Tolerance to changes

Hi, I would like to use Trautner to control a video playback. The problem is that even in a still frame (from a camera for instance), there are blinking pixels, which provok some ugly blinking in my video playback.

So my question is: is there a way to get rid of those fake changes by making some average tolerance, and then to take only into account of the changes beyond the tolerance. I tried different things but nothing solves my problem.

Thanx

ahum… there should be a pin named threshold. thats your tolerance.

btw. i found a bug in trautner that would cause it to crash after some hours running. will upload that a soon as i’m a the data again.

I set both Tresholds to 1, but what I’m looking for is a way to stabilize the flickering output (thre’s always a chaotic flow in the output of a still frame).

you have diffmode set to 1 and use the “Diff Threshold”? both other Threshold pins and diffmode 0 are not so cool. right?!

Exactly! Both Tresholds set to 1, Diff Tresfold set to 0.999 (cause if it’s set to 1, there’s no more analysis), Hold Background activated, but Diff Mode acts as a Bang (and I don’t really understand what iiiiis it for… as Show Mask : ])

right.

type of DiffMode is currently set to bang (which is a bug). it should actually be a boolean. you can still set it to 1 by attaching an iobox set to 1.

then. the image you see should be a black/white (thresholded) image of your input.
and now DiffThreshold should work as expected.

ShowMask is there to optionally overlay the image with the mask you give trautner to work on. seen trautners helppatch? there is an explanation for the mask image.

Thanx Joreg, you light my way! But I don’t have and I’ve never had any help file for Trautner… That’s why I’m a little bit lost with it.

Thanx again

ojay…

the help file comes with the current download and is placed in help/freeframe
you sure it isnt there?

and here is the promised fix for trautner:
Trautner.rar

in the .rar are all the sources you need to compile. if you don’t want to compile it for yourself just take the Trautner.dll and put it in your /freeframes directory (overwriting the old Trautner.dll)

dll will also be included with next release!

Hi joreg,

i searched in my pc and didn’t found the Trautner help file. But thanx a lot for the rar archive, will extract that!

cheers

strange. then have a look at the helpfile attached
