Library Combo

Open framework add ons are written by generous people, who are helping make open framework a better place. However, no one is payed to write these addons and they can be in any state of development. The prompt for this assignment was to get two different libraries compiling in the same of sketch. After a long process of trial and error I ended up combining ofxOpticalFlowFarmback with ofxpostprocessing. Optical flow analyses movement based on direction and post processing turns whatever is being rendered into a gl mesh and applies filters to them. I selected these two libraries because I am interested in using camera vision to analyse motion and create interaction through that motion and because I am interested in learning more about how to use open gl to create fast custom filters.
