ps3 eye control

Feb 17 2010 | 6:10 pm

Hello all,

I am currently working on an installation for which i am hoping to use my ps3 eye usb camera. However, I have been running into issues with getting Jitter to override the automatic camera settings. I currently have the latest version of macam and when i use the settings argument I only get options to set the saturation, brightness and contrast. I really need to be able to manually control the gain and shutter settings however i do not get these options in max. they are available in the standalone version of macam so i assume that there must be some way to control these settings. If anyone has any experience using this camera any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try the cv build 9/25 –

It’s flakey but has the control you’re after.

Thanks, this seems to be working for my needs.
Again, thanks!

I only get the brightness,contrast and saturation parameters in settings in jitter, and I have the 9/25 build installed. Anything special you did to access shutter and gain, or did they just show up in your settings dialog?

I cant answer to you request, but as PS3 user with max, maybe you could help me:
I always have this error message (with my macbook pro 10.5 and a mac-mini 10.6)…
CoreAudio: WARNING: An audio device has been added or removed to the system. You may need to restart MaxMSP.

send ‘settings’ to jit.qt.grab, go to tab webcam, untick autogain, move sliders.
(with Max 4.6.3)

As usual when I post to the forums I figure it out five minutes later :-)
I had a mix of new macam app and old component for the qt library, but now it works fine.

I get the same audio warnings in the max window, but so far this hasn´t caused any problems for me.
