Let me just be a bit of a fanboy for a minute. Grip is amazing. For visualizing the results of common vision processing using opencv, it’s just incredible.
Are there any products on the market that work anywhere close to as well at a reasonable cost? I’m not concerned too much about the FIRST specific elements of GRIP, though those are important. (i.e. it can communicate with robots during matches very well.) I just want a program that helps me develop the algorithms for computer vision.
Grip is good enough for that, but if there were a commercial product that did the same thing, it would probably be slightly better at file handling and such, although Grip is darned good.
So, I’ll probably just continue to use Grip, and laud its creators as wonderful people, worthy of great praise, but if there were a commercial alternative, I would check it out. I just don’t know of any such product.
