This is an extended application of video player add-on, capable of displaying any corner of the desktop in real-time. One of its applications is to display real-time statistics dashboard directly in 3D world.
You need select top-left corner and bottom-right corner to set capture area, press “CaptureTopLeft” and “CaptureBottomRight” to start selecting corners, VC will be freeze, this is normal. move cursor to desired position, press mouse middle button, “Top” + “Left” and “Bottom” + “Right” will be filled automatically.
Enter the desired file location in “TargetImage”, the captured image will be continuously saved to that location.
Set image scale as you wish.
Start the simulation, the current update frequency is 1 second in real-world time, which is delay(sim.SimSpeed)
Performance depends on update frequency because it captures image, load imags, updates material’s texture, rebuild geometry, the faster the update frequency, the lower the performance.
Hi Este, I would love to use this plugin too, but I followed the steps and it doesn’t work as the video shows. Can I ask you some specific operations? I would be very grateful if there is a video demonstration.
I remember someone in the forum asking if it was possible to add multiple perspectives, like Blender, where one window stays in one place and the other angles can wander. Can this function be developed?
Thank you so much for the development, as always, fantastic work! I noticed two points: 1) The screen scaling under Windows needs to be set to 100% (at least in my case). 2) It would be great if we could also capture this as a VCAX
