I'm trying to make a virtual dressing room application with kinect. My problem is that I want to use poser for modeling, so I need to convert C++ from kinect to python. I have no experience in python!

Can anybody help me please?

Why are you using Python if you have no prior experience with it? WHy can't you use a language you are more familiar with?

It would be hard to answer such question. As if getting knowledge required excuses... But usually, "converting" is a bad idea.
The language is valuable only if it supports some different way of thinking...

I agree 100%.

I know precious little about Python other than that it sucks but I have heard that if you want to connect C++ and Python together there is a Boost library to help with that, presumably Boost::python. I would start at

You first problem here is not become a Python poser being a C++ fan at heart. :-)
That's why "conversion" is, maybe, not a good idea.

You can call functions in a C-DLL from python using the ctypes python library.

Or you can spawn process and get return values using the subprocess python module.

And/or you can invoke the python interpreter from C.

There are all kinds of ways to interoperate C/C++ and python. I'd look into doing that rather converting everything to python.

What do you mean by convert? Automatically or manually?
