I am receiving data from a Kinect sensor and attempting to convert the data into coordinates relative to a pre created map using python. However, it doesn't seem that tf supports converting point cloud2.

I forgot to mention that I'm trying to do this in Python. All other solutions ive serm were done on c++. Pcl, doesn't have a Python method to transform pointclouds.
