Is there a object tracking software?

  1. Mar 20, 2013 #1
    I'm doing experiment of a small moving object. The observation is made through a digital camera with microscope installed in front. I want to study the motion of it and I already recorded a video of it's motion. The next thing comes to track the trajectory and record the position of the object in each frame. Is there a software to do this for thousands of frames at once, instead of ME picking out the point in each frame? The hard thing for the software might be to identify one special point in the object to track and afterwards do the thing for a series of frames. Does anyone know such kind of tool? It must exist, I believe. Thank you~

    You might want to look into something like OpenTLD.
