olala , huuuuge !!!
Great job , Amit , sounds very promising like a much awaited improvement !!
# Modularized tracking of fingers/objects/fiducials.
1/what do you mean by templates :
rectangles area tracked & define by a specific size ?
A template is simply a structure of some parameters, like the rectangle details and ID details.
By drawing the rectangles, we assign the maximum and minimum size to a template. If a particular blob belongs to that , we assign the defined ID in the template to that blob.
2/ In your blog , you mention : ID Assignment Rules :
Does it means you are using TUIO protocole to send data ? ID n°…
Yes, this uses TUIO to send data. The ID assignment rules are for distinguishing between different types of blobs. Say we can program our applications, if the ID belongs to 180-200, then this is an object, so draw a rectangle. Or similar things.
3/ once you define your template area , does your program calculate the orientation of the object (& send the angle ??)
Yes, it calculates the orientation of the object. But the angle parameter sending is not yet done now. Its on my list =).
4/ in the video , it seems that your object is composed by 4 blobs , so can a template also be a blob combo ?
Nope, a template can not consist of different blob combos. My video was simply for testing. if you see the Tracked Panel , this was only one blob. with always varying size , but with a particular ID assigned to it.
Hope I am clear. If you still have any doubts, let me know.
