Make The Line Dance / Video

Video report of an Augmented Dance session test.
I finally managed to reduce the latency a bit, perceptually at least.
Using a Kinect for skeleton tracking,
QC to render the lines (+1024_ParticleWarfare + 1024_Rope + 1024_Skeleton),
MadMapper (+Syphon) to match video and real action,
MaxForLive for the randomly generated piano sounds.
And a Canon 5D SLR for the shooting.

    Very nice to see how your pushing the limits, keep it up!! I’m a QC user and follow your posts @ Kineme… very curious about the whole QC + Kinect + Madmapper workflow.. saludos

  2. Any chance of getting the QC files. I am working on two separate setups that would benefit greatly from this tech. The first is almost exactly what you did and the other is a tracking spotlight of one or two musicians on stage. I have been doing it with Modul8 manually with my mouse. Live tracking would be sweet.

    • I was so eager to get my hands on your code I forgot to mention how inspiring the 1024 visuals are to me. This is just yet another example in a series of installations that are helping push the art form into new dimensions, literally! I can wait to see what is next.

  6. I was about to do it soon. I was gonna be first. I hate you.

  8. [...] I chose this interaction called “Make The Line Dance.” The creators are based in France and they do a lot of really interesting interactive experiments. They used a lot of other technologies in creating the video mentioned above — in addition to Quartz Composer, they also used Kinect (for skeleton tracking), MaxForLive for the audio, and MadMapper to “match the video and real action.” (Source.)

      ca a l’air bien … mais ils ne mentionnent pas le prix, ni la latence, ni toutes les fonctions du SDK …

    Really nice work with cheap hardware. One of the strength of this technic is that if you project some 2D content, the perspective is good for all the point of view, and so for all the public.

    Maybe for that case an intertial motion capture suite could be better and you could increase the tracking volume. The price is not the same of course…

    It would be very cool to have 2 tracked dancers with projection mapping that evoluate with the interaction between the 2 dancers. Create some virtual physical rope, lightning, between them…

    I love your works :)

  11. ok so ihave this stupid idea about “Optical flow” that should help you i think. but i think its just stupid….
    but then again….

  12. Bravo les gars, superbe!!
    A bientot!!

  13. [...] The Kinect sensor is used to track body movement. More information can be found here. [...]

    Did you ever look at the GLSL Showpiece developer example from Leopard? You may wish to take a look at the skeletal skinning shader code.

  15. I think so. I think your article will give those people a good reminding. And they will express thanks to you later

  16. hello Fancois,

    i was looking around for the 1024_skeleton plug in in the box, but can’t seem to find it… any clues? would love to develop a bit based on this :)

    cheers

  17. hi
    I was trying to do this for mounts but the last time i did any programming was 7 years ago,so i couldnt even get the kinect work! i’m sure you’ve even done more by now,,,, well done :)
    is there any possibility that i can get your data ?
    are you in england? can we meet please?! i might have a little job for you,,,,
    thanks :)
