Thanks for all the input. I have yet to upgrade to Yosemite, but once I do, I hope I can get beyond any compatibility issues, but I would imagine people have got the kinect working fine using open-kinect on OSX 10.9.5 before.
BTW, Vade I saw the Squarepusher show in Detroit last May and was thinking at the time he was using open-kinect for his body projection. It looked great. Also, it was cool to see some of the video content was using your rutt/etra emulator as well. 🙂
I’ll report back here on how I get along with getting my kinect up and running with open-kinect.
