I am working on a project which consist to controlling two FireWire camera simultaneously, I tried to install your frame grabber kit but when I installed I have got an error message :
Unrecognized token, etc..
How do I install this kit for Matlab 64bit version ?
Thomas, supposedly the underlying LTI-Civil library can capture from two cameras simultaneously. And I had seen it work! But, I have had experiences, too, where the computer freezes up when I capture two simultaneous images. The problem seems to worsen when the images being captured are higher resolution or the frame rate is higher. I suggest trying the following: 1. A faster computer; 2. Separate USB buses (e.g. install a separate USB controller and put one camera on that); 3. FireWire cameras instead of USB cameras; 4. Decreasing the resolution and/or the frame rate. I would like to know if any of these options work for you. Longer-term, I have had better experience with the OpenCV library and am considering updating the software to use that instead of LTI-Civil. Maybe that will help with the 64-bit Mac problems too?
Zizhou and Brian, I have had troubles getting LTI-Civil to work with QuickTime video capture in 64-bit Mac/OS. I don't know if it is possible for the current system to actually work. Sorry I can't be of further help.
Hello. I am currently working on a project with stereovision on my university.
I have successfully downloaded and installed this toolkit you have made.
My question is, how is it possible for me to get a stereoscopic picture with this toolkit?
When "fgrabm_test" is called, I recive a picture from my integrated webcam(camera1), I can also change the default to USB webcam1(camera2) or USB webcam2(camera3) and get pictures from them,but only one bye one.
When I run the "sample_twocams" it starts running and Matlab is "busy" but Matlab runs forever and nothing will work and eventually Matlab is not responding to anything so I have to manually shut down Matlab.
For my project I need one picture from camera2 and camera3 taken
simultaneously, so I then can load the pictures to another Matlab script I have and do some tests.
Really hope you guys can be able to help me with this, much appreciated.
