    Video object recognition: Is it worth it to learn new language for OpenCV?

    Hello everyone,
    I am a beginner+ if I could say that.
    A question to an advanced programmer: I am planning to create a program that automatically identifies an object in a live streamed video (compact ball, always the exact same object in video that I define in advance), and follow its movement, as well as a second object in the same manner, compared to a certain fixed third object.
    I might want to zoom in/out.
    I am used to C, and I must learn R for professional reasons. Where do I start from? Is there another language that makes it easier for me to do this program that is worth trying?
    As a beginner, I am a little bit scared of making all the effort in C for example and find out after hundreds of hours that it might take me another year to finish this program.... So I am looking for a good start. Any ideas?

    How about this for a start.
    opencv r programming language - Google Search

    C might be easier to start with, and you'll make steady progress, but as you say - a lot of work.
    R might mean you achieve very little for months, and then really start to make good progress at the end. Plus, you'll have learnt R in the process.

    Python perhaps.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
