No, that’s merely a convenience and a suggestion. There are two things to look out for:

  1. Your Kinect’s field of view should match the interior of the sandbox. You don’t want to waste any pixels by scanning the floor, and you don’t want to waste sandbox space by missing a few inches inside. Use RawKinectViewer to align the Kinect, and then lock it in place.
  2. Your projector should do the same, ideally project exactly onto the interior of the sandbox. If you have a zoom lens, set it to a medium zoom level for optimal image quality. Align the projector by displaying anything on the screen, or use the calibration pattern provided by Vrui’s XBackground utility, and then lock it in place.

If those two are taken care of, where exactly your Kinect and projector end up doesn’t matter.
