Here is the FIRST release of the imaginatively named DBProAVI.dll.

Summary of what you get (so far):

New Commands:

EXTRACT AVI FRAME "Avi Filename",frame number
(Will extract a single frame from an AVI file of your choice and save it as a BMP).

MAKE AVI "New AVI filename",Frame Rate, Width, Height
(Will create a new AVI file)

ADD IMAGE TO AVI image number
(Will add an image to your AVI animation)

CLOSE AVI *no params*
(Closes your AVI file).

Please take into account that this is a VERY early release and as such has a few bugs, but it IS useable in it's current state.

Just copy the .dll into the plugins-user folder, and copy the .ini into your keywords folder.

At present, the dll makes use of some memblock functions from the DB-Pro exe, so you need to make sure the memblock dll gets linked in (in other words, you need to make sure you make a memblock or something early on in your program).

Here's a little example code for you to play with:




WARNING: No codec compress yet, so outputs are LARGE (but non-lossy, so good for proper video work!).

Let me know of bugs.

Enjoy!

Nice, CJB! But you might want to make it more like "open to write". So instead of this:
You could do this:
The "1" everywhere is the avinumber, just like the filenumber, in "open to write". Just a idea.

Your code seem quite interesting. While I don't need it right now, I see lots of use for it for later. I was wandering if you could help me. Do you know how to read the number of frame and the current frame of a loaded animation in DBP?

Keep on the good work!!!

Any news?
This plugin has a lot of potential. I am sure I am not the only one that could do with something like this.

*Bump*

Could you please alter the extract command to save directly to an image slot? Saving to a .bmp is a bit of a strange thing to do in my opinion.


Since the other one was scaring you guys so much...

I've been peeping in on this thread from time to time. This seems like a
cool plugin, but not much has happened with it. Does anyone have even an
inkling to where CJB has gone off to? It would be nice to see this plugin
finished...

This is a brillant plugin I've started to use for live DBPro video capturing. As I've produced the source code, and love writing tutorials. I've produced one for this plugin.

The video's are hosted on my new DarkPRINCIPLES site, and completely free.

Detailed documentation can be found HERE

The Video File can be downloaded HERE

I've produced the documentation into a downloadable, and much neater PDF file with a proper table of content, the code examples I demonstrated in the video tutorial and some special notes. HERE please note that to download, print and view the PDF from the site you do need to register. This just shows you're support for the site, and the work I do in my free time. It will also let you use the forums so you can request tutorials, and publish your own if you want too.

Wonder if CJB will finish this? It's been over 3 years since he posted it.

Nice tutorials and documentation there by the way, Daniel.
