Default Face Tracking

i recently came across a program on a site that allowed you not to use a cap/clip to use a face tracking software/program.
I'm still using the demo but its working very well with DCS, nearly as smooth as my clip, but I haven't got it as smooth yet, only had it an hour or two.
my question is it uses the opentrack/freetrack system, but in using it I need to have this 3rd party website open and run that before the system will start, which I don't want to do.
(its a well known site, not dodgy LOL, that we probably all use)
now I'm not trying to pirate it or anything like that, and I have ask the dev on the forum if it can be downloaded somewhere else as a straight program to run seperatly like opentrack.
is it possible opentrack itself will do this?
sorry for vagueness but not sure if I can say where it is, maybe I can as we see it a lot here?

Sounds a bit like facetrackNoIR I played with a while back, but I found it rather unreliable

http://facetracknoir.sourceforge.net/home/default.htm

It's an open source project so have a go.

Facetracknoir doesn’t require internet access while running so that can’t be it. Which program is it?

I meant is sounded similar to that, and was suggesting facetrack as a standalone non-trial option.

Sorry- I wasn’t arguing with you, just trying to figure out which program he is using to be able to help him.


I use facetracknoir and it works fine once it’s configured properly. It works with the tracking clips and hats too (one day I’ll make one). The only issue I have with it is that it tracks eyes and mouth to determine face position. When you take a drink or rub your face or somehow obscure it from the camera it can get messed up when it finds your face again. A quick stop and start of the tracker and it’s back to normal.
I have a couple buttons on my mouse programmed to 1. Freeze the tracker, and 2. Reset the tracker
