i think so, i'm also looking at a new web-cam, my current one has gone on the frizzle, so i'm keen to see exactly which cam's are known to work with this software, to help me make the right choice.... :)
http://facetracknoir.sourceforge.net/compatibility/webcams.htm

Personally, i'd recommend just a plain and simple Logitech C120 again..
I based my decision on this: http://cowboyfrank.net/webcams/
Funny site, funny guy, but so far, he's been quite right for me every time.

Cool cowboyfrank website Eexhaton  8) , I even found my web camera
" Microsoft LifeCam Cinema HD " with Microsoft Windows Live software included which
can make you do very funny things with your face  :D
Damn only for $54.77 ?

Hi Uufflakke,

Sorry I didn't answer before, was kinda busy 8)
I understand that you have FaceTrackNoIR running. You see your face in the video-widget and you have the 'fake TrackIR' option selected. If you don't get the yellow outline, that means the tracker cannot find your face. This is usually caused by insufficient lighting. While trying to find your face, the faceAPI indeed used a lot of CPU-power...

What hardware and software are you using?

V4Friend

P.S.: I have updated the website, so now it contains more information and the downloads are easier to find. I'm still working on some kind of manual, to place on the website too.


Have been experimenting a bit now and followed your advice by using some extra light and now I do see the yellow tracking lines on my ugly face with 22 FPS. And in game it works also. So that's good news.  :) Of course it needs a lot of tweaking to get things right. But at least it works even with my worthless few dollar camera (a Canyon).
But just with a bright light source shining directly on my face and that's not the case in my house. During daytime light comes from the left and after dark light comes from the right.
Of course I can attach a Maglite flashlight to a cap or headset but then I've got something similar like a Freetrack setup.  ;)
I'm glad that I got this software running but in my case I stick to Freetrack.
Thanx anyway en succes ermee!

Hi! :)

the idea seems very promising, i downloaded & installed everything i've found.. base program, update, ippcore, headtracking, facetracking, but regardless of order of installation i get always an "Error loading ippm library - No DLLs were found on waterfall procedures"..  ??? but is not something happened to others here, i think..

win7 32 user here, unfortunately my xp partition was snafu'd some time ago, so i can't try now  :-X

thanks in advance if there is some hint or so, i'm really interested in trying this program  :)

Thank you for this program. Brings alot of use!

Problem for me is. It doesn't want to work well at all! I use the tracker source as Face API and Protocol as Fake TrackIR, and the engine doesn't want to load up. And there is no tracking overlay in my webcam. It worked for a little while. Now it just doesn't want to cooperate. It only initializes with FTNoir server and FTNoir Client selected.

Im pretty sure I've installed every thing correctly. Any body have any clues on this?

EDIT: Its starting to work better now. Now the problem is it doesn't want to track my head smoothly. It jumps about every where on its own accord.

What type/brand webcam do you have?
And how many FPS does it give you in FaceTrack? If it shows a red number, you probably want to increase FPS.

@A1_Phoenix: Does the Seeingmachines FaceApi demo work for you?
Try that first, if you have'nt :)

Im using a Microsoft VX-3000. FPS is normally ok. Lighting is normal at its best as I can get it. I does fluctuate at times.

@HH_Cipher: This may help you to tweak autoexposure settings, it did help me,

http://www.free-track.net/hardware/webcam.php#Microsoft

Just go to VX 1000 and you will see an ENABLE BUTTON, download the application, open your lifecam advanced settings, run the .exe called EnBtn, and you should be able to untick exposure. Hope it helps, Mate

A1 Phoenix, I had the same error.  Uninstall everything, and make sure you uninstall the "Intel(R) IPP Run-Time Installer 5.3 Update 4 for Windows* on IA-32" also.  Then install the FaceAPI Demo only, which should reinstall the IPP runtime library correctly.  Test that before installing FaceTrackNoIR.  I posted this error here also:

it might be helpful if we could get a list of webcams that are known to work with it - this'll also help to identify what potential differences we could expect... :)
