Good to see the positive responses.
Here is a basic sample of head tracking using 4 markers and a webcam.
The process is simple and easy.

I'm impressed that this is possible. Now I have been really interested!

This is just the basic tracking as things progress in the training I would like to show more detailed tracking.

That would be nice to see. If you get a chance to do a few tutorials.

Pretty impressive!
Three questions.
How many tracking markers can this handle?
Can you apply tracking markers around the mouth (let's say 6 of them) to capture
detailed mouth movement?
Are you on the left or the right? :lol:

Amazing! I have the same questions of Steinie.... Also: We can track moves with just one camera? And we can put this in all body parts?

Thank you!

Lets see there is a total of 22 marker points for the face.
So yes the mouth is covered as well as the eyes and brow and cheeks.

As for body capturing the points are at each joint.

I am the better looking of the two...HAHAHA

The facial tracking with markers was done with the same software you noted before? The two camera, no markers, high contrast needed one? The versatility to use markers or not would be good.
