using FireWire camera

December 18, 2012 | 8:16 am

Hi.
I’m trying to using FireWire camera. (device: Firefly MV)
I already checked the computer recognized the device and it works well.
But it doesn’t connected to Max.
I used jit.avc patch but it just give "jit.avc: could not find any avc devices"message.
Is there any solution?

I have used these cams as well. Only one way they work (on a Mac):

jit.qt.grab with dim 640×480

I’m using Window7.

Is it related with OS?

(still cannot find the device with jit.dx.grab)

hi taeyonii,
i been in same situation couple of months ago.
setting a FFMV in Win7 64 and i spend like three days to get it working in Max.. its a matter of the PGR drivers and not Max…

what works to me is:

1/ install 1.8 drivers 64bit version. use *custom installation* mode and check x64 and 32bit DLL and EXEs
2/ manually register the 32bit dll doing:

regsvr32 PGRDirectShowDecoder.ax
regsvr32 PGRDirectShowSource.ax

the knowdldge base of PGR is very good and
if you still having problems, speak with PGR support they are really helpful and can do remote sessions..

good luck!
