Hi the groovvvvy gang,
Although my problem is “kinect related” I am trying to make this question/thread into something more general that hopefully will also help others.
I am tracking a HAND position using Kinect + openNI, trying to detect if your hand is moving forward or moving backward. I thought it would be simple to take current Hand Z position minus that same Z position but “framedelayed”, this should work in theory… however hand gesture are jerky/jittery and so it doesn’t work AND I’m thinking that my Math/Physics approach to the problem might be wrong… And this is what turns this into a general VVVV question:
How do you check if a value is generally increasing or decreasing in VVVV?
OR How do you detect a movement’s direction?
AND as much as you can DAMPER a value in VVVV,is there anyway to ACCELERATE a value change (if I know that the value’s “trend” is to decrease then can I not “accelerate this to 0”)
Forgive me if this just stems from me being too stoned during Math class.
