I have a student (more of a client at this point) who would very much like to get some motion capture data of themselves. We tabled the project this summer after a few hardware configurations didn’t work out, and it’s turning into such a rabbit hole that I feel it’s worth to ask.
I have a few questions, but what I really want is someone I can sit down with who maybe has some of this hardware (my client is in California and I’m working remotely) and can explain some of the issues. Since this is for work, I am willing to compensate you for your time.
My client does not have reliable access to a PC, only a Mac and a Raspberry Pi 3 that I recently advised them to get. I’m paid by their parents, but the client pays for any hardware themselves, and I understand a new PC is out of the question, hence my recommending the RasPi 3. I’ve recently learned that the Kinect v2 uses USB 3 and the RasPi 3 only has USB 2.0, in which case I probably advised them to get incompatible hardware.
My first question is, am I correct that I messed up? My second question is, how might I best minimize the damage?
Again, I am very much willing to pay fairly for your time if you can spare any to meet with me, especially since this is highly skilled and specialized help I’m seeking. Thank you.
