https://github.com/elliotwoods/ofxKinectForWindows2 from Elliot Woods. That is definitely compatible with OF
