Reallusion is continuing to refine the live motion capture experience with iClone 5! As a result of the great deal of hard work and user feedback we have received, we are now well on our way to improving the usability and functionality of personal motion capture in iClone 5.1. Thanks to our work as an official partner with Microsoft, Reallusion is now able to offer an early look at the Kinect SDK Beta experience to all iClone Mocap Plug-in users. Kinect SDK Beta is not for commercial use yet, but you can use it for animated production and sharing (Microsoft will announce their commercial SDK policy soon). This is a huge step forward towards making Kinect a more fantastic and exceptional mocap animation tool, but certainly not the last.
iClone 5.1 is scheduled to be released in January. As appreciation for our forum users’ enthusiastic support, Reallusion would like to provide you with exclusive early access to the 5.1 Beta version of iClone. Simply follow these instructions below to become one of the first users to experience the new mocap and physics functions in iClone 5!

How to Use Microsoft SDK Beta System for Mocap
Currently, the plug-in version that you use with iClone 5 is from Open NI, which is not compatible with the Microsoft SDK Beta version. Therefore, if you want to use the Microsoft SDK Beta version, you will need to uninstall your current plug-in and re-install the new version of the plug-in. You can resume the Open NI system by doing the same procedure.
