about

3) Install Orbbec sensor driver (tested with v4.3.0.4)
4) Extract the OpenNI-Windows-x64-2.3 folder into your Orbbec driver installation dir

6) Edit the OpenNI.ini within the contribution's openni folder and change the Repository path to .../YourOrbecDriverInstallationFolder/OpenNI-Windows-x64-2.3/Redist/OpenNI2/Drivers. Don't forget to use slashes instead of blackslashes)

the RGB node doesn't work for me. it just get red. somebody else have this issue?

If the RGB node is not working, than you have the "Orbbec Astra Pro".
This Camera Model don't get the RGB Stream over OPENNI2.

@nrsz:
there seems to be a new info regarding the problem with the rgb node:
https://3dclub.orbbec3d.com/t/astra-pro-rgb-stream-using-openni/1015/4

@all:
I updated the dx11.particles pack. It now has a wrapper and an emitter node for the orbbec astra. See latest version on github.

seems like the plugin doesn't work with the actual dx11-pack. can someone confirm this?
against which dx11-version was this plugin compiled?

2021 and this is still a handy and nice Plugin for working with Astra and DX11.Particle but is the Texture spreadable? - I connect 2 Orbbecs and get 2Spreads of the Value Pins from the Nodes but only one Texture. - Do you have a solution? Is there an easy workaround? Or is this all outdated and there are other solutions?

this might fix problems with latest dx11 pack:

Extract the contribution’s openni folder into the dx11 pack plugin folder (…\packs\dx11\nodes\plugins)
Download DX11 and DX11 Particles packs
Download & install the Orbbec Astra driver https://orbbec3d.com/develop/ (tested with v 4.3.0.17)
Install OpenNI https://structure.io/openni (tested with v2.2.0.33 Beta)
