Part Number: DLP4500
I am using the DLP4500 for 3D Pointcloud generation. My setup also includes a BFLY-PGE-13E4C/M-CS Point Grey BlackFly camera (Global Shutter). I have made the connections according to the manual. The connections between the camera and the DLP4500 are as follows:
DLP4500 - J11 || PointGrey BlackFly Camera (6-pin GPIO connector)
Pin 2 --> Pin 3 (Red Wire)
Pin 3 --> Pin 5 (Blue Wire)
The GPIO connecter labelling for the camera mentined above was referenced from here : https://www.ptgrey.com/support/downloads/10202
I have followed all the steps for installing and running the DLP_LightCrafter_4500_3D_Scan_Application. On startup however I get the ERROR: PG_FLYCAP_C_SET_FORMAT_7_FAILED message. The full output on startup is as follows:
Connecting to projector...Configuring projector...Connecting to camera...Configuring camera...Camera setup FAILED!ERRORS: 2 and WARNINGS: 0ERROR: PG_FLYCAP_C_SET_FORMAT_7_FAILEDERROR: CAMERA_NOT_SETUP
Step 2: Prepare DLP LightCrafter 4500 (once per projector) also runs perfectly but in the camera calibration step (Step 4) I get the following errors:
Loading camera calibration settings...Setting up camera calibrationCamera calibration setup FAILED:ERRORS: 4 and WARNINGS: 0ERROR: CALIBRATION_PARAMETERS_MODEL_SIZE_MISSINGERROR: CALIBRATION_PARAMETERS_MODEL_SIZE_MISSINGERROR: CALIBRATION_PARAMETERS_IMAGE_SIZE_MISSINGERROR: CALIBRATION_PARAMETERS_IMAGE_SIZE_MISSING
I have checked my camera in the FlyCap software and I'm able to get live video and capture images from it perfectly. I would appreciate any help on this problem. Thank you.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Sidharth Makhija:
SanjeevHi Sidharth, Okay there are two things - TIDA-00254_3D_Scanner_LCr4500-2.0 application is pre-built binary that is built using DLP 3D SDK you use it for out-of-box demo using specific model of PointGrey camera or a general web-cam. Since you talked about making it work with another model of camera which is not supported in the DLP 3D SDK first thing you need to add support for it and make it work, and then rebuild the application with updated SDK. I hope this helps. Regards,Sanjeev
When you mention adding support for the camera, you mean altering the Format 7? Is there any resource I could refer to where another camera support is added to the SDK. Right now I am following the steps from the follwoing manual: http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/dlpu019a/dlpu019a.pdf
Would modifying the cpp file in the SDK folder affect how the DLP_LightCrafter_4500_3D_Scan_Application behaves? I'm not very clear on how that part. Could you please explain abit more on that? Thank you. Also, I have also contacted the PointGrey and they have mentioned that there is no significant difference between the Flea3 and BlackFly which I am using in the case of Format 7.
Let me know you are able to make progress and where you are stuck.
Were you able to setup Format 7 mode on BlackFly camera model with Pointgrey libraries and GUI software? This part is nothing to do with the TI DLP SDK. If it worked please attache the PointGrey GUI snap-shot settings with this thread.
