I am wondering what is the preferred way of storing sequences of point
clouds in PCL.
Let me give some more explanations: I am willing to shoot a scene with a
Kinect and record (in a movie) the depth and confidence images streamed out
of the device - for later replay. As the PCD format seems to be designed for
still snapshots, how would you handle the sequence of images to make a
movie? Is the preferred answer to record a PCD file per image? Is there
another more advanced way to get a full movie in a single file?
I'm not sure if anyone else can confirm this, but we found that saving oni with NiViewer seemed to be susceptible to "hiccups" where some frames are dropped after about 30s of recording. Possibly due to disk buffer flushing, and possibly platform dependent.
We found that the best option in pcl or openni to save frames is pcl_openni_image. We also just posted our imucam utility which is compatible with that but has some extra options.
Hum... I guess at some point there will be a need for a proper format for depth + confidence (or say IR) movies. Especially with OpenNI not being a standard anymore...
Thanks for your pointers to interesting links !
PS: did you actually use IMUCam to combine IMU and SLAM in order to precondition the ICP and thus reduce the number of iterations of the ICP.
