ofxKinect updates ...

Howdy all,

Some notes on recent ofxKinect updates. The libfreenect team has added depth registration to libfreenect so we can now get a nicely calibrated rgb image to map to the depth image. It’s much much improved over the original ofxKinectCalibration. Kyle added this update and, as a result, the ofxKinectCalibration and movie player/recorder are now gone. It seems everyone is implementing different recorders etc so check out some of those addons as there isn’t a need to maintain this functionality within ofxKinect.

Another update is that multiple kinect support has been working for a while, so we merged that branch.

Annoyingly, we had a weird situation where somehow the unstable work in develop accidentally got merged to master, so I’ve tried to clean that up.

The api has been streamlined a little bit to reflect the new changes. Comments have been updated: https://github.com/ofTheo/ofxKinect/blob/master/src/ofxKinect.h

Also, please note:

If you need stable code, use the tags for your version of OF:
0062 https://github.com/ofTheo/ofxKinect/tree/0062
007 https://github.com/ofTheo/ofxKinect/tree/007

The master and develop branches are works in progress. The master is *more* stable and develop is bleeding edge for testing.
