We at Hellicar&Lewis have been working on a streaming video project for the Abandon Normal Devices festival:
We’ve ended up using the fantastic Camtwist:
After a suggestion from Jason Van Cleave. This allows us to use a pair of Dazzle USB video digitisers with the composite out of a pair of GoPro Hero2 cameras:
However, we would really love to be able to use a native oF HD solution on the remainder of the tour, and release it to the world. We’ve purchased a pair of Intensity Thunderbolts:
To allow us to take HD input from the HDMI output of the GoPro’s, rather than their SD PAL composite out, using Blackmagic’s Declink SDK:
However, getting either the composite, or HDMI outputs of the GoPro to appear as valid inputs on the Intensity Shuttle has proven to be impossible thus far. Has anyone else had any success with any of the Intensity range? Or with GoPro Hero2’s via composite or HDMI outputs?
Will Gallia has made a port of Arturo’s Linux ofxBlackmagicGrabber to OS X, which can be seen here:
Amongst other things.
This is the sister project to Diedericks video streaming efforts:
It would be great to get rock solid audio and video coming into oF - the Declink SDK is Mac/Windows/Linux, so could be great addition.
James George mentioned that Blackmagic input was the whole reason he made:
But I can’t even get the composite input to work - which is bizarre, as other composite devices work, and composite is composite is composite, right?
I believe the HDMI issue might be that the Hero2 is encoding audio with AAC. I have support issues going at both Blackmagic and GoPro - so will report back.
