Kinect v2 Rig



Kinect v2 for Windows tracks 25 points on the user.

Curiously no documentation of the precise location has been released.

I build this character rig, based on various recorded tracking data.

Note that the Kinect v2 places the points at the center of mass and not necessarily at the joints of the actual skeleton. This is most noticeable at the head and hand-joints.
