Ventuz and LeapMotion

Post by ErikB » 29 Apr 2013, 13:54

Hey,

after a bit of playing around, I just got the LeapMotion to work inside Ventuz via our script node (rather than via OSC or external programs). So, for anyone wondering whether it will work or not, the answer is yes, easy. We will not need to make a dedicated Ventuz node for it, it is really simple code to get it working, they have done a good job on the libraries.

As of right now, I have had the gestures, fingers, pointing, hands and tools all working. Once the device is released formally, I will be happy to post a more detailed how-to.

Hi Erik,
You said that Ventuz can communicate with Leapmotion via script node, C# scripting? Can you give me more detailed clue? I plan to buy a leapmotion recently if it is possible.

Thanks!
Alfred

Yes, C# Script node. You can put the SDK for the Leap into the GAC and connect to the device directly from the node, then pass whatever information or events you want from it out via output properties.

GAC means "Global Assembly Cache" and it means that you can directly load and reference external libraries (DLL) in your script.It means you can directly load the Leap Motion SDK in a Ventuz script, bypassing the requirements for any external/third party piece of software.

Hi ErikB,
the software means the bridge between Ventuz and Leapmotion, after reviewing your post, I may misunderstood your meaning ;) ,there is no need a external program or software, just scripiting via script node, right?
