Capture and video processing from 3D FPV camera
“The BlackBird”
For capture of video we need to pick up the necessary equipment and the software.
And so let's start with the equipment:
Computer (further PC)
3D FPV camera “The BlackBird”
Video capture device

program window VirtualDub should be a picture from the camera as a double image.

12. Leave this list, select the menu item «File>Set capture file». Indicate the location on your hard disk and
enter a file name. In the menu item video\compression choose a favorite method of compression.
For example:
If you don`t record audio, in the menu item “Audio\Enable Audio Capture" uncheck.
Start the capture menu item “capture\capture video”.
When you have recorded enough, disable it, selecting a menu item “capture\stop capture”.
If you need another video format, then change settings “resize”.
If it isn't necessary to transform to an anaglyph, you don't carry out item 11.
If the audio is necessary – you don't disable it.
After video capture, for its preservation in a 3D format it is necessary: to leave a mode of capture and to
select “File>Save as AVI”. Indicate the location on your hard disk and enter a file name. Wait for the
processing and then enjoy the result.
