    I uploaded two minor software updates for the Kinect and SARndbox packages to the main download areas:

    Kinect-2.8-001 contains a new device rule file that allows non-administrator users access to all revisions of first-generation Kinect devices, and a new tool in RawKinectViewer that simplifies AR Sandbox calibration step 5 (“measure 3D extents of sand surface”). I also changed KinectUtil so that intrinsic calibration parameters downloaded from a Kinect’s firmware now use centimeters as camera-space units, to conform with KinectViewer’s and SARndbox’s expectations.

    SARndbox-1.5-001 fixes the notorious “blue line” bug, and has an additional filtering feature that goes a long way in removing surface jitter and keeping water surfaces calm.

    See the “Complete Linux installation instructions” thread for instructions on how to download and install those.

    …a new tool in RawKinectViewer that simplifies AR Sandbox calibration step 5 (“measure 3D extents of sand surface”).

    What is the new tool and how is it used?

    thanks!

    The new tool is already shown in the video for that calibration step.
