April 19th, 2012, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Grabber Plug-in 2.3 for FileMaker Pro 12.

What is Troi Grabber Plug-in?

Troi Grabber Plug-in 2.3 is a very powerful tool for grabbing images from a video camera and putting them directly into a FileMaker container field. All from within FileMaker Pro 12 you can:

  • preview the image stream from the video input source
  • crop pictures to grab only the desired part of the video image
  • rotate pictures before grabbing
  • grab pictures from a video input source and put them into your FileMaker database
  • record a movie from a video input source for a specified number of seconds or until the mouse is clicked and save the movie to a specified file on the hard disk
  • get timecodes of a recorded movie; you can get the timecode of the beginning of the movie, of the end of the movie, the timecode at the current point in the movie or the duration of the movie in timecode

New Features and bug fixes

Troi Grabber Plug-in 2.3 adds support for FileMaker Pro 12, with examples in the new .fmp12 file format. This release also adds a new example file, which demonstrates how to automatically install the plug-in directly from a container field.

Version 2.3 has the following new features and fixes:

  • Made compatible and tested with FileMaker Pro 12.
  • Added new switch "-GetPluginInstallPath" to the Grab_Version function: This switch will return the path where a plug-in is installed.
  • Added new example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12, which contains the plug-ins and can install the plug-in from within FileMaker Pro 12.
  • Made small change to the bundle (on Mac OS X) and FileVersion resource (on Windows) so it now reflects the correct version number.
  • Fixed a bug in Grab_GrabImage and QuickTimeClassic, which could cause the grabbing an image to fail with error code $$-2020.
  • Improved several other example files and made other internal improvements.

Suggested Uses

  • festival-, meeting- or conference registration database with pictures
  • medical database with pictures of the patients' condition
  • easy recording of auditions or casting
