oaCapture 0.0.7 released

Two releases in a month. The weather must have been bad 🙂

The major additions for this release are support for the Imaging Source USB cameras on OSX and for IEEE1394/IIDC/DCAM cameras on both Linux and OSX. The latter group includes the Point Grey Firefly MV which I have tested (in mono) and also the Point Grey Chameleon and Atik GP which I have not tested. It may well be that all sorts of FireWire cameras also work, but I have none to test and a little fiddling may be required with permissions to get things going. As it is there’s a udev rules file for these cameras on Linux to make the devices readable and writable.

That seems to be one short paragraph that covers an awful lot of work…

Other changes include the addition of controls to enable/disable auto mode for gain and exposure.

My DMK21.618 claims it can do 60fps, but fails miserably with broken frames. That may be a firmware issue, but 30fps seems to work fine.

The same caveats apply for OSX as with the 0.0.6 release. ASI120 cameras may need a firmware change to work, and if you’re building from source it may help to know that I used macports for my build and in particular the qt4-mac, yasm, pkgconfig and tiff packages.
