great new site!
Im working on a patch where i want to ‘sense’ a room through motion tracking and use the tracking data to control parameters of the patch.
So i have a few questions regarding this:
So far ive managed to utilise the trautner freeframe to analyse movement. Im simply monitoring when there is a change in output values of the trautner and using this onchange to generate random numbers that are mapped to paramters which have an effect on the gfx.
Right now im using a 3chip dv cam in low light levels with slow exposure so i can pick up movement in the dark. When i go to set up the installation in a weeks time im told the room will be very dark and so i will have the use of a cam with nightshot or Infra-red.
Will the traunter still work with a cam with these settings? i will not have a chance to test before so id like to know if you can successfully use the traunter with infra red without any pitfulls.
Also i would like to know if there is a reliable way of tracking specific movement of bodies through a room with VVVV. What i really want to do is to track a room for movement and translate that in a meaningful way. A simple example would be that if a person moves across the camera field from left to right a quad moves from left to right too. Is this kind of operation possible, if so any leads?
