I'm working on person tracking with the Microsoft Kinect and the Nyko Zoom attachment. I need accurate distance estimates to/between each person and, of course, the Zoom warps the Kinect image. Thus, I need to determine an intrinsic and extrinsic calibration of the Kinect with the Zoom attachment. Based on my limited experience with this, I'm assuming that image rectification needs to occur before images are processed by OpenNI. Has anyone else done this? Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks, in advance, for your time! :-)

If anyone found a way to do this (sending the rectified image to OpenNI), I would also be very interested.. :)

The calibration is done through OpenNI. What I am wondering is if anyone has attempted to rectify the warped image before sending the data to OpenNI.
