Testing a material project with- Webcam help


We are making a project in which i will be testing a materials length as well as its temperature and the ressitivity. So far my team has worked countless hours and we are at a point which we need assistance from NI.



We will be using a 1 camera to capture an image, save it to a folder, and bring it back to labview to measure its pixels in respect to the real world. Our issue is having the webcam start when its told to>Saving the picture into a file>thus having labview call it back to return to another part of our vi to display it and measure the pixels. Please VI help us get this working.

Hello ElectricEels,


Thanks for posting at NI forums! I would recommend you to post at this forum which is for Vision equipment; they can give you more feedback regarding IMAQ VIs and images managing.


Best Regards,
