evanist00 I don’t really understand your question. Have you changed settings in tbeta? It sounds like you might have things on when they shouldn’t be or have the sliders turned up to high on certain things. A screenshot of tbeta might help.
I ended up putting an exposed film over the web-cam and the majority of the extra blobs disappeared. I also tried the floppy disk and had similar results. I’ll be messing around with that today. The remarkable part is that the ps3eye picks up IR blobs from almost three feet away pretty well if the room is dim. The only complaint for my table right now is that my group partner’s goatee shines like north star whenever his face is over the screen. It is funny because on the tbeta trace feed, it looks ike one of those cinco de mayo skeleton masks.
I’d like to thank everyone for the responses and help. Your insights and advice have really helped expedite this project.
