Face Recognizer

I was hoping to use the new FaceRecognizer class in opencv 2.4 http://docs.opencv.org/trunk/modules/contrib/doc/facerec/
Does anyone know if the opencv2 wrapper will be updated for this or if there’s a way to incorporate the opencv2.4 lib directly into an openframeworks project in xcode?

Sort of new to OF, so apologies if this is a dumb question, but I haven’t been able to find any solutions out there.

A little bg: I’m trying to extract all frames of a specific actor’s face from a movie file. The Haar detection methods work to identify all faces, but I want to limit it to one person.


If you’re willing to do a little bit of legwork you can definitely use ofxCv https://github.com/kylemcdonald/ofxCv to access new features in OpenCV 2.4

You can build OpenCV yourself by downloading it and following the build instructions there (it’s just a few command line scripts) and then drop that into the ofxCv addons lib folder.
