illuA few months ago a lot of people of the Flash community talked about Marinela, a wonderduf implementation of the Haar detection face done by Ohtsuka Masakazu from the spark project community. In OpenCV, there is another face and hand detection and tracking algorithm called Camshift and described here by Gary Bradski. Camshift uses color information to track object into an image sequence. Not only it can detect object position but also retrieve information about object size and orientation. Furthermore it has the advantages to be easy to implement and computationally efficient, which are really good thing for our Flash Player and my precious time ; -) .So last week I tried to implemented it and to test if it could work in Flash.

Surfing on Wikipedia, I found this article about image moments. To be honest at the beginning it just seemed to me to be some ugly maths :-) . But believe me or not, when I read it in more details I discovered really interesting things  ;-) .

Basically moments are often used in physic in order to describe mass repartition of a body. You can derive the “idea” in image processing in substituting mass by grey level of pixel. This can give really interesting  information about pixels repartition into an image.  Indeed, it’s possible to use them in order to find center, orientation and size of a shape into an image. To summary image moments is a way to find all my schema below parameters just with pixels information:

Let’s see how it works and how to implement it in Actionscript.

A few months ago, I tried to implement a simple class in AS 3.0 to do morphing between two images. I think it could be interesting and cool to share it and explain a bit how it works. You can see below a wonderful geek’s example to illustrate the final result ;-) :

The Flash plugin is required to view this object.
