Idiot Assistance: Motion Sensing

Nov 18 2009 | 2:13 am

Having searched the site, and trying to trudge my way through the tutorials, I’m still kind of lost. All I want to do is sense motion from a live camera feed, and turn a quicktime movie on and off based on whether there’s motion or not. I’m sure its very simple, but I can’t seem to grasp it.

I think I want to use jit.change, somehow? If someone would just suggest which tutorials I should be looking at, that would help a lot.

Thanks much!
