problems with chained cameras Fire-i

    Nov 10 2010 | 11:36 pm
    Hello all,
    I've posted previously about a patch with 2 chained fire-i
    1 b&w and the other color
    on Mac Osx 10.6.4
    Max 5.1.5
    the fire-i cameras are connected through the firewire 800 port on the MacBook Pro
    I'm using a cable 400 to 800 (I've tested as well with a firewire hub 400 and through a
    La Cie HD 800 (with 400 ports)
    The problem seems with the color camera (tested with 2 different color camera)
    There is a delay with a simple patch. Sometimes the delay makes the fps goes 5 fps lower
    on a patch more complexe.
    Here's my test patch
    can someone tell me if they had the same problem and what I can do to correct.
    I used the same patch on an older version of snow leopard and Max 5.1.3

      Seems like when I set the cameras in manual mode
      it runs smoother.

      Hi I am sorry this is not about this subject, I saw that almost 6 months ago you send it a patch to somebody that was able to detect when red color appear on an image. I was looking for the patch but I was not able to find it.
      It would be possible if you send me an example.
      I do not know if you could post it here.

      I don't remember the patch but maybe this could help you

      So nobody is using 2 cameras chained together ?
      Please let me know if you a have found a solution for the delay.
      I have a show on saturday and it seems I'll have to accept the cameras shot down during the show :-(
