Hi,
I'm trying to capture images from a pair of cameras using the image acquisition toolbox under Mac OS X. The cameras function properly in iMovie or PhotoBooth, however when I open the toolbox and "Refresh Image Acquisition Hardware", the cameras are not visible or accessible. The cameras are connected through an ADVC55 DV converter. Is there a driver or adapter that can be installed/is available to get the cameras working? Any help would be great!
Thanks,
Doug

The following is the list of supported hardware provided by MathWorks. Please find if your hardware is supported by Image Acquisition Toolbox.

Hi,
The problem may be that there is no 64-bit support for your device.
From a command prompt, try recording a new movie using:
arch -arch i386 /Applications/QuickTime\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime\ Player
and
/Applications/QuickTime\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime\ Player
If you find that it only works with the first command, then it is due to lack of 64-bit support on Mac OS X for your device.

I meant to say that if you find that it only works with the first command then the problem is due to lack of 32-bit support on Mac OS X for your device.
