    PyCatcher – Another timelapsy program

    I decided that for this LD I wanted to do a Timelapse. I wanted a timelapse program that

    • Ran natively on Linux.
    • Produces a screen shot of the desktop with an image of my webcam inline – not the other way round.
    • Be something that I can start in a terminal and forget about.
    • Not spit out a movie at the end and decide on what format or quality it should be – instead it should give me a bunch of images in a numbered sequence that I can then concatenate with ffmpeg or something myself.

    So I wrote PyCatcher, poking it for half an hour every day for the past week. I got my webcam displaying inline last night, so while it’s not as feature rich as I have planned it does work.

    If this sound relevant to ones interests you can grab it here- http://github.com/Fiona/pycatcher/tree/master

    This Ludum Dare I’ll be using PyCatcher for timelapse and writing my game in Python/Pygame using my Pygame-Fenix library to aid development.
