calculation of volume

calculation of volume

Postby Chap » Wed Feb 13, 2008 1:15 pm

Hello everybody!
I have simple enquiries. Is it possible to calculate the volume of those 3D frames. How it works? I want to define the volume of my object!
How can I transfer or convert the finished "movie" in *.bmp; *.tiff or *.jpg?
Thanks for answer me :-)

Welcome Chap,
About volume calculation (in David), I don't know. I hope that someone else can aswer to your question.
About img convertion: in David, you can open a movie with "David video grabber" and in the scannins step, use the grab button to obtain a frame shot.
Other (and simple method) is -> In David open a video with the same video grabber tool and be sure that the window with playng movie is selected -> after press Alt+Print button (if you have a PC with windows operative system). This action save in your ram memory the frame shot. -> after open a 2d images editor (the most simply is Paint, pre-installed in xp windows [Satrt > all programs > Accessories]) and press, in Modify menu, the Paste button (CTRL+V). Now you have your shot. Save it in preffered file format.
If your problem is: saving entire movie, frame after frame, into a sequence of images, use the free tool Bink Video from "RAD Video Tolls" In that software, open your video, set up the output images format and convert in image files. For other info, don't hesitate.
Bye, Mattia
