Switch from one module to another

+1 vote

I just received my JeVois Camera yesterday in Paris and it works very well with my mac under OS X 10.11.5.

I have the video in Photo Booth, the pink square and the green ring. I succeed to launch the serial console in my terminal et and i have the "ok" when the command is good.

i noticed that there isn't any white text on the top left screen with photo booth instead of skype video where i see the name of the module loaded. But the behavior is the same so it does not matter.

Where can i find the documentation to understand how to load a module because when i use for example "setmapping 37" it returns "ok" but when i start Photobooth after that it did not make any difference.

You documentation on http://jevois.org/basedoc/ seems to be very precise but to me it miss something just more explicit tu understand what is the  pink square or the green ring for example. After that you explain very well how to use it with command line but not how it is suppose to react when you change the module for example.

I am not sure how to proceed with that. If i have to change the file on the sd card or if i can to da that with serial console on the basic JeVois image.

Even at this point of my test you product is awesome !

yes, sorry, we had not found a good app to switch video modes on Mac, until today - have a look at CamTwist Studio, new documentation page updated here: http://jevois.org/doc/UserStartMac.html

Even if you set a mapping by hand (setmapping 37), when you start a video capture app (like Photobooth or CamTwist), it will make its own new request for a video mode, which will override your previous request. Setting video mapping by hand really is only useful when you will not grab video (e.g., use JeVois with an Arduino only).

Yes, we will add more info to the doc of the modules (pink square = attended location in current frame; green circle = smoothed location over time of the pink squares, using a Kalman filter)
