We disabled the projector prior to sampling using
from (librealsense2 c++).
This is also shot at the lowest gain setting of 16 on the scale 16 -> 248.
Could there be any sort of post processing associated with the Y16 bit depth that isn't present in the Y8?
In general any frames received from the pipeline while processing in Y16 appear more pixelated than there Y8 counterparts.
Also if one compares Y8 and Y16 frames sampled at the same resolution, frame rate, with a static environment, the images do not line up with one another.
Rather one looks more shifted than the other which suggests some sort of perspective correction is being applied.
