The Flame Tracker is a Python-based video processing application designed for the combustion research community. With its Graphical User Interface (GUI), it is possible to edit a video and track a flame or a bright object on a frame by frame basis. Flame characteristics such as position, spread rate, length and area can be obtained by isolating a flame from its background with different methods.
The Flame Tracker is open source and cross platform; however, the MacOS and Windows versions have slightly different codes for the GUI visualization. The ‘script’ folder contains both versions.
The code (Python-based) works on Windows, MacOS and Linux, and it’s available on Github:
The instructions are available on Github as well:
