I will be teaching a two day Raspberry Pi workshop at Machine Project on Wednesday, March March 12th and Monday, March 17th 2014. The workshop will focus on using the Raspberry Pi camera module with an emphasis on capturing time lapse videos.
The first class session will focus on getting the Raspberry Pi set up, learning the commands for the HD camera board and preparing a time lapse video capture script using the Python programming language. For homework, each student will shoot a time lapse video of their choice.
In the second class meeting we will cover how to convert the time lapse images into a video file for presentation. Each student will then show their time lapse video to the class. As time permits we will also cover modifications for the time lapse script, capturing video files to disk and using the pi camera board’s image effects remotely as a realtime “Video Synth.” We’ll also demonstrate a pan and tilt servo controller for the camera board.
