Previously the patch I was working with used live video feed to detect movement, when detected it would output a video to MadMapper. I used an example from a forum post on motion detection. I then used the add on Syphon and it’s example patcher to output the video to MadMapper. Screen Shot 2016-04-23 at 15.24.09.png

After creating this, I needed to separate three zones on the live camera feed to detect movement individually. I used a Camera and Zones example, which filters the video feed with threshold making it black and white and easier to detect movement. This was then divided into three camera zones or hotspots. The result is the ability to detect and isolate interaction which each of the three models.
