OpenLase is an open source library and toolkit for controlling laser scanners. It has an emphasis on real-time operation and integration with audio, and it uses the JACK Audio Connection Kit as a backend.
- Classic OpenGL-like API
- Support for ILDA format sprites
- SVG to ILDA converter
- Built-in vector font
- Realtime bitmap tracer (edge detection)
- Python bindings
- Video player (using the bitmap tracer)
- Output processor GUI with perspective correction (projecting from an angle) and level controls.
OpenLase can be used with any laser scanner controlled by a sound card, or anything that can interface with JACK. The projector used here is a rather crude DIY scanner.
