Hello Alvaro,

The OptiTrack SDK (at least the version I'm using in my 3DUI Framework) is a COM assembly which is immediately usable through .NET. It's not a native .NET assembly of course, but the .NET COM/Interop system allows such libraries to be consumed without any special effort.

Indeed, if you examine the TrackIRTestbed sample, you'll see a reference to Interop.OptiTrack.dll. That dll was automagically created when I referenced the OptiTrack COM assembly. Essentially, the Interop system creates the .NET wrapper you're referring to.

If NaturalPoint has issued a new SDK, then I'm betting it too is a COM library. If so, using it within .NET is as simple as installing the OptiTrack SDK, and adding a reference to the updated OptiTrack library to your .NET project. You'll find COM libraries under the COM tab of the Add Reference dialog box.

The thing is, that new camera sdk is not com, is c/c++ so must have a wrapper for using in c# ,  and wrapping the dll is difficult and tedious, so i will wait untill natual point publish an exaple.

Thank you.
