Re: PD and GEM for virtual environments

Out of curiosity, how does one enable this second option (2 separate 
sub windows?)

A good friend of mine and I are working on a project (well, im helping 
him with some basic stuff..)... for doing 3D video playback from 
stereoscopic footage shot while skydiving. He has mounted 2 cameras to 
his helmet and has recorded some footage, and we are looking for easy 
ways to send frame accurate (read synched) video to two projectors, and 
will probably end up using polarized filters and glasses to view. We 
last tested max/jitter using a very large 1600x600 (2 800x600 
quicktimes 'glued' together) and using jit.scissors to separate them to 
two instances of jit.window. Even on a dual G5 2.5 Ghz with 4 Gb ram, 
we dropped frames using mjpeg codec, but uncompressed video seemed to 
be ok. I would like very much to use Gem, but since one cant 
instantiate two windows (on OS X at least..), I thought it might not 
work... I dont think that G5 ever worked that hard, which to me was 
very very surprising.

Does anyone have any example patches doing something similar, and 
keeping proper frame synch from either one, or two pix_movies? I have 
great faith that Gem and PD will be much smoother.

Thanks much. You guys are all too cool!

These projects sound very interesting..

Video wireless solution ?

Hello,

I used video camera in GEM and the firewire and USB solution work fine.

But i often have lenght's cable problem.  So i would like to used an
wireless video connection.  I have the wireless system and a pinnacle pctv
de luxe but it's seems only work with pinnacle software !!!

I would like to know if someone have a solution for an acquisition extern
card or an other proposition ?

Thank's again this great soft.

never seen Scope~ doing this... patching envgen (which is Guenter's)
should be as simple as replacing all references to te_xpix with
text_xpix() calls, and the same for ypix.

I would have happily put them in ../../bin, if that existed.  Would
be much easier for cvs users to just append that to the path, and
reduce the cycle to a simple update-and-make (unless there are extra
dependencies to ./configure).

Re: Video wireless solution ?

My school has a device that has RCA video plugs on two terminals, and 
the terminals send wireless video between eachother. The RX may even 
have a firewire output. It's generally a piece of crap IMO because you 
have to plug each terminal into the wall, which for me defeats 
"wireless". It was < $100 though, and may be what you're looking for. I 
can get model numbers if you're interested.

Re: Video wireless solution ?

hi,

I was using a RF wireless camera (as small as your thumb) (with RCA 
output) (range around 100m) and hook it up with a DV, then DV firewire 
--> computer.

It's kind of "spy" gadgets and it's quite easy to get a cheap one 
(around 40-50 euros), at least in Scandinavia.

Cheers,
SFS

belt conveyor control

salü
probably little off-tropic but as there are some tinkerers around maybe 
someone could give me a point of departure.
I'm trying to figure out controlling a belt conveyer attached to my 
computer/pd.
basically i thought about controlling a motors movement - passing 
parameters for some estades to turn back and forth.
if someone has experience in this direction in his sewing box (f.e. with 
modules from http://www.ak-modul-bus.de) i appreciate it if he/she could 
share it.
thanks in advance&greets

problem with zexy external: matrix~

Hi.
 
I have the Zexy library running with Pd 0.37.1 on Windows.... but it doesn't work quite right.
 
Upon instantiation, I get the following message:
 
  warning (matrix~): dummy substitution
 
and then even when I load the help file, I get a bunch of errors:
 
  error (miXed): missing or bad arguments in "matrix~"
  error (miXed): missing or bad arguments in "matrix~"
  matrix~.pd 13 0 23 4 (gatom->matrix~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 15 0 16 0 (message->text~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 16 0 23 3 (text->matrix~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 17 0 18 0 (message->text~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 18 0 23 3 (text->matrix~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 19 0 21 0 (message->text~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 20 0 22 0 (message->text~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 21 0 23 3 (gatom->matrix~) connection failed
  matrix~.pd 22 0 23 3 (gatom->matrix~) connection failed
 
Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? I've tried using the zexy.dll from the website, I've built matrix~ myself from source... nothing seems to give.
 
Also - something that's really strange: if I delete all dll's (ie, zexy.dll, matrix~.dll), the object still instantiates and gives the same error (!?) what object am I loading?
 
Thanks,
Mike

Re: belt conveyor control

The way I'd go about this is using a microcontroller of some sort. A 
BASIC STAMP may be the best and easiest if you're just doing this one 
thing. Alternatively you can use a PIC, in which case my tutorial at 
http://www.0x09.com/Marlboro/physcomp might be useful. Basically the 
microcontroller would give you an interface between a motor and your 
computer.

You might be able to do it without a microcontroller, depending on the 
motor and its interface. You might even be able to just plug it in to a 
serial port, perhaps via a relay. The serial port uses +/-5V DC, which 
can be triggered using the [comport] external. You output that to a 
relay, which triggers the motor on or off. That's entirely speculative, 
I just pulled it out of my ass, and I've never tried anything like it 
before.

Cheers,
Ian
