RGBD workshop participant Aleix rendered with the toolkit

The RGBDToolkit is an open source platform for volumetric filmmaking that utilizes a hacked Kinect depth sensor paired with a DSLR video camera to creates a unique hybrid form of three dimensional video. The toolkit allows experimentation with a new paradigm of filmmaking where 3D models derived from large image datasets allow for choosing perspectives after the fact, merging photography and 3D animation.

The RGB+D tumblr (http://rgbd.tumblr.com) showcases on going research from the artists developing the software while they create their work.
