Issue Details

I want to record and save a video stream from a camera. In NI MAX, I can see the live stream from the camera and set the triggering options I need, however, there is no option to record a video in NI MAX. Is there a simple way to record a video from the camera?

Solution

You cannot record and save videos in NI MAX but you can do this in LabVIEW. One example is called "Grab and Save to AVI .vi". A couple of things to consider when doing videos in LabVIEW:
  • LabVIEW only supports AVI files¬†
  • If AVI files do not work, you can always save the images acquired as JPEG¬†files and use third-party software to save and combine all those images
  • Be sure your Vision Acquisition Software is compatible with your version of LabVIEW by looking at this link here .
