Facial Tracking/ Motion Tracking

Post by jeffroig » 28 Nov 2009, 15:38

I am interested in sharing my knowledge with others about facial tracking/ Motion Tracking.
I dont want to put alot of time into something if no one else is interested.
So if you are interested then send a reply to this thread and once I see that we have atleast 10 people that are interested I will then begin some lessons into this subject.

To give you am idea on the topics I would like to cover here it is.
I will be starting with the software I use and you can download demo versions of it that are fully functional for 30 days.
Then move onto using the software, little tricks I have learned.
Then onto techniques of various types of motion capture.
Everything that I will be doing you can do with a web cam or video camera.
My plan is to show everyone that is interested how to do motion capture for a low cost and still good a good result.
No we wont be needing a motion capture suit or any elaborate camera and software so low cost software and you can get the desired results.
There is no cost to this, I just want to help everyone I can get up to speed so we can all create animations that we enjoy and have wanted to do for some time.

I have recently acquired 4 webcams with the intention of using them to turn my garage into a motion capture studio using the same software. However, I was completly unaware that they could be used for capturing facial data. I would be very keen to learn how to to this and would much appreciate your sharing of knowledge and techniques.
