OpenPose Unity Plugin

OpenPose represents the first real-time multi-person system to jointly detect human body, hand, facial, and foot keypoints (in total 135 keypoints) on single images.

This repository is developed to create an OpenPose plugin for Unity users. It uses OpenPose version 1.5 or newer and provides formatted OpenPose output and some examples.


This is an alpha release, everything is subject to change. The plugin will finally be available in Unity Assets store in the future.
