Wouldn’t it be nice (to get on with your neighbors) to have these patterns come out of Blackmagic (or Aja, Matrox for that respect) hardware? I bet this has been requested before in the old forum, but I didn’t check. Blackmagis has an SDK for their hardware.
I’m no coder, so I really don’t know how hard it actually is but it would surely make this software even greater!
Well, you can have these patterns come through Blackmagic cards right now, by utilizing Resolve (which also happens to be free). Resolve drives the Blackmagic card, and DisplayCAL controls Resolve and feeds it patterns. The procedure is outlined here.
I just did it today, and it worked wonderfully. Nifty. Thanks so much, Florian!
(PS To clarify, what I assume Florian is referring to, is that this isn’t a matter of programming but of licensing; Blackmagic’s products are commercial, while DisplayCAL and ArgyleCMS are open-source. So the SDK’s license terms may prohibit distributing its code in such software.)
