I have been doing some research on getting multiple dv cameras into jitter. As of now it seems that only IIDC capable cameras or converters are accepted when one wants multiple inputs on a mac.
After pursuing other software I have found that Grand VJ by Arkaos can accept multiple camera inputs on a mac and they claim this is due to the new QTkit offered by apple.
Can jitter please incorporate this technology in future versions?
I quote from the Apple Developpers site: "Using these classes and methods, you can record professional-quality audio and video content from one or more cameras and microphones, including USB and Firewire devices, as well as DV media devices."
From the Arkaos Grand VJ forum: "Mac: changed the camera / streaming support to use new QuickTime API (QT Kit capture instead of the old QuickTime streaming). Thanks to this you can now use multiple DV Cameras, HDV cameras, HD acquisition is possible with a PCI card (ie Decklink Intensity Pro) etc."
praying for multiple high quality camera input capabilities on his MacPro...
