Point Grey Flea3 USB camera & Max & Windows 8

Hello !

I’m trying to use a Point Grey Flea3 camera with Max on Windows 8. The camera is working fine with Skype, or AMCAP, but i can’t see it in Max with jit.grab or jit.dx.grab.

Any idea of what’s happening ? Did someone already used this kind of camera ?

on windows 8 64bits, if you want the point grey dlls to correctly register with direct show, use the 32 bits version of the driver and the 32 bits version of Max.

Hi Guillaume,
Just wanted to confirm that you got the flea3 working on windows? Are you getting the full res and frame rate? Getting ready to get one myself by wanted to make sure it will run in max.

yes i’ve been working on windows 8 with a flea3 (FL3-U3-13E4C). As the computer wasn’t so powerfull, and i was applying shaders and playing video, i had to lower a bit the acquisition resolution to get a correct framerate. But you should be able to get full res and framerate. Check this doc : http://www.ptgrey.com/support/downloads/downloads_admin/Dlds/Flea3%20USB3%20Technical%20Reference.pdf
