Convert Kinect Depth Image (IFTImage) to OpenCV IplImage

In my previous blog I showed a simple method to convert the color image data in IFTImage format to IplImage in C++. I was recently asked to show how to convert the a depth image to an IplImage so here goes. This is a bit more complicated. Microsoft Kinect SDK Version: 1.5 OpenCV Version: 2.4.1 […]

Convert IFTImage to IplImage

When using OpenCV with the Kinect SDK you will obviously want to convert between IplImage and IFTImage formats. There are two very simple strategies to accomplish this. Note: This is tested using Kinect SDK 1.5 while working with the Face Detect Toolkit. The first approach involves creating an IplImage header that points to the kinect […]
