jit.qt.grab pictures?

hello all,

i know that [jit.qt.grab] does allow you to take a picture with it, using the camera etc. but was wondering how could i save pictures, say every 10 seconds to a purpose picture file to store without having to input a file name every time.

i have been working on it, but can not figure it it out, to take a picture without it asking me the choose the file name of saving. i want to to take pictures by itself, then until i stop it will stop all the pictures saving to the file. just to leave it going by itself until i stop it.

many thanks…

Hi Lewis,

Since it’s almost cristmas again. A self-automated, webcam-grabber! It works by taking the date/time and sprintf-ing them between an exportimage-message. Just check it out.


How’s the DS-hacking going?

Edit; I know there is a better way for using the sprintf, probably leave it out entirely and go for the regexp but for now that’s still a little out of my league so i went for the workaround. :)

many thanks for that man, i will give it a good look at tomorrow or tonight.

the ds’ing is going well, of sorts. hahaha. although i have been busy not doing much, enjoying having the flat to myself making some odd music and max for live things, plus some website updating.
once i do get something done, i will post it up. cheers for the concern
