No, I’m not offended (and I like the expression “human error” ;-)).
I’ve retried it, and now I can describe more precisely what is happening:
All settings (in the inspector of ColorTracker) are saved, but the color of the tracked object is not saved. When I set the Tracker to follow a blue object it works, but when I save and re-open it, it isn’t set any more to “blue”; I have to set the tracker again to follow the blue object.
I hope it gets clearer now, what kind of problem i get using ColorTracker.
hmmm, first of all sorry, it isn’t the ColorTracker, it is the CamShiftTracker that causes my problem - sorry!
Now here what happens:
I put a blue object under the Square in the middle(the ROI), push “init tracker”-button 1 (I have copied the 4-Button-Field from the help-patch), push it again and now the patch is tracking the blue object.
When I save and reload the patch, this “information” is lost and the blue object isn’t tracked any more - i have to place it again under the ROI, push button 1 twice.
My question is if there is a way to keep this information stored, so if I start the patch, the tracking of the blue object starts directly.
Sorry for the misleading information in my first two posts - now I hope it is clearer.
and i am afraid i think there is no way to achieve what you want with the CamShiftTracker. the information that the tracker uses after initialisation is not reflected in a pin on its node and therefore cannot be saved.
