FaceTrackNoIR v200 released!

Introduction

Your support is greatly appreciated:

Almost free

FaceTrackNoIR has been around for over five years and, judging by the positive feedback, you still like it very much. As you may know by now, the core program is not completely free any more. Please let us explain why (though a micropayment is a tiny fee, for such a great piece of software).

 

Personal misfortune

For almost 30 years I (Wim) have suffered from a progressive and painful disease called Arthritis. Unfortunately, that was not enough: I was diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago. Luckily I responded well to the chemo- and radiotherapy and I survived. One problem though: I lost my left leg as a result. Since then I have managed to work only part-time and our financial situation suffers greatly from it. You will understand that this also affects my wife Mary and my twin-daughters a lot.

 

Positive attitude

Through the years I have kept my positive nature and because of that, I created FaceTrackNoIR in my spare time. It is a very nice hobby and your positive feedback makes it even more fun. Mary came up with the idea to ask a small fee for FaceTrackNoIR and I agreed for her to set it up. Making her and my girls sole beneficiaries is my way to thank them for their support.

 

We hope you won't mind contributing a little and we want to thank you in advance for your support!
