ISight controls

October 14, 2005 | 3:30 pm

Is there an object or a patch to turn off the auto controls in the
isight? I searched the list, but couldn’t find anything. I’m would
like to have the same controls that http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iglasses/
has. It’s awesome! I tried to use it with Max, but it doesn’t work.

Thanks!

Check out the jit.qt.grab help patch: there’s a subpatch called
iidc_support which has all of the stuff you need to do this.

Seems like the iSight on the iMac G5 doesn’t react to the iidc
messages within jit.qt.grab (vers. 30th September 2005). My external
iSight on the desktop G5 works.

This is on iMac G5, 1.9 Ghz, OS 10.4.3, MaxMSP 4.5.6, Jitter 1.5.2

re:iSight controls on iMac G5
ISight has a lot of lag if you are processing in real-time

That’s weird. You mean this one? http://www.apple.com/de/support/imac/
g5_isight/

Do you get any errors in the Max window or simply no response?

hi jeremy,

just wanted to let you know, that it’s not important for me. the
isight is not necessary in the patch anymore. thanks,

best,

The built in iSight on the iMacs and new MacBookPro is actually
connected over a USB bus, and doest have those features like auto
focus, etc. So im not surprised this doesnt work.
