    Hi Team,

    First of all, I have searched your forum and I wasn't able to find information about exact steps on how to set up Beyond and Kinect.

    I have show this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI6BZhjxD9k
    to an investor who owns about 30 lasers and FB3s and he was really interested in the implementation of Kinect with a laser show.

    Since, we are looking into buying Beyond Ultimate, I am trying to make a test with the Beyond Ultimate Demo.

    I would appreciate, if you can advise for the following issue:

    My issue is that in Beyond I can see the Kinect as active:

    But apart from that, I cannot do anything with it. Unlike the youtube example above, I don't see anything on the preview window and I cannot use the Kinect.

    On the other hand, if I check with the Kinect Studio, I ca see that the sensor is working:

    OS - Windows 10, 64-bit
    I have installed:
    - Kinect SDK 1.8 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40278)
    - Microsoft KinectRuntime-v1.6 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34811)
    - Pangolin Beyond Demo

    Please let me know, if you can give me an advise, or at least where I can find proper documentation on how to link Beyond and Kinect.

    Looking forward towards your replies.

    Regards,
    Slavi

    Thank you for your reply.
    I see that you didn't bother to even read the first 4 lines of my first message.

    Hi, Sid Sloth
    I really appreciate your help!
    Your videos were indeed helfull! At least you brought back my desire to try again!
    As of now, I have spen 100+ hours on all possible workarounds to get the demo working and I have officially given up. (To be honest, I don't know what to think about such expensive software, that cannot even prove in it's demo it's doing the job it should).

    I did all my tests with Kinect v1.0 (Xbox 360). I am trying to get my hands on Kinect v2.0 and hopefully I will manage to have some progress.

    If I get somewhere, I will definatelly update the thread.

    Regards,
    S.
