Video quality from an iSight camera on a Mac
« on: May 29, 2009, 03:10:51 AM »
I have a macbook pro, and the only camera I have that I can record with is the built in camera. It gets good quality, but the diabolos are kinda blurry, and if I do a suicide or anything like that I can't see the sticks. Does anyone know what I can do to hep this??? I don't know if it's possible, but if it is, please tell me how so I can start posting videos here.

the isight camera will not enough no matter what. I have an aluminum imac, and it can't capture well either. go borrow or buy an actual camera.

You could try deinterlacing your video. It does wonders for your framerate. Although this might not be the solution - you might as well try it.
Since you're using a mac - read this article by Sean about Beautiful 50 or 59.94 fps Deinterlacing on a Mac

I tried that but when I pick everything, it won't let me click "ok".

The video from the iSight camera isn't interlaced! Don't deinterlace it. It records at ~15 frames per second, so that might be the reason for the motion blur.

Is there anything I can do to make it so I can see the sticks when I do suicides and stuff?

Actually, I stand corrected on the 15 fps thing. It auto adjusts based on light. Therefore, film somewhere with better light and the frame rate will increase: Apple - Support - Discussions - framerate issue ...

Aahhhh, yeah the placed I filmed didn't get much light, I had to turn lights on in a different room to get the light I did. Thanks Sean!
