WebCam Tracker v0.9.0

For whatever reason I wanted to spend a little more time on my WebCam Tracker program by throwing a UI on top of it.  I did and it turned out reasonably well for my first foray into SWT.

3 things I would still like to do:

  1. Thread the image retrieval process.  It’s done but something happens with the output streams on the new thread which causes it to hang when System.out is called.  If I figure that out it’ll be easy to re-implement.
  2. Implement the progress bar at the bottom of the window.  It should be able to track the progress based upon the provided duration easily enough.
  3. Come up with a better widget for picking the duration and delay times.

Since I took a little bit of extra time to glossy it up a bit, there’s no sense in making it go to waste.  I threw the code & the distribution up on Google Code.  You can see it at WebCam Tracker.

Another time-lapse I did using WebCam Tracker.  Kinda neat.

Let me know what you think, and of course I welcome any comments/feedback about the app.  Not that I’ll necessarily do anything about them… I don’t plan on spending much time on it… but I’d like to know.
