    Hello! I want to record the color depth and infrared stream with k2? How can I do?

    • Hello. You can use Kinect Studio for this purpose. Kinect Studio is included in the April update of Kinect SDK v2.

        Hello!
        On the same subject..
        Is there a way to save color/IR streams as compressed video format? (MPEG, .avi, mp4) so I would be able to access it later (not from within the Kinect studio/ visual gesture builder apps)..
        Preferably using WPF / C# like in your tutorials.
        I found on the web many examples of how to save MPEG from a webcam, but I am bot sure if this is usable with Kinect sensors frames.
        Appreciate any help.
