Facetracking

hi guys

I have a project where we have to use the vvvv program with the kinect. and i want to start with the facetracking, but the detectobject node is missing…is there another option to get the node?
Im using the vvvv_45beta33.3X64

Thanks

DetectObject is not available in the x64 build only in the x86 build.

thanks for your advice!:)

but my problem now is, how can I save the single pictures? I do connect the wirter node to the renderer but it seems that the whole screen will be saved, and I just only need the single pictures.

thanks in advance

i am afraid i am not sure what you mean with “whole screen” vs “single picture”. please see if you find your answer here: capturing output otherwise try to ask a more specific question or even post a patch that demonstrates your problem.

When I connect the writer node to the renderer, it should save my image, right? but as you can see on the attached image, the whole renderer screen was saved, but i do need only the single photo…im using the facetracking patch which is already in the addons…im sorry if its difficult to understand, but english ist not my first language…

thanks

for us to be able to see your image, you need to press the Insert-button after you uploaded it. Just edit your post and do so…

well, then don’t connect the Writer to the renderer but to the pin where you have the single image.

I still don’t know which patch you’re referring to. please upload it here or specify the path to it in the \addonpack

Hi all,
completely new to vvvv, and really liking it.

i also have a question on this patch, as i would like to be able to write the image taken to a folder with incremental numbering and then import randomly picked images back to vvvv to be able to mix them afterwards.

any suggestions welcome,
so far i am able to write the picture via writer(ex.texture), but i can’t figure out, how to save as increment, lets say face_1, face_2 etc.

thx a lot

the patch comes from the book, “prototyping Interfaces”,

Hi,

I patched a simple demo to save pictures with incrementing filenames. See the attachmemt.
The key is the Counter (Animation) node in combination with FormatValue (String)

hi korriander,
works like a charm, thx so much. have to get an installation ready for saturday and this just saved me on the vvvv side of the problem.
by the way, loving the book.
super arbeit.
danke

Hi all

A question, where are the single images? are they saved in a folder?

thnx in advance

hi,

the images will be saved in the images folder inside the patch folder.

can I get the images directly to my folder and not to the patch folder? ist it possible? Which node do I need?
