Post subject: Free Face Tracking - or TrackIR without additional hardware

For those of us who don't want to spent a lot of money for TrackIR, this is a cheap alternative, because all you need is a webcam:

Make sure to download the latest Beta-Version, it includes the files for the FSX.

It tried it and it works. Since I only have a build-in webcam in my laptop I cannot judge how it works with a standard webcam, but with the laptop its a bit shaky but useable....

Hi Slow and yep, Gunter and I have been talking about Free Track as well. I want to get this FTrack built and if all goes well, document the process as instruction for all here at CC. Wink

There's quite a few vid's on YouTube for FreeTrack and from what I can tell, isn't hard to build, but setting it up takes some time.
