    Default motion capture balls?????

    hello all, im currently researching a few thesis ideas in my head...

    and i was hoping ye might all be able to answer a few quick questions. my thesis isnt in video its in music technology, but my questions are video related..

    i have a camera... i want this camera to read the distance between me and the camera...

    a) would i need one of the motion capture balls? for this to be a reality also what type of camera would suffice.

    b) what noob software exists that would help achieve my goal....


    what i want from the camera is simply a read out of my movement. i.e. my approximate distance from the camera.. as i wish to output these values in real time to another application....

    any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.........

    also what are the motion capture balls called? i would just simply need one in each hand. what is the significance if the balls. could it be my hand instead of the ball?

    3d motion capture is bleeding egde film technology.

    I think it needs multiple cameras and custom software and would be very hard to botch. But I am only guessing really.

    Looks undooable to me -
