This Drive-By workshop is an introduction to video tracking using Isadora software. Learn how to track a moving object with a web camera, kinect, or external video camera, and use the data that is collected to control different aspects of video or sound. Participants will learn to troubleshoot the pitfalls of video tracking, and are introduced to the concepts behind improved methods using the Kinect stereoscopic infra-red camera that allows for depth mapping and human skeleton tracking, along with knowledge of how to use OSC mapping to send tracking data into other softwares.

Participants receive temporary full software licences. Please bring your own laptops. Mac and PC users welcome.  Basic familiarity with Isadora software is required. Participants will need to prepare some video and audio clips to bring to the workshop. It is recommended (though not essential) to bring a camera other than the built in camera on your laptop. Kinect cameras not required, but also recommended if you have a strong interest in the field.
