|Name/Version:||DRK LIVECAM4 QT Quick Time version 1.0|
|Description:||THIS IS THE QUICK TIME VERSION OF DRK LIVECAM4, AIMED MOSTLY TO MACINTOSH USERS.
I HAVE CHANGED MANY THINGS TO MAKE IT WORK WITH QUICK TIME VIDEO OBJECT, AS IT HAS VARIOUS DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS AND MESSAGES TO DIRECT X OBJECT VERSION. SO I INVESTIGATED IT AND DID IT, AS SOME OF YOU TELL ME ABOUT USING LIVECAM4 IN MAC. HERE IT IS : )
add: THE STAND ALONE VERSION FOR MAC IS THE .MXF FILE. SEE LINKS BELOW
FOR USING IN PC WITH WINDOWS (but remember that the previous version of DRK LIVECAM4 already uses native Windows Direct-X object):
YOU HAVE TO INSTALL FULL VERSION OF QUICK TIME 7 OR LATER
DOWNLOAD AND BUY THE FULL VERSION HERE
YOU HAVE TO INSTALL WINVDIG. (I tested versions and 1.01 work better than 1.05. I recommend to fully uninstall previous version of WinVDig and the install 1.01. Download and tips for Windows 7 links here:
DRK LIVECAM4 (Max version for PC, look for Quick Time version in my other plugins to use with MAC) transforms your camera into a 4 continuous midi sensor-controller.
- Musicians who want to explore in real-time, interactive multimedia, with a kind of light & movement sensor-instrument
- Dancers and performers who dont want to depend on a pre-recorded cd, and prefere to making and/or to processing the music alive
As they want, "when" they want, getting so more freedom, surprise and a more lively and integrated situation on scene.
- Interactive instalations where the people that participates can generate or process the music as they walk on it.
All with a simple and cheap web cam...(or any cam recognized by the computer)
How does it works?
The frame area of the drk livecacam4 is virtually divided into 4 zones and each zone correspond to a midi controller when livecam translates the luminance (direct and-or by reflection) to midi values.
Every enough iluminated object works: faces, objects, fixed surfaces...to more luminance corresponds greater midi value.
Some clothes reflectes very well the light, the human skin and hair does, some surfaces and materials....iÂ´ll suggest you to try.
It is better for the captation to work with good contrast: in some darkness and with some iluminated objects or persons to have a lineal behaviour but of course you can experiment with the light conditions.
Also may be interesting for experiment to move the camera, capting different quiet ambient objects like walls, furniture, etc.
Giving so movement to the quietness and translating the results to musical aspects that you decide.
It is very interesting and precise to work with lanterns, better small-led ones.....you control the midi value with the distance between the camera and the lantern.
