I apologise for starting the fire and running away. Probably not good form! Just a couple of things on and the numerous plate spinnings of the day.
I will look to try Marks and others comments and go through the troubleshooting possibilities.
I am on a college network and have tried both a wired/wireless connection. These, apart from the obvious, have different connotations to the IT system here.
The content continues to reduce in quality over a mixture of set ups. It is nowhere near as bad as the images from Sweden. I have tried this method from Macbook pro's, airs to imacs and the same quality reduction occurs.
I will trial the above methods and come back as soon as possible.
I must add that I think this is a brilliant tool and the possibilities are quite interesting. Please do not take the is as a criticism of people or Isadora. I have always found the advice, guidance and the program to be top notch. Felt I should sure clarify this as often shortened posts on forums can convey a different message.
Recovering Isadora 3.07 has been a big help in trouble shooting the stream setup to Blackboard Collaborate. I am still getting intermittent black video where it appears the stream is previewing in the Live Capture Settings but not then displaying through the Video In Watcher. After trying to pin this down, I think it requires a specific sequence of activation steps to maintain the through put of the video. I tried a bit harder with direct audio through the camera and can only conclude that Blackboard Collaborate is noisy and without a convenient way to monitor the audio stream before going live. I did manage some improvement by recording the stream and playing it back-that appeared to be the only way to know what the stream sounds like. Anyway after setting the sensitivity of the Senhieser radio transmitter to -24db I was able to reduce some of the noise. Monitoring audio through the camera sounds fine and through Isadora sounds fine, so my conclusion is that Blackboard Collaborate does not handle audio that well. But I will keep trying to get clean audio.
I am hoping to get the video and audio stream to run through Isadora, and I will keep trying to get a stable patch configuration.
I just published Syphon Virtual Webcam v0.9.5. The following fixes have been implemented:
Ensured that the OBS Virtual Camera Is Inactive screen would not appear when the Syphon source had a very slow frame rate.Ensured that “App Nap” was disabled for Syphon Virtual Camera.Fixed a bug where a scrambled image would be shown if the Syphon source width was not divisible by 4.Fixed a few small memory leaksAdded "Download the Latest Version" to the Help Menu
Youu can only mainuplate the image in processing. It’s the processing code that is making the 3D visualisation. All syphon is doing is taking a copy of the output and sending it to isadora which is reciving a copy of image.
So you can’t rotate the 3D image in XYZ space in isadora; only in processing.
