Show Kinect webcam feed while also using body tracking at the same time in Unity?

Hi, I've been playing with kinect DK and have setup body tracking SDK in Unity. When trying to show Kinect webcam feed while also using body tracking at the same time, I got "catching exception for background thread result = K4A_RESULT_FAILED" and can't bring up body tracking.

I'm wondering if it's possible to do body tracking and show the camera feed from the same kinect divice at the same time in Unity?

    Hello @f1yoda Thanks for reaching out on this forum.

    Could you please add more info on the error such as any video recording of the issue or error screen grabs showing the active or live logs?

    As of now we have few resources to get started on body tracking, i hope you have already gone through these docs:
