Capturing live output from laptop


    Aug 28 2006 | 2:46 pm
    Hello, I'm trying to capture the live output from a PC Laptop, outputting from Resolume in S-Video, to be able to do something with it with Jitter 1.6 running on a MacBookPro. I tried the Canopus ADVC-100 and did experience some weird pixelisation, and a kind of color distortion (darker color, with much less contrast). The goal is to output the Jitter rendering on a projector in a live set. Does anyone knows if the DFG-1394 would be better than the canopus? Or do anyone has an idea of a better setup? Thanks!

      Any time you go out the s-video output you're going to get major distortion like blurred edges and color munging. On a cursory look, I noticed that Resolume can transfer data over a network connection: http://www.resolume.com/features/networkstreaming.php . This is the best solution. I don't know if they have a specific protocol or if they even publish it, but this is clearly the way to go. Use a crossover cable between the 2 'puters to do this.
      best, wes
