FaceOsc Templates

2012 Dan Wilcox, et al.

for the Spring 2012 IACD class at the CMU School of Art

Templates for receiving face tracking Open Sound Control messages from Kyle McDonald's FaceOSC wrapper around Jason Saragih’s FaceTracker

Download FaceOSC and get started with a template project for one of the following creative coding environments:

Make sure FaceOSC is running and a face is detected (face mesh is drawn). The face detection runs very slowly (0.5 fps) while searching for a face. It speeds up to around 30fps once one is found. Also, make sure you face is evenly lit.

Further info:

  • FaceOSC uses port 8338 by default for OSC communication
  • the FaceOSC window size is 640 x 480

OpenFrameworks Version

If you are using an older version (007, ...) of OpenFrameworks then you want to use a git tag of this repo for that version. You can select the tag in the Github "Current Branch" menu or clone and check it out using git.

For example, the following commands will clone and switch to the OF 007 tagged version:

git clone git://github.com/CreativeInquiry/FaceOSC-Templates.git
cd FaceOSC-Templates
git checkout of-007

The current master branch shoudl work with the current OF and a tag will only be created when there is an appreciable change in OF, so there may not be a tag for every version of OF.
