Hi thanks for the replies,
Yeah unfortunately Eyesweb is closed source.
I've spent quite a long time with Eyesweb and it would be a shame to
loose all that knowledge. I might have to think about using two
machines, one with Windows and Eyesweb and one with Linux & PD, although
this isn't an ideal solution.
Also I'm not sure if my 'Winfast VC 100 XP' capture card will run on
Linux, but that's a separate issue really.
Also I can't try out PiDiP properly as I am on Windows, unless I use a
Linux live cd, which is a pain.
I'd like to get away from Windows entirely, but not sure I can do what I
need without Eyesweb.
Hmm, difficult to know what to do there.
