has anyone an idea how to do something like a topological skeleton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topological_skeleton) with vvvv? The idea is to basically get a vector skeleton for any binary image. This could be very useful for character recognition, hand detection, optical finger tracking, … actually, I can think of a lot of nice things with this - just imagine using $P recognizer with the cleaned topological skeleton and you immediately have a very powerful shape recognition and tracking engine.
I thought that maybe the way to go is using OpenCV, but I really have no experience using that. So, Elliot, vux, anybody, any idea how to do that, or is it already somewhere and I just didn’t find it?
