here is a face detector macro. it should help you if your on a mission to line something up to your facial features. this is just some extra bulge fun but there are a lot of possibilities here.

for instance measuring the distance between lets say your eyes and nose and cross referencing that with other saved data like radius centroid etc.. makes it possible to get biometric facial detection working. biometric meaning tracking only my head.

I wondered who would get down and dirty first in the forum with the Face Detector patch.

Honours to you , dust :-).

There are some great example drop in compositions for this new facility in QC too.

The recently posted problem reported concerning SC and Face Detector prompted me to look anew at this posting of yours. I'm very pleased to find that although I'm still stuck with a bit of kit that doesn't do video input as well as it ought to do, that RII can feed an image that can be modified with your patches.

Neat work Dust! How is this accomplished under the hood in the macro patch? OpenCV? Javascript? Something for our anonymous friends.

Re: face detector (Composition by dust)

im not exactly sure how apple's face core stuff is done. its not really explicit i guess in terms of what frameworks they use. i will go out on a limb and say they use some sort of cascade trained model seeing that feature's are extracted as well and it works for most people. i could be wrong however. recognition is done many different ways now. the last i looked into things like image recognition SURF is something i was investigating.
