a few studies with the Nootropic Design Video Experimenter shield for arduino - I’ve messed with the original TVout library for arduino (which is as fun as it is poorly documented) and figured adding the ability to overlay / effect an input signal would be interesting, and it is!
the ability to view just the output of the shield is really handy (as shown in the second video below), and the relatively lo-resolution comparator output looks nice when overlaid with the input signal. the program used is a slightly-modified version of the video frame capture example patch, with a longer delay between outputting each captured frame.
face.mkv (58.3 MB)
- VHS → experimenter shield → 2000s era USB capture card. frame capture overlaid onto orig signal, paused VCR.
countdown.mkv (56.5 MB)
- same signal flow, with VHS ffwd-ed. frame capture output only, capture every 500ms.
