I am planning to build a set up for experimentation in which I need to get automatic video capture.
My original plan was to use MATLAB and take pictures which could be joined together later (in order to avoid videos being too heavy during acquisition and because I don't need to have too many fps). MATLAB has the advantage that many users have done this before and there's plenty code available.
However, I have some problems with this original idea. Mainly, the computer I'll probably be using doesn't have/will crash because of MATLAB requirements. I was wondering if anything similar to that can be built in R.
I might also explore python alternatives (although I do not manage the language) because it seems that there are also alternatives there. But I prefer R because I'm used to it
