For the Impatient

Get Hardware

Important! Kinect 2 requires Win 8. Only single Kinect 2 sensor is supported due to limitation in Microsoft Kinect SDK 2. Using multiple Kinect 2 sensors will soon be possible with the help of distributed recording feature, which will allow to record the same session with several computers. In this case each Kinect 2 sensor can be connected to a separate computer.
  • Get computer with DirectX 11 videocard.



  • Find a suitable space: not less than 8 by 5 feet (2.5 by 1.5 meters).
  • Actor should be dressed in casual slim clothing, avoid shiny fabrics.
  • Connect sensor to a PC, point it at the actor and use iPi Recorder to record your performance.
  • Please ensure that the whole body including arms and legs is fully visible during the performance. Start from a T-pose. Then goes actor’s performance.
