new version out.
codename “ugly-code” is out!
with it you can kill auto-focus/-exposure/-white balance and set the absolute value of these manually on a uvc camera. the gui is really just thrown together and may not recognize your cam if it returns any error in the get-all request of uvcc.app/Contents/Resources/uvc-ctrl. it does however work nicely with the logitech c910 (on both x86_64 and i386 snowy leopards). a screenshot is available in the earlier post about it.
oh, and i stole the icon from somewhere on the internet.. can’t even remember where!
note: requires python 2.6, shipped with os x 10.6 – snowy leopard. so if you are running os x 10.5 you can update your python installation, or just wait.. ill get a new, python >= 2.5 version up in a while.
note 2: found a bug, the auto exposure slide should go from 1 to 8. selecting 0 will cause an error that goes unnoticed by (well, not that unnoticed.. you’ll notice the setting wasn’t saved)!
note 3: got some reports it isn’t working.. it seems alotta progs that use a webcam resets all settings (and thus turns on auto-whatever) when opened. This may very well be an apple driver “feat” but most people i’ve spoken with says it works well if they turn off the auto-whatever after starting said program.
btw, beer is good.
