I use this same webcam. The actual camera quality is excellent, but the audio quality is subpar, so I generally use a separate USB microphone for the audio. That said, I can probably help you get it working in CH. Are you on Mac or Windows?
I am on a Mac. I tried using a USB mic and that helps however I am now having problems with the camera blinking on and off constantly when activated. This causes my puppet to sometimes miss a facial expression. I am not sure if this is a separate issue but it seemed to start after I added my USB mic.
I'm having the same problem, found this googling it generally and turns out I have that same webcam too, it's a great camera. It makes sense it all needs to be pretty fast but relying on a laptop just isn't very convenient when you have many multiple windows open and all with loads of tiny tabs and options.
Sure I expect the audio quality to be sub par o a webcam but this 920 isn't bottom of the barrel at all as webcams go. Is there any workaround? Maybe it's just getting a usb mic, sounds like.
Any recommended ones? I don't want to drop more on that and find the same issue.
My setup is a Mac laptop (closed) run into a big monitor and a wacom for drawing. I had hoped I could just mount my own webcam so I don't have to unplug everything and open it every time I want to test a puppet, but I've been through about 3 webcams already that give me that same message. It's weird not to see any more online about it though, we can't be the only ones who don't love working on a laptop screen for detailed graphics work.
Idk, something like an even rough list of some "approved" or working webcams/mics with character animator would be great. I know there a million webcams but just a few official recommendations would be great, ideally on both the cheap end and the higher end.
Thanks for any help either way.
