Control of Settings Dialog in Jit.QT

    Dec 02 2008 | 11:25 pm
    Hi All:
    I am attempting to automate multiple video inputs into a project on a Mac.
    I am using two ImagingSource DFG-1394-1e using the driver written by ASC services. I can get two different video input sources in using the dialog box under settings. BUT, what I would like to be able to have happen is to NOT have to physical set the input selections unders "Settings".
    Does anyone know how to control the various selections via Max scripting. Each driver has different options, but can one select say bullet two from input source, and other settings? (i.e., I need to select a particular setting under the DFG1394 options in order to tell it to be video one, and to pass the output of that unit into the second video convertor.
    This project is in a DoubleTree Hotel and I would like to have it automated in the scripting.
    Thanks in advance for your expertise and reply.

      It's been a while since I've hooked up my DFG, but can't you use the "getinputlist" message and @input to choose the input you want?

      Yes. Unfortunately I need to select a particular dialog box setting not available through this method. The software driver needs the connection of: "YUV411 in YUV422" out" which is the second option. The settings dialog box defaults the selections to selection one.
