EyeCreate in Action

Greg Lutton's Avatar + Posted by Greg Lutton on Oct 11, 2007 // Assistant Producer, SCEA

What’s up PlayStation fans? I wanted to get the word out to all of you to check out EyeCreate, the new video capturing and editing application for the PlayStation 3. With EyeCreate you can capture darn near anything and make your own personalized videos, much like the examples I’ve included below. You can also add all sorts of cool effects, record your own sounds and export your video to the XMB. Some of the coolest features include the time-lapse capturing and the stop-motion functionality. If you want to show off your videos, you can drop your creation on a memory stick or USB drive and share it with other PS3 users. The increased resolution of the PSEye and the multi-array microphone combined with the huge storage capacity of the PS3, make the possibilities endless. And last but not least, EyeCreate will be available for FREE download on the PlayStation Store on October 23rd. To get an idea of what EyeCreate can do, check out these vids our team made.

Happy Creating!

My fav was the race, this is really cool, and a surprise with the xmb export function, since I heard before that it was said that It couldn’t be done.

Question!!!!

I hope then we can show our movies we make in Home, right?

please give us confirmation of that, i heard we could show anything on our hard drive or usb sticks in our Home picture frames/movie players!


36

+ Nymo on October 11th, 2007 at 10:43 pm said:

Sounds like even more, (free!) fun on the PS3!

Keep on bringing the (free… or cheap, well any) PS EYE support!

OMG I’m shure you can.
That will be so cool.

That’s really cool. Can’t wait to see what I can do myself. It’d be cool if you could upload created videos onto YouTube . . . just a thought.

It works with old Playstation EyeToy too?

+ Savage on October 12th, 2007 at 3:08 am said:

Does EyeCreate only allow editing of Eye videos or any videos? What encoding does it use?


42

+ HESH on October 12th, 2007 at 3:47 am said:

Will definitely be getting the EYE (assuming the UK release is the same as the US) and will be using the EyeCreate software.
Questions –
Can you edit any video clips (saved home movies etc) with EyeCreate or only movies imported with the EYE?
Are there any new codecs supported (linked to the first Q)?
How long can you make the clips?

+ Sly_Ripper on October 12th, 2007 at 5:10 am said:

OK, this made me want to buy it for sure. Also, i so want to work with you guys. :D

+ willywhisky on October 12th, 2007 at 5:19 am said:

I think that interactivity will be the key to the success or failure of the new eyetoy.

If in game and out of game experiences can interact with the user through the camera then this will be a win for Sony and steal a bit of Nintendo’s thunder.

If this product lacks interactivity or PSN online integration, then it will be a fail.

I think that there are a lot of people watching to see how Sony does with this new product and that the course of the PS3 could be plotted alongside it.

Can you edit videos allready esisting on the hard drive?

WTF IS WITH ALL THESE SPAM LIKE BLOG ENTRIES?!? THEY’VE BEEN GETTING VERY FREQUENT LATELY!

sorry but noone is responding from their end about these so i decided to add 1 of these questions to each of the blogs til WE get answers.

on a positive note, there is great possibilities with the eye! :)

+ FasuXe on October 12th, 2007 at 7:08 am said:

You know, these videos would probably look better if they were encoded in xvid or divx…..
And the PS3 could actually play them!!!!

For all the people who make ridiculous comments about the video quality, please note that your average desktop webcam cannot do true 640×480 resolution at full frame rate. Some can do 352×288 interpolated to 640×480 at (if you’re lucky) 15fps, but even this is very rare outside Firewire cameras.

Your mobile phone may have a higher resolution for /still/ photos, but in video mode you’ll notice it probably limits you to 160×120 for a decent framerate. Capturing at a high frame rate with high resolution is very bandwidth intensive, and not as easy as some people seem to think, electronically.

PS. this is also why a wireless version will probably never exist — not enough bandwidth on wireless to support 26.4MiB/s of raw data (640 x 480 x 24bpp x 30fps). Yes, most webcams do basic per-frame compression, but its still very high bandwidth, not the type of thing Bluetooth was designed for.

Personally speaking, I wish the PS3 had been designed with Firewire (IEEE1394) support and used a Firewire webcam instead of USB and therefore also support downloading videos directly from digital video cameras with Firewire / i.Link support.
