Playing with Marilena

this is my first try with OpenCV port to Adobe Flash (Marilena). Meaning the entire face recognition has been done with Flash/ActionScript

For you who doesn’t know yet about Marliena, please have a look at my previous post “MariLena : OpenCV port to ActionScript 3 (AS3 / Flash)”

Marilena : OpenCV for Flash on Vimeo.

Playing around with the port of OpenCV face recognition to ActionScript 3. In this test I did use Mario Klingemann’s optimized version of Marilena (code name of the port).

Would be great to have this kind of feature on Glasses seller website 🙂

next step try to get the Roll rotation 🙂

Mario Klingemann’s Marlena version could be download here : http://www.quasimondo.com/archives/000687.php#000687

Deface : AS3 Face Detection BASED on OpenCV

As my previous post about MariLena (openCV port to AS3), I made more research about it and found this project Deface, which is pretty much the same as MariLena, except that this is not a port of openCV, as the developer says “it’s written from scratch”. so far it’s using Haar cascade file as OpenCV.

I haven’t tried it that much, here is an example : LiveExample
It seems to be a bit slower that MariLena, but I wouldn’t be sure at all

MariLena : OpenCV port to ActionScript 3 (AS3 / Flash)

I dreamed about it, they finally did it ^^.

A crazy guy named Ohtsuka Masakazu have ported the face detection part of OpenCV to AS3 and added the source code named Marilena to the Spark Project a few weeks ago (can’t believe I haven’t notice before today)

Mario Klingemann from Quasimondo.com already made some optimization (see his blog)

I made some test today with a stupid texture, starting from Mario’s webcam example and that’s just fun !!! Well yes, it’s still slow (15 fps on a good computer), but this is just the beginning as I believe that a lot of optimization can still be done, and so what anyway ? It’s flash, it’s everywhere, nothing to install, the fun is there without downloading anything. I really believe in it ! Now with this and FLARToolKit (ARToolKit port to AS3), augmented reality and computer vision is really getting into Flash for sure, and it’s going to give to the community some great opportunity !! I’m looking forward about it

Please, have a test at Mario’s example here

and take also a look at what they did at Squidder.com
