Computer Vision for Artists

Myron is the cross-platform, cross-language, open source, video capture and computer vision plugin. One core C++ object gets cross-compiled as a handful of high level language "wrapper" libraries. The wrapper for Java and Processing is called JMyron. The wrapper for Macromedia Director is called WebCamXtra. The aim of the project is to keep computer vision free and easy for the new media education and arts community.

Version 0025 Released.
getForcedWidth() + getForcedHeight() added to help PC users with scrambled video signals. I hope this solution is temporary. imageCopy() added to cut out high level memory allocation. Just pass your image object and Myron will fill it with pixels.
Version 0024 Released.
- PC Users, Say goodbye to Quicktime and WinVDig dependencies! Say hello to blazing fast frame rates.
- The limited dimensions bug should be fixed. Go wild with the larger resolutions and let us know.

Look what people are doing!
