in the jitter live input FAQ they claim “you can use as many unique devices as you can attach to your computer”
is this really true?
ive wrote a patch that SHOULD grab 5 images using jit.dx.grab from 5 seperate cameras and play them back.
i have managed to get three running at once,
now, only 1 camera will work….
ive been told that its impossibible,
has any one actually succeeded in this?
im using 5 different models of logitech cameras,

so this is what I got to work
4 fire-i cameras (using the supplied drivers NOT the QT ones)
not great frame rate and needs a hefty machine to run it (worked poorly on 1ghz powerbook but fine on a 1st gen iMac G5)
I was using it for a tracking system not for playback so a crappy frame rate worked ok for me – I can send you a patch if you like
part of my problem was also that I needed the cameras over the stage so distance was an issue – I found that the 30 meter firewire cable from granite digital to a powered hub worked well
the otherthing is that if you go with the fire-i cameras get the board cameras instead as you can then change the lenses in them – a serious plus.
let me know if you have any further questions

I second this: the cabling can get quite expensive for many firewire
