inventor crashes on mac when camera detected

0 votes

I have just started to use my je vois camera after finally getting a decent power lead.

I have just installed the latest image and down loaded je vois inventor to my MAC.

I start inventor and then plug the camera in, it is detected but inventor crashes, every time I try and reopen inventor it crashes.

Currently running Movaje 10.14 on the mac.

The camera appears to be ok in photobooth, i.e. the demo loads and runs.

Has anyone else had this problem,

Thanks for reporting this, we will try it and address any issues when we get back to Los Angeles at the end of the week. In the meantime, do you have Xcode installed on your mac? If so, you can try to compile and run the Inventor on your specific mac:

Instructions are here: https://github.com/jevois/jevois-inventor

In more details if you have not done Qt compiling before:

download latest Qt, install to ~/Qt/

git clone https://github.com/jevois/jevois-inventor.git

cd jevois-inventor

~/Qt/5.11.2/clang_64/bin/qmake -config release

make -j 8

open jevois-inventor.app

Thanks for the response, tried installing Xcode but having problems, possibly not enough disc space. I will have to wait until you have had a chance to look at it.
