When using PIP version 19 or higher build dependencies are handled automatically.
Installation may take some time since the
setup.py script will download additional dependencies and compile C++ source code in the background.
pip install zivid
If you are using a version of PIP older than version 19 please manually install the dependencies listed in pyproject.toml before installing zivid.
pip install scikit-build cmake ninja pip install zivid
Launch a Python interpreter and run the following code.
import zivid app = zivid.Application() camera = app.connect_camera() frame = camera.capture() frame.save("my-frame.zdf")
For more advanced usage see the Examples section.
Using camera emulation
If you do not have a camera, you can use the
MiscObjects.zdf file in ZividSampleData.zip to emulate a camera.
import zivid app = zivid.Application() camera = app.create_file_camera("path/to/MiscObjects.zdf") frame = camera.capture() frame.save("my-frame.zdf")
Standalone example programs can be found in the samples directory.
