It's time to gather again over a warm computer! This time Isadora's creator Mark Coniglio will tell you everything he knows about Isadora's core motion tracking actor, Eyes++. Using nothing more than Isadora and a normal video camera, you'll learn how to track people or objects, using techniques like color tracking or background removal. We'll discuss more sophisticated techniques like using infra-red cameras that allow you to project images on to the people or things you're tracking.

See you on Friday for another lively session!
As promised - happy to help anyone with motion tracking; eyes, eyes++, kinect, real sense, etc.
I also have some blogs with tutorials and videos: https://vjskulpture.wordpress.com/?s=motion+tracking&submit=Search

i have uploaded 3 actors on the plugin page that could help with the tracking settings:
-Visualization Blob Target
- Visualization Tracking zone
- Simple Stage Coordinate (0-100)

I've incorporated this into my project using the NDI actor to create the Liminal Performance Space and had success tracking a performer in Chicago here in my studio in Portland. I'd like to know if there is a way to capture a still from the Vimeo stream using the same actor used in this tutorial to mix the still and moving image in the effects mixer to create a mask. This would be very helpful going forward with my experiments with remote performance and open up a whole raft of possibilities for real time interactivity for artists sheltering in place. THANKS in advance for any help with this.

@nandada I don't mean Vimeo stream-SKYPE stream is what I meant. Shelter in place has turned my brain into a chaos

Can you use the Capture Stage to Picture actor to grab a still image of the stage? The picture then becomes available to the Picture Player actor allowing you to use that still as a background?
