  • 1.6.5 I forgot to add the code to a few of the effects, corrected.
  • you can now negate the image and see the opposite of the spectrum, for any effect.
  • Video is now outputed at same resolution as your webcam if desired.
  • Removed the camera input preview, so it won't slow down the program.

  • This program now is compiled with minimum SDK requirement of 10.5
  • Added option to select the input device incase you have multiple devices (ie iSight, and a normal webcam).
While recording the program will slow down dramatically, however when the video is viewed it will play back at the correct frame rate/speed. (Set the desired frame rate in the Preferences window.)

About the Effects
The effects involving images, distort the view based off a still image.
The other effects, are just patterns of change to distort the data.

UPDATE @ Mon Jun 15 15:35:52 PDT 2015
Spent a long time trying to figure out why OpenCV would not compile on Yosemite. Figured it out and statically linked Acid Cam VR 1.1 with the libraries so you no longer need the MacPorts version of OpenCV installed to /opt/local for it work. It should work as long as you have the Oculus Runtime.

UPDATE @ Sat Jun 6 16:11:40 PDT 2015
Added Acid Cam VR for Oculus Rift DK2 to the site with a version for Windows and MacOS X.

UPDATE @ Sun May 17 14:39:14 PDT 2015
It seems the first version of Acid Cam (1.7.7) is incompatible with MacOS X Yosemite for some reason. So if you using Yosemite just pick up version 2 of the program.

UPDATE @ Tue May 12 14:48:53 PDT 2015
Bad news, seems apple deprecated and now dropped support for one of the libraries that SDL 1.2 that I used to compile the majority of the games on this site. So that means I have to recompile and repackage the majority of these programs to get them to work on Yosemite. So the last version supported was 10.9.

UPDATE @ Fri May 8 10:30:56 PDT 2015
Added our first program for the Oculus 2. It requires that you at least have have the Oculus 2 Runtime.
