ManosOsc

Great for live control of sound and video! Track your hands and fingers using the Leap Motion Controller and output coordinates over OSC (Open Sound Control). Use the default OSC message format in your own projects, or choose a format used by your favorite applications--including Isadora and Animata. And there's MIDI support too!

Using OSC, you can control nearly every VJ/live graphics and sound app around--Max/MSP/Jitter, Ableton Live (with Max for Live), PureData, VDMX, TouchDesigner, Modul8, Resolume, VVVV, Quartz Composer, and more--with far more precision than MIDI. A wide range of other software also supports OSC, from game authoring environments like Unity to creative-coding frameworks like Processing, openFrameworks, and Cinder.

The latest update adds the ability to record scripts for After Effects and Maya. This is still an experimental feature, but if you're an animator you'll want to try it out!

What's New

Version 1.1.5
  • Script recording for After Effects and Maya (experimental)
  • Standardized default message format for hands and fingers (old version still available via settings)

Ratings & Reviews

  • Works great, difficult to track individual fingers.

    I'm having a hard time controlling data with individual fingers. The way they're numbered seems to be based upon their relative orientation. For example, while it's tracking all five fingers on my right hand, my index finger will change from 0-0 to 0-1 to 0-2 making it difficult to use the data elsewhere. Otherwise, the connectivity is very simple and the documentation and examples are great, I had no trouble getting this setup with Processing and MaxMSP.

    Honestly this could use better documentation. Does anyone know how to use ManosOSC with Reaktor? I have outputs showing in the program but not sure how to properly select which index to route. Also I'd love to see a sample for how to implement it's output into Processing. the sample executable that came with it doesn't work all the time.
