DELPHI face recognition

I want to develop a project doing some 3D avatars that follow a webcam.
My first step would be recognize some parts of human face.
- any SDK/DLL or sample to do it ?

Guess you don't want people to have to wear yellow dots on their face? - only way I know how to do it :-)

regions of an image are easier to find if they stand out. eg. if the user were wearing a black mask, and had yellow sticky dots near their eyes, and a red sticky dot on their nose, and several blue sticky dots near their face...
That sort of high contrast (black vs colour) makes locating regions a lot easier.
If however, you wish to distinguish between bob's face and jim's face then you're going to find this hard to write for yourself, and buying a tried and true bit of code is the best option.

If you wish to know when someone is talking, then the contrast of skin colour vs slightly darker open mouth and determining that this is a "motion" event  is still going to be tough. I saw something on Discovery channel a while back, but no code snippets that I know of :-)

here's some links I came across a while back that may / may not be of use to you.
