Video plugin, position text unreadable
« on: May 16, 2009, 10:14:47 AM »
Hello,
i'm using the video window and activated "show position".
The position is shown, but the text is nearly unreadable as you can see on the screenshot.
Can i change the font or does anybody know another way to get to an readable text.

regards, Josef

Josef,
You can try changing the colors and see if there is an improvement ( didn't do much on my end ).
Do a search, since i know there is another video plug in by someone. That plug in provided choice of lighting and text, BUT.......  not sure if the video works with everything. I tried, liked it, it didn't work with CopyCat so i don't use it.
No answer, but your not alone,  ;)

Brett,
Yep, and here is my reply and Greg's are worth mentioning.
Using the Klaus's video plug would be a nice upgrade for Copycat "if it worked in Copycat" .
Can't speak for using it otherwise.
Window resizing is one biggy along with the ability to change lighting so you wouldn't need to use filters
on the camera. Don't know current status of his plug-in and Ron replied so I know he is aware of it.

Hello,
I successfully tested the plugin from Klaus, but as far as i know the coordinates can't be shown in the video window.

The video window should be used to document the position/size/angle of a pad printed logo.
It's much easier only copy the video window into msword, iinstead of inserting the coordinates manually into the bitmap.

Regards,
Josef
