I'm a developper working for live stage performances.
Actually I'm using **3** ps eye for a dance performance. They are connected with 3 different USB ports on a core i7 hackintosh (10.5.7 for now, 10.6 soon). Everything is working almost as expected (I'm saying almost, because USB don't really seem to be a science, and don't look very rationnal, specially when working with 15 meters cables :-()
The cams are used in very different ways along the show : sometimes to create a mask for projections, sometimes to project some very small thing at a big size, etc.
In order to achieve this, they need to have very different settings : gain, shutter, luminosity, contrast, and framerate are the values I'd really like to have on per-camera basis.
However when I choose "Save Current Settings", the new values are applied to all the cameras.
- is there a solution to change this behavior ?
It would be really great that the new values applies only to the current displayed camera.
- does it implies very heavy change in the macam code ?
- can someone make it, or tell me a basic way to implement this ?
excuse me for my poor english…
PS : big big thanks to the dev of macam, you are doing a wonderful job !
I am also interested in gain and what not?
I found the source for the driver. It is in macam/source/cameras/OV534Driver.m . I just don't know how to add gain control.
I am taking back my previous reply because I found the solution.
The build from 9/25 has gain and shutter working . http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44375&package_id=176091
Just click on the little check box next to the labels "gain " and " shutter" to enable the sliders.
thanx to the people on http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44375&package_id=176091 for their help.
