Use the revVideoGrabSettings command to store video-capture settings you specify in the video capture dialog box.

Parameters:

The dataVariable is the name of an existing variable.

Comments:

The revVideoFrameImage command returns binary data, placing it in the dataVariable.

You specify settings for video capture in the video capture dialog box, which is displayed by the revVideoGrabDialog command. You can get the current settings with the revVideoGrabSettings command and restore them later with the revSetVideoGrabSettings command. This allows you to make changes to the video-capture settings under script control.

The value returned by the revVideoGrabSettings command consists of binary data and is not human-readable, but you can store it in a file or custom property and restore your settings later using the revSetVideoGrabSettings command.

Important! The revVideoGrabSettings command works only for QuickTime video capture. If you are capturing video with Video for Windows, the revVideoGrabSettings command does not return a meaningful value.

Important! The revVideoGrabSettings command is part of the Video library. To ensure that the command works in a standalone application, you must include this custom library when you create your standalone. In the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window, make sure that "Video Grabber" is selected from the list of script libraries.
