Hi! Thanks
Im using Xcode in a Macbook Pro 2012 with macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6

What project are you building?
Does it happen as well if you build any of the openFrameworks examples?
If no, is it possible that you’re using the camera without noticing?

Im building an example openFrameworks projects because I’m starting to learn this but I notice that my webcam turn on when I push the botton built, I open the primitive 3D figures examples that comes in the carpet.

that is normal the 3d primitives example has a mode in which it uses the input from the camera to texture map the primitives so when it starts it opens the webcam to grab the video in that mode
