    Default Laser Graffiti help?

    ok ive got a projetor and web cam and ive downloaded the software from

    http://muonics.net/blog/index.php?postid=26

    but i cant get it to pick up my camera??

    the read me file says -

    Also to get the camera working with laser tag set camera = 1 in the camera settings of the app
    hit the 's' key and then restart the app.

    dont know what that means.

    also when in the program it says to press c for camera setting, c does nothing?

    can anyone help at all?

    NICE! I'd love to get a set up like that going. What do you have invested so far? Got to get that beast out onto a sky scraper...

    Neat. When is someone going to write the code to replace the video projector with a laser projector?

    it can sorta be done with a laser projector there are a few laser software packages that can use a web cam (or usb composite in) and send out raster scans the only problem i see is the color of the laser pen needs to be different than the color of the laser projector or the camera from the graffiti program cant track the the pointer
    i cant say how good it will look as most laser raster stuff looks like crap

    Hi Andy

    what sort of projector are you using?

    I have a chance to buy a brand new 3000 lumen (LCD I think, but may be DLP) Projector at a VERY reasonable price. A friend of mine uses these a lot in his business and has one 'kicking around' (that's the phrase he uses ). I was thinking of getting one to use with Pangolin's SMS software which I already have.

    To be able to do laser graffitti would be cool, but I just wonder how much power you'll need to get a decent image on the side of a building.

    Cheers

    Thanks Andy

    If I get the projector would you mind if I got in touch for some advice?

    Cheers

    no thats fine mate.

    it was working good as you can see from the vid last night its not work at all at the moment.

    so its very fiddle.

    i would also suggest a web cam where you can adjust settings brightness contrast etc

    cheap!!
