I have just bought one of these too, maybe with a view to purchasing another 7 so I can have 8 with the octapack from Code Laboratories, for some matrix style sweeps around the dj.
This will still be cheaper than 8 composite cameras and a matrix to switch them all
I have added the cl-eye.config file to put the camera into advanced mode, and this appears in the cltest prog to access the higher framerates and resolutions for directshow, however these do not seem to be accessable by vvvv.
videoin reports the actual stream as 640x480 @ 30fps
am I correct in thinking I could somehow use the sharedmemory node and grab the frames that way? would I have to code some c++ or java? with the SDK or is there another way for vvvv to get the frames? as I cant code, doh!
I don’t yet even have a second PS3 camera as stocks here of just the camera (without a ps3 game bundle) are limited and I bought the last one in town the other week.
Ultimately I would like to grab 8 frames at the same time and then do what I will with them, stitch into a panorama or just run through 8 images from the same timeframe as an anim.
any tips to get me started?
what do i feed the first pin of sharedmemory with??
These cameras look cheap and good enough for a whole host of fun, just don’t quite have the knowledge…yet
