TofuLynx
Hey
10:22
TofuLynx
I think I know why that error happens
10:24
TofuLynx
Imagine a 8x8 image. When you enter the cycle with 2 PixelsToSkip
10:25
futarisIRCcloud
left the channel
10:25
TofuLynx
The index goes from 0, to 2, to 4, to 6, and there a problem happens:
10:27
TofuLynx
The if condition becomes true and it jumps a _width, becoming 16 and then the cycle increments it to 18, making it skip the index 16 entirely. Along with this, when the if becomes true, dataIndex shouldn't increment
10:27
TofuLynx
But it does increment regardless of the if condition being true or not
10:28
TofuLynx
Hope I was clear enough to understand
10:28
Bertl
well, sounds like a simple and typical bug
10:30
TofuLynx
Yeah, I will try to fix it when I have the time

10:55
TofuLynx
Well I have a lot of projects to do, so I'm being stressed
10:56
supragya
TofuLynx, same... the semester projects... have 3 of them to submit in next few weeks
10:56
TofuLynx
Yeah :/
10:56
TofuLynx
But this semester I'm liking the projects
10:57
supragya
me too... that hustle though !
10:57
ashutosh_
supragya where from you belong
10:58
supragya
here at VIT now
10:58
ashutosh_
ok
10:58
supragya
TofuLynx, were you talking about the ProcessingTest bug?
10:58
supragya
ashutosh_, here for GSoC right?
10:58
TofuLynx
Yeah I were
10:59
supragya
however does that explain why the image below the line is not rendered?
10:59
ashutosh_
yes ,i know
11:00
supragya
?
11:00
ashutosh_
which image
11:00
supragya
selected project or domains?
11:00
supragya
ashutosh_, we were facing some problems with a task... lot of backstory
11:00
supragya
check logs if you are interested
11:00
Bertl
ashutosh_: check out https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/GSoC_Overview
11:00
TofuLynx
Maybe it does. Dunno.
11:01
supragya
wierd because I still don't get why the image render is cut in half
11:02
TofuLynx
Yeah
11:02
TofuLynx
Going to have driving lesson now. See ya :)
11:02
supragya
anyways... had some success with AVI headers BAndiT1983|away, it's looking great now. We just need to populate frames avi debug stopped complaining now
11:03
supragya
I guess the task is just size calculation now
11:03
supragya
and to check if value of BITMAP header is alright
11:03
rton
joined the channel
11:04
supragya
BAndiT1983|away, was able to populate one frame, no errors howver, no result as the sizes are wrong and (maybe BITMAP header)
11:04
supragya
back to TofuLynx , what exactly is the job of ProcessingTest?
11:04
supragya
just test the processing?
11:06
supragya
Bertl, BTW why don't we have travis or appveyor for testing on windows straight away?
11:06
supragya
I mean OpenCine
11:07
ashutosh_
supragya i know c and java
11:07
Bertl
supragya: you have to check with BAndiT1983|away
11:08
ashutosh_
so you can suggest me any work related to c
11:09
supragya
well C has vast applications: kernel development, QEMU related and OpenCine
11:10
supragya
here is what you can take up from: https://lab.apertus.org/tag/google_summer_of_code_2018/
11:10
supragya
or propose your own
11:11
Bertl
(which is linked on the wiki page I suggested to read :)
11:11
supragya
exactly
11:12
supragya
I have been working on T763, TofuLynx on T722... so if you have any questions regarding those, feel free to ask ;)

nmdis1999
Bertl, when cropping image what should be the dimensions?
13:03
nmdis1999
How's it going supragya?
13:04
supragya
Nice... last exam tmrw
13:04
supragya
how about you nmdis1999
13:04
nmdis1999
Cool, sams though I don't have to study for it.. It's communication skills
13:04
nmdis1999
I'll finally be able to work on my tool
13:05
Bertl
best to make that an option to the tool
13:05
supragya
(you should rephrase that) XD
13:06
Bertl
i.e. something like -w and -h or maybe x11 notation for a window ala 100x200+10+20
13:07
nmdis1999
I see... I will do that. If everything works well I guess I'll complete it soon and upload it on my github profile.
13:07
nmdis1999
Rephrase what @supragya?

Thank you , as I can see there are various projects , may I know do we have to compulsorily go through each and every challenge?
17:14
TofuLynx__
joined the channel
17:14
supragya
no, the challenges are based on the projects you are applying for
17:15
supragya
see here: https://lab.apertus.org/tag/google_summer_of_code_2018/, select a project, and find the line which tells the number of the required challenge to be completed

supragya
apertus is concerned with FPGA development, linux KERNEL, and OpenCine project (made on Qt)
17:20
supragya
OC is C++ based, linux kernel is C mainly.
17:20
supragya
python is used feebly in caliberation file generation to say the least
17:21
supragya
but that is not a project titled up on phabicator
17:22
jack__
Is there also requirement like Pull Request etc in addition to solving challenges?
17:22
supragya
found some python here maybe: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Beta/Manual#Factory_Calibration
17:22
supragya
generally PR would be better if you could do so obviously, but are not required
17:23
supragya
however, really check with project mentors on this jack__

great insight on the project
17:45

however, that was not long though, right?
17:47
Bertl_oO
it was almost an hour long, no?
17:47
supragya
yes
17:47
Bertl_oO
or do you mean not long ago?
17:48
supragya
I mean it was 2016 when it was shot right?
17:48
supragya
Bertl_oO, I love you workbench... all that electronics XD....
17:48
Bertl_oO
yep, May 2016
17:48
Bertl_oO
or maybe shortly after, would have to check
17:49

that's when it was uploaded it seems, 28th of May was the event
17:51
Bertl_oO
The Open Hardware Europe Summit is for the first time taking place in Vienna, Austria. It's held on Saturday, 28th May 2016 at MAK (Museum of Applied Arts) as part of the Coded Cultures "Openism" festival.

18:05
Bertl_oO
I don't think that there is an Open Hardware Europe Summit planned this year
18:07
supragya
btw, Bertl_oO if I may ask, how did you got involved in the project? Heard sebastian say "Then we found Herbert...". are you full time on this?
18:07
Bertl_oO
feels like ... :)
18:08
Bertl_oO
well, the story is kind of funny but it shows how it works in open source:
18:09
Bertl_oO
he (sebastian) did write on various fablab mailing lists that he was building a camera and looking for somebody who can program the FPGA involved
18:10
Bertl_oO
I read one of those postings and answered that I can't program FPGAs yet, but it's on my todo list
18:11
Bertl_oO
a week or two later I had an FPGA development kit on my desk (Zedboard) and half a year later we had the first image from the camera :)
18:11
supragya
open source feels like where you find friends to work with :)
18:12
Bertl_oO
since then I've been with the project doing hardware and software development on the AXIOM cameras and surrounding tools and equippment
18:12
Bertl_oO
-p
18:22
Rex0r
Youse might be interested in the history if you haven't already read it - https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Project_Background
18:24
Bertl_oO
ah, yes, tx Rex
18:25
supragya
thanks Rex0r, Bertl_oO and se6astian|away gave a glimpse of the same on the video too,..
18:28
Rex0r
Good to see keen interest in the project generally in here. With any luck you guys will stick around beyond GSoC.
18:28
supragya
To be honest, at this time I am least concerned about GSoC now
18:29
supragya
Had tried to look for such community for twice or thrice in other organisation... but was with no luck
18:29
Rex0r
You more concerned about the camera?
18:29
Rex0r
Right.
18:29
Rex0r
Good stuff.
18:29
supragya
Yes...
18:30
supragya
If i knew FPGA and IC things, I would really love to work on what Bertl_oO does...
18:30
supragya
but I guess "the german engineer" needs hands too ;)
18:31
supragya
and my indentation is not upto mark anyways (hahaha), so I better stick with BAndiT1983
18:32
Rex0r
Where abouts are you based supragya?
18:32
supragya
India
18:32
supragya
clg BTech
18:32
supragya
3rd year
18:35
Rex0r
Who's the German engineer?
18:36
supragya
In the video, sebastian says "We have a german engineer working on the side project OpenCine" or something on those lines.
18:36
supragya
I think it is Andrej
18:36
supragya
BAndiT1983 as we call him here
18:37
Rex0r
Well Manfred is the engineer dealing with milling etc, and BAndiT is in Germany, but he's Russian mate.
18:37
Rex0r
(Manfred is German)
18:37
supragya
ah... forgot about him being russian
18:37
supragya
he told me once
18:38
supragya
Manfred not on IRC?
18:38
Rex0r
Very rarely.
18:38
Rex0r
Sometimes though.
18:39
supragya
same with a1ex it seems
18:39
Bertl_oO
https://www.apertus.org/es/user/646
18:40
Rex0r
Aye. Handling ML will be a full time job no doubt.
18:40
Rex0r
Is Manfred not in Germany Bertl no?
18:41
Bertl_oO
nope
18:41
supragya
what's up with the intern image we see everywhere?
18:41
Rex0r
Maybe he was in Germany once when it came up.
18:42
Rex0r
Visiting.
18:42
Bertl_oO
could be, he is travelling around a lot
18:42
Rex0r
Intern image?
18:42
Bertl_oO
supragya: you mean Frederik?
18:43
supragya
I guess
18:43
supragya
Here: https://anuejn.github.io/batic/
18:43
Bertl_oO
yeah, I guess the few test images made him famous :)
18:44
supragya
he's our lena image XD
18:44

here is another one :) https://files.apertus.org/AXIOM-Beta/snapshots/sample-images/portrait-gainx2-offset2047-20ms-01.jpg
18:45
supragya
O_o smart boy!!!!
18:50
Bertl_oO
you have to be smart (well somewhat) to get an internship at apertus :)
18:50
supragya
I hope I am smart enough for the summer. :)
18:57
supragya
Rex0r, what part of apertus do you take care of btw? HW? SW? kernel?
18:58
Rex0r
Front end stuff. Copy, promo, comms, docs, sales stuff, that sort of thing mostly.
19:00
supragya
that axiom tshirt sebastian wore was neat!
19:01
supragya
any chance I can get my hands on that stuff later?
19:01
Rex0r
Will see what the situation is. Possibly.
19:02
TofuLynx
Wait, Frederik is an intern?
19:03
Bertl_oO
he was at some point
19:04
Rex0r
supragya I also work in an advisory capacity with regards styling. I recommend the right stylists and hair products for se6astian and Bertl... but most of the time they won't listen!
19:05
Rex0r
That's a full time job on its own.
