Tracking blobs

In VUO, may i have any node for tracking blobs in real time images from camera ?

@ou, I’ve turned your question into a feature request, since Vuo doesn’t currently have any blob tracking built in, and that would be a great addition.

In the meantime, you may be able to use some external software that tracks blobs and sends OSC data to Vuo. One that I have heard of, but not tried myself, is KVL_Kinect_Tracker.

To implement a blob tracking node in Vuo, we’re considering integrating a piece of software called OpenPTrack. Since OpenPTrack can output UDP messages, an alternative to this feature request would be Send and receive data via TCP and UDP. It would be more general-purpose (support communicating with other things besides OpenPTrack) but would mean you’d have to handle the UDP messages from OpenPTrack within your Vuo composition, rather than having a node that converts them to tracking data for you.
