Hi, I am about to purchase an ETC and was wondering if it’s technically possible to use a class compliant usb video camera/web cam and have a mode that manipulates that in real-time. Has anyone tried or thought of this? Any suggestions for class compliant video cameras/web cams?
No, it won’t be possible. The ETCs processor and RAM capabilities are not powerful enough for real video handling. I like to call the ETC a synthesizer for graphics animation. To call the ETC a video synthesizer would raise false expectations.
You may do some video like stuff with split animated gifs (see Using Giphy Stickers to create animation)
Thanks for the clarification, good to know and thanks for the gif link. I’ll give it all a try but I’m interested in the ETC because of its simplicity so definitely not a deal breaker.
