What kind of algorithm uses the tracker programm to track? - Jul 24, 2013 at 3:47AM

Hi Doug, hi all,
I got another question. This time about how tracker decides if the marked match is similar to the template or not.
For a better understanding and to analyse trackers inaccuracy of measurement I would like to know how exactly tracker finds the right section of the video.

I know so far:
I tell the programm to search for the template and it compares the pixels. But how can I know this is exactly the right point?
I know the Automark value (standard is 4) has something to do with the precision of the track.

Can you explain how it works or tell me where I can find these information?

Thanks a lot
