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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
