This is a proof of concept i did, there is much to be improved on the tracking algorithm. But maybe this could be a useful tool for animators.
Finally had some time for a little Kinect hacking.
On ubuntu 10.04 i used this solution. But aparently the xhci module is now called xhci_hcd . So i needed to chage “/etc/pm/sleep.d/05_disable_usb3″ to
#!/bin/bash ## Unload USB 3 module before sleep case "$1" in suspend) /sbin/modprobe -r xhci_hcd ;; hibernate) /sbin/modprobe -r xhci_hcd ;; thaw) /sbin/modprobe xhci_hcd ;; resume) /sbin/modprobe xhci_hcd ;; esac
During a course at DTU this January, we (Søren Vinter Poulsen, Frederik Peter Aalund and Me) created this Java Program. The goal where to create a simulation of a sensor network. The solution where designed and implemented over a 14 day period.
Download the jar file here.
You should run it with something like these parameters
java java -Xms1024m -Xmx2048m -Xss512m -jar
.java files is included in the jar file.
My wordpress posts is now auto projected onto my twitter account http://twitter.com/jeppewalther
Working on some visual test for a project on sensor netowrks.
Guess its been a while, a quick update.
After the end of the Discoworms production i wanted to try somtheting new. This lead to me starting at DTU (Technical University of Denmark ) where i am now well underway with a bachelor degree in software technology.
I have also updated the CV on this site, and added a twitter widget in the right panel. Hopefully this will create a bit of life on this blog.
I will try to do a bit more updates from now on.
Yes the movie have finished, go see it from the 10th of October
I have started using PyQt together with Maya to make much richer ui’s. QT is a killer User interface development, tool and framework. PyQt is the Python bindings.
One of the tools that makes it a joy to work with PyQt is the designer application.
Only problem about PyQt is thah its a pain, to get it up and running with Maya. So here is a little tutorial. I have not done this on windows yet, but who uses that ms stuff anyways.
1. Compile and Install a Python version equal to the one Maya is using. Thats 2.4.3 for Maya 8.5 and 2.5.1 for Maya 2008
I suggest installing all of this into something like /global/usr/
$> tar xvfz Python-2.4.3.tgz $> cd Python-2.4.3 $> ./configure --prefix=/global/usr --enable-unicode=ucs4 $> make $> sudo make install
2. Link site-profiles and lib-dynload to the newly install equals
$> cd /usr/autodesk/maya8.5-x64/lib/python2.4/site-packages $> cp -rf maya/ /global/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ $> cd .. $> mv site-packages site-packages_old $> mv lib-dynload lib-dynload_old $> ln -s /global/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages $> ln -s /global/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload
3. Compile and install QT
$> gunzip qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.3.tar.gz $> cd qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.3/ $> ./configure --prefix=/global/usr/local $> make $> make install
4. Compile and install sip with newly installed Python
$> tar xvfz sip-4.7.3.tar.gz $> cd sip-4.7.3 $> /global/usr/bin/python2.4 configure.py $> make $> make install
5. Compile and install PyQT with newly installed Python, Sip and QT
$> tar xvfz PyQt-x11-gpl-4.3.3.tar.gz $> cd PyQt-x11-gpl-4.3.3/ $> /global/usr/bin/python2.4 configure.py --qmake=/global/usr/local/bin/qmake $> make $> make install
everything should now be working.
