FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Troi Automatisering releases Troi Grabber Plug-in 1.2 for FileMaker Pro 5
New ready-to-use Plug-in lets wide array of cameras grab images directly
into FileMaker Pro 5 databases.
Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, November 8, 1999–Troi Automatisering
today announced the release of Troi Grabber Plug-in 1.2, for FileMaker Pro
5 both on Mac OS and Windows.
This cross platform plug-in gives FileMaker Pro the ability to grab a
picture from a video input source and to place it into a container field.
The plug-in can grab the images directly into FileMaker Pro without the
need of a separate application.
Peter Baanen, company president, states that “This plug-in had to be
tweaked a little for FileMaker Pro 5. We are very proud to announce that
now all our 9 plug-ins work flawlessly with FileMaker 5. And as a bonus we
added support for Windows and added new features.”
New sophisticated rotate and crop functions
The Troi Grabber Plug-in 1.2 is now even better suited for the use in
specialized situations, like for example grabbing multiple portrait images.
You can now rotate the image 90, -90 or 180 degrees. With this you can not
only capture images in landscape but also capture images in portrait
orientation. And if you want a part of the image you can now also grab only
that part of the image that is inside a rectangle. (Rotate and Cropping are
available for Mac OS only).
Other suggested uses
Suggested uses for this plug-in are: a webcam database, time lapse
pictures, Easy casting, festival- meeting- or conference registration
database, a security database. We’ve added a User Guide and sample
databases, including a Trade Show example, which shows the plug-in’s ease
of use. The use of this plug-in is only limited by your imagination.
