Actually, Droid, I just posted the first beta:
Just unzip that folder to somewhere in your hard drive, and follow the instructions in the README.txt file. Note, this release is missing some major features, but it can capture frames (at least with my webcam), so I’m releasing it.
Two things to note, however, is that you must have Python installed, and you must be running windows. If you meet those two requirements, you shouldn’t have any problems.
Is there gonna be a mac beta soon?
You are a hero, BJS!
BJS, I used pythonw and the program did not open.
Droid, Make sure that your camera is plugged in. Currently, it needs a camera availible to run, or it gives some strange errors (note: I plan on fixing this soon). Try running it with just python. A black box will pop up briefly. If there is text on it (but it will probably dissappear before you can read it), try this:
Press Start > Click on Run
Type in cmd > Click on Ok
Type the following in the black box that follows (replacing where nessary):
This is basically the same as right-clicking the file and selecting Open With > Python, but here the errors won’t dissapear until you close the window. Write down the error, and either email it to me or PM me what it says.
MM, I doubt there will be a Mac release for a little while. The way I’m connecting to the camera uses DirectX 8 (which Macs definately lack). When I can find a way to do it that is mac friendly, I will let everyone know.
It just doesn’t work, I get the box, but nothing else, i have my camera plugged in.
were their any error messages at all? I figured there would be at least an error message telling me what went wrong. The error message will be something like
Traceback: (most recent call last):
(error message here)
As this program progresses, it should become much more stable. Also, I plan to try to compile to exe again.
I can not make heads or tails out of that, it’s very confusing. What is “pathto”? How much of the path do I enter?
I guess I didn’t make myself clear. Say if you unzipped it to a folder called anasazi in you My Documents folder:
cd C:Documents and SettingsuserMy Documentsanasazi
You would replace user with your user name. Does that make more sense?
