We have the Axis camera on our shooter to help with aiming and would like to put a vertical line though the middle of the image.
We tried to used the built in Axis feature to do this http://www.axis.com/files/manuals/um_m10_41738_en_1101.pdf [Page 19]
that lets us upload an image, however does anyone know what format the image has to be?
We tried gif, jpeg, bmp, png with fail to upload errors. The files were about 7kb.
Our team doesn’t have the new camera, so I can’t determine if what you ask is possible camera side…But if you are open to using Labview, you can modify the dashboard project (the window with the camera feed) to display the crosshairs.
This post provides instructions on how to do so.
It is from this thread, which can give you some more ideas/help.
Not sure if you figured it out, but I just played with this last night.
You need to make sure your image is the same resolution that your camera is set to and save the image as a 24 bit BMP. I used GIMP 2 to do this (freeware photo editor, similar to photoshop). Paint might work?
In my case, I just made a picture with a white background. Type in “FFFFFF” when asked for the transparency color.
There is also a setting on one of the menus in the camera to enable the overlay for streaming, make sure you check this as well.
