Taking pictures with Isadora



  • Hi there all,

    For an installation I'm currently researching on how to make pictures with Isadora using an external webcam. I need image files, so no movie files :)

    I know about the Capture Stage To Picture actor. But I'm wondering or you guys had any advice ?

    @bonemap @Woland ?

     And why wouldn't the Capture Stage to Picture actor work for this application?

    I'm also curious why the Capture Stage to Picture won't work. I successfully used it to capture ~600 stills from my live-feed operator's video stream during a performance last night.

    Are you wondering how to set this up and make the instillation work or something else?



  • Hi there all,

    Let me clarify. I use my stages at the moment, and sadly I need to take 4 HD pictures at the same time. Since with the stage setup will cost quite a bit of stages I was wondering or you guys know a way to take a picture of a vid-gpu signal.

    Perhaps I can create a bigger stage and put them next to each other ? I know about the Camera To Disk actor, and I was wondering or there was also a Camera To Picture variant ;)

    Any advice regarding this would be helpfull :)



  • I'm still doing a workaround with sdi to syphon in, syphon recorder takes pictures and put content into an Izzy folder



  • Hi all,

    Where can I find the Capture Stage to Picture actor ?

    i have 2.5.2 version.

    Capture Stage to Picture

    Hi,

    It is included in the forthcoming 2.6 release. Should be available anytime soon.

    Best wishes

  • Thanks for the answer....so I've to wait....☺



  • I think the fact that members of the development team are openly discussing the new features suggests it is very close to being released for general access.

     Personally, I'd love a Capture Camera to Picture actor, but I have a slightly different suggestion. Basically my dream is the Capture Stage to Picture, but with a GPU in instead of a Stage select. That way you could hook it up to anything at any stage of manipulation in your Patch (fresh feed from Video In Watcher, or a heavily-modified feed that's ready to go to a Projector Actor). I think it'd be more flexible than a Capture Camera to Picture actor, and I'd appreciate having it for when my Stages are maxed and I want to take pictures of something that's not necessarily on one of my stages.

    Best wishes,

    Woland



  • @woland

    Great idea Woland. A GPU video signal and a trigger to take a picture would be great !



  • @crystalhorizonCan't wait!



  • @woland Yep, this has been a feature request for years, I was surprised when it appeared it was stage focused not signal focused.

     That would be a relatively easy request to fulfill, given that it's grabbing it off the GPU already. (I had also thought about the usefulness of this.)

    I'll discuss with the team if we can include it in the final build of v2.6, given that it's a plugin and doesn't affect the main app which is far more dangerous.

    Things one can't say about any other Multimedia Software Tool. I may be friends with other pieces of software, but Isadora is definitely family.

    Always happy to be part of the process.

    Best wishes,

    Woland
