Its relatively easy. The Xtion Pros are a near exact clone of the Orbbec Atras and the other similar rgbd cams, so it really just involves minor tweaking.


Actually it's the other way around - the ASUS Xtion Pro Live came first. Unfortunately, it's not available on the market any more. The  Orbbec Astras are (slightly crappier) clones of the Xtion Pro Live, and especially from the software side they are basically 100% replacable.

Also, these boards are just a bunch of poor souls looking for help without any answers arent they? lol


Are you talking about the Orbbec "3d club" forum? Yes, you're absolutely right. The support by Orbbec is basically non-existent, and they don't reply to bug reports. It's just some poor customers trying to help each other figuring out how to work around all the Astra firmware bugs. Unfortunately, the Astra is still the closest thing you can buy today to the original Xtions.
