tracking objects

this is a newbie question,
sorry for my English, I am trying to make sense of cv.jit objects but I do no have the knowledge.
i am looking for something to track the presence on a room with a web cam, somebody recently showme something done in processing with JMyron the program is call "Myron,CameraasMouse, basically what it does it draws a ball in the screen that resembles the situation of the person in front of the camera, when the person moves to the right the ball moves to the right, when the person moves to another location the ball follows, giving x, and y coordenates of the ball.

I am trying to do something similar as well. But I want
to be able to track dancers on the screen…

I use mostly MSP, so I am not as familiar with Jitter.
I have searched the form for info and how to get started and
it seems like cv.jit is the way to go. Would anyone be
so kind as to post a basic patch that I could use as a starting
point?

Also, does anyone have any recommendations of what kind of
camera works best for such things?

the cv.jit help files should be all you need. As for the camera, it really
doesn’t matter but a firewire that works natively with your computer is
helpful.

I see, anyone have any recommendations on an inexpensive
video conferencing camera for use with an XP machine?

i tested many usb cameras in jitter land. and i work with some industrial
usb cameras outside.
i dont like usb, before its to late i suggest you try a firewire unibrain
camera.

but there are some usb types which get good feedback which i havnt had
checked.
the Philips SPC900NC and the ps3 eyetoy. the second has an amazing spec (not
only for the price) but xp drivers are rare.
