Using OpenNI ExtendedAPI in an AstraSDK application

I know that some advanced settings about IR and camera gain are only available in the OpenNI Extended API,
and that the AstraSDK is going to include them someday.

My application is based on AstraSDK but i need some of those settings, so here are the questions:

  • Is it possible to use both SDKs together, given that the streams are only opened with AstraSDK?
    Ideally I would create an extra OpenNI device just to use the extended API.

  • If the former approach is not possible, can i start opening the device in OpenNI, set the extended settings, close it
    and open again in AstraSDK? Will the IR and gain settings be retained or just reset?

Thank you so much for replying.
