lost patch - live motion filtering

    May 26 2007 | 9:39 pm
    I have lost a patch that I found on the forum. It was amazing. It allowed me to take a still image from a live video grab and then subtract that from the feed to enable motion tracking. The patch was in two vertical sections each with 3 video screens in.
    If anyone can help me with a link to this post I would be really grateful since I have forgotten what topic it was under. Many Thanks, Freya

      This may help too, the patch took a live video input, and converted it to greyscale, it was amazing in that it was capable of only showing motion infront of the lens, it filtering out stationary information. It had many video windows open at the same time.
      I was in the process of studying this to create my own patch from which it was using, however my harddrive has corrupted and I have lost over a months work, this was a key part of the patch I built and at the moment I don't have the skill to do this bit myself.
      It was taken from this very forum under a search of somehting like motion tracking, however I have been loking for two days now and can't find it. Does any one know this patch????

      I think this was posted within the last couple of months as I remember seeing something like this and I have only been reading the board myself recently. I didn't use it as it was black and white only although the inverse stuff was cool. good luck finding it foge

      Did you check out the cv.jit library, especially it's example patches? your description sounds very much like the cv help and example patches, for that matter, most motion tracking / background subtraction solutions cut the color info as it's not needed in looking for motion. There's a nice background subtraction patch in the cv package if I remember right.

      And finally did u find the patch? A'm also interesting in such a motion tracking things and it's very interesting to see how to realize this. Greetings from Russia!

      Look at the example patch jit.op-framedifference. It doesn't look like what you are describing but it does the same thing. Max/MSP, examples, jitter-examples,video, op, jit.op-framedifference.
