I just saw that the Canon 7D comes with an HD video monitoring application that allows you to tether your camera to a computer via USB. I'm new to Jitter, but what are the requirements for getting live streaming video input into Jitter? Does it have to come from some sort of interface like a Matrox or can you stream it from something like quicktime pro? Is there some sort of video equivalent to soundflower that would let you screen select the video from an application and run that into other applications (like Jitter)?
This Canon 7D application also lets you access different control parameters that you would find on the camera like zoom, aperture, focus, etc. Does anyone know if there is an API for these controls that I could access within Max? Or is there any other camera out there that people have already successfully controlled/streamed in Jitter? Thanks,
