[PD] video tracking how advanced?

Hi thanks for the replies,

Yeah unfortunately Eyesweb is closed source.

I've spent quite a long time with Eyesweb and it would be a shame to 
loose all that knowledge. I might have to think about using two 
machines, one with Windows and Eyesweb and one with Linux & PD, although 
this isn't an ideal solution.

Also I'm not sure if my 'Winfast VC 100 XP' capture card will run on 
Linux, but that's a separate issue really.

Also I can't try out PiDiP properly as I am on Windows, unless I use a 
Linux live cd, which is a pain.

I'd like to get away from Windows entirely, but not sure I can do what I 
need without Eyesweb.

Hmm, difficult to know what to do there.
