{READ INSTALLATION INFORMATIONS CAREFULLY}

{IF YOU ARE USING IT, PLEASE POST SOME FEEDBACKS}

Hi there,
No I’m not dead, just too busy to comment on all my projects… Here is something to keep you occupied.
I would like to thanks again Amit on his incredible work to get fiducial support into CCV. Here is my little contribution. This release of CCV 1.4a includes my usual mods :
– dual port TUIO support.
– no binary com mode, Instead the dualport tuio + flash com mode.

I could use some feedbacks as I don’t have my usual MT hardware with me…

Here is the download link :

Enjoy!

{INSTALLATION INFORMATIONS}
As the config.xml files has a lot of new settings, it is recommended to edit it (notepad should do it) with your old settings instead of just copying your old config.xml file, even if you’re updating from one of my previous mod.

Some announcements

Hi,
Sorry for the fans, I wans’t very active on my blog for quite a long time now (at least for the non-VIPs) but it won’t last…
I’m heading for the end of my big exams and I will be completly free on July 10th.

So I won’t post many things until this date, of course any new VIP user will recieve a code for the VIP section and support on my blog and on the forums are still very active.

BUT after that, here I come again !!!
I will publish some things from the VIP section for the public (that’s not a good reason to stop the donations guys, new stuff will come along…) and I’ll probably make some announcements about the next release of CCV in July (I’m now working closer with Christian Moore). Maybe even some pre-release like I did for the 1.3 version, can’t be sure at this point…
And of course, my Win7 DVD is still on the tracks and I hope to release a RC in July… This DVD will include the latest CCV with the Windows 7 Driver as Service, the M$ touchpack, and many others applications I have gathered… There will be probably two versions, one with all the developper stuff needed, one with only the basic tools to get started… Of course, it wil be compatible with any version of Windows 7. You will have two options (I hope to manage that) : fresh install or updating your current win7 installation with my release.

I hope you are as excited as I am about this one because it will be a huge step for beginners and for those who want to switch for a new computer without reinstalling everything…

Cya!

NEW CCV 1.3 MOD {RELEASE UPDATED}

PLEASE SEND SOME FEEDBACKS OR COMMENT, I NEED TO KNOW IF IT WORKS

Hi,

PLEASE READ NOTES AT THE END IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PREVIOUS CCV SETTINGS.

Here is a new CCV mod I made which enable broadcasting TUIO over two ports.
I made this mod because as I told you a little bit earlier, there is a project of a CCV with fidcucial (tags) tracking. As most multitouch apps use TUIO as direct input and not WM_TOUCH events, I needed a way to be able to use TUIO based apps at the same time as the Windows 7 driver.
I know that the driver and the apps are for the moment using the same default port which is 3333, but I’m in the process of modifying the driver input port so that we can use it at the same time as TUIO based apps.

In this version, you can choose the two broadcasting ports in the config.xml. They are currently set to 3333 and 3334. CCV will only show the customed port number when boradcasting so don’t worry if you see port 3334, the default port 3333 is active too if you don’t change anything…

Here are the download links :
Hosted on my blog :

http://cktouch.fr.nf/share/ccv13mul...

and a Megaupload link :

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NPUO03...

I’ll post about a mod driver as soon as I’m done changing the default port.

IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PREVIOUS CCV SETTINGS.
In order to keep your CCV settings, go in the data folder of your CCV, save the config.xml, the camera.xml and the calibration.xml files.
Replace your CCV installation with my files, then replace the three files with your own.
Then open the file config.xml, and in the NETWORK section, paste on this instead of the previous lines :

<NETWORK>
<LOCALHOST>127.0.0.1</LOCALHOST>
<TUIO>0</TUIO>
<TUIODEFAULTPORT_OUT>3333</TUIODEFAULTPORT_OUT>
<TUIOPORT_OUT>3334</TUIOPORT_OUT>
<TUIOFLASHPORT_OUT>3000</TUIOFLASHPORT_OUT>

Enjoy !!!

NEW CCV 1.3 Binairies {UPDATE 03/02/2010 22:00}

Hi,
I wanted to tell you that I’ve updated the binairies of CCV 1.3a. I’ve fixed one major issue in this release. As you may know, CCV sends over TUIO the (0,0) coordinate every time a blob appears out of the calibrated zone. Well not anymore with this version of CCV 1.3a.

Here are the links to download it :

or the Megaupload link :

Enjoy !!!

{UPDATE 03/02/2010 22:00} : All improvments from the SVN repository are included in this new release, included a better (0,0) fix.

CCV 1.3a comments

Hi,
I’ve now tried CCV 1.3a on my table, I can tell you : rocks !!!!
I’m not done with my tests but this release of CCV has a far much better tracker and as single cam tracking software, it is as stable as CCV 1.2…
There is very good integration with the PS3 Eye cam, you can control all settings from CCV, and also set zoom ratios, offsets, lens distortion correction,…
Hope you enjoy it as mush as I do, hope to get some feedbacks from people who have two PS3 Eye…
