Prepare for your shoot using the DepthKit Capture Application
Plan for your shoot
In preparation for a DepthKit shoot there are a few things to consider; picking a camera and lens, mounting your sensor to your camera, choosing lighting and materials that won't disrupt your sensor.
Only relevant for DepthKit Capture Pro. Calibration is not required for sensor-only captures.
In order to accurately calibrate a camera with a depth sensor, DepthKit needs to understand the subtleties of all the lenses involved. To sense these values for both the Kinect and cinema camera we capture and analyze images from both.
If this is your first time calibrating please allow 3-4 hours the day before your shoot to get it right.
For Depth-only captures you only need to calibrate the Depth camera.
