Pupil v0.5 Release

July 3, 2015

Pupil Capture and Player release version 0.5

We are happy to release the latest version of Pupil software. As usual the installers for Mac OS and Linux are below. Windows will follow.

New Features

  • New unified video capture backend: pyUVC - No more patching of Linux. Single USB support everywhere!
  • MJPEG recording option. (Uses no CPU but makes bigger files, currently for Linux only -Mac works when running from source).
  • Fixation detector for Pupil Player.
  • Pupil and gaze data is now also saved in a pickled file. We use this internally for Pupil Player
  • Now you can open a different recording in Pupil Player simply by dragging it onto an existing window.
  • Pupil Player now opens a blank window when started without recording. You can drag and drop a recording into this “dummy” to open a recording.
