Compile PCL with Visual Studio 2013

After receiving my Kinect for Windows v2, I found that I can only play around sample codes from Kinect SDK, but not several popular software like (Sknect or ReconstructMe). Even when I want to write some codes with PCL, but found that no OpenNI2 driver or grabber is well provided, and the tutorial app (in-hand-scanner or open-ni viewer) are not provided in pre-built binary, too. That is the reason why I compile PCL from sources. 

Development experience between Windows and Linux

It all started in 2012 when I had a chance to port my all image processing codes from Windows to Linux. That includes all C++ codes with lots of GUI implementation, not to mention several COM model architecture and several Windows-only technologies. For now, I'm very happy to work between these two platforms under the same code base. This might be very normal to some of you, but with 10+ years of Windows codes, it is still a struggle to migrate all to Linux in 4 months. Here is the story:

Yi ToolSets

There are four comprehensive tools included in Yi-ToolSet, please follow download link to try. Yi-ToolSet is a C++ SDK which serves several basic and advanced image processing needs, including:

  • Brightness, Contract, Exposure

    Highlight/Shadow recovery

    Tone Curve adjustment


    Color space conversion

    Local Details

    Local Contrast/Local Tone mapping

    Split tone

In this toolset, we utilize Qt to implement cross platform UI. OpenCV, OpenMP and Intel TBB are used to make parallel computing possible. We also implement our own memory management, such that it is ok to handle virtually any size of bitmap in resource limited environment (Android, iOS or embedde systems.)

They are available in source codes or SDK, on Windows, Linux, iOS and Android. These demo programs are currently available in Windows platform, will provide Linux/Android platform later.
