ColorTracker optimum settings for IR tracking

Hi all.

I’ve been playing around with the colorTracker for a project tracking an IR blob. I did have it configured a certain way that seemed to have significantly better performance than what I’ve changed it to now. I tried and tried and tried and tried to find the ‘magic’ settings again but have failed.

I adjust my camera settings so all I get is a black background with the IR blob as white. I assume this makes tracking easier. (?)

Is there such as thing as the ‘magic’ setting for IR detection with colorTracker? If so, what are they?

Will tweaking the TCTolerances make much differences to performance?

Has anyone else experienced performance differences with different settings?

I can’t see any, but is there a performance difference between colorTracker and the contour tracker?

Too many questions in one post? If so, sorry.
