Static Noise With Video

Hey processing world!

Still very new at this so I apologize in advance. I took a few different codes from online and I want to combine them together to make my camera on my laptop control the static. I pretty much want the shadow of a human figure or object to be seen underneath (or on top of the static). Anytime I do this however, I cant figure out how to get the data to read with a static image that's moving.

Capture video;

int videoScale=10;
void setup() {

  size(512, 512); 
  video = new Capture(this);  
void captureEvent(Capture video) {;
void draw() {

  for (int x = 0; x < width; x++) {
    for (int y = 0; y < height; y++) {
      float randomValue = random(255)*videoScale;
      pixels[x+y*width] = color(randomValue, randomValue, randomValue);



  • Edit post, highlight code, press Ctrl-o to format.

    God, I'm so sick of typing that.

  • Got it. Done.

  • Not the solution final but here it goes: it is very unlikely your camera's dimension matches your sketch size. Instead use video.width and video.height in your for loops

    How are you detecting your shadows?
