How to include a live stream from a capture card or WebCam 

 

In terminal/shell type : 

 

osgmovie --devices

 

    If you have any live feed devices associated with a QuickTime

    driver then this will spit out some command line options and

    associations.

    It will also spit out any pseudo Windows VDIG wrapped Direct

    Show devices in the same way

 

eg: ...

     4:1.live    Blackmagic HDTV 720    Intensity HDTV 720p 59.94

    ...

     1:4.live    Hauppauge WinTV 418 Video Capture

                (4&E384A6E&0&48F0)    S-Video 3 UYVY @ 720x480

    ...

 run osgmovie and pass it a "pseudo" file name that will be

   translated by the plug-in to point at an input device eg

 

osgmovie x:y.live

 

within Present3D the layer tag would be :

 

<movie>x:y.live</movie>
