Hello to ALL revies,

The iSight works great from within REV ( the docs about video grabbing 
are terrible)
Apple says that iSight is not a DV camera and as such do not support it 
in iMovie or in iDVD, Final Cut,  etc.
But it works great in REV - this should be exploited.

There are a lot of gripes about iSight not working in 'other' apps in 
the online chats but with rev anyone could build a good web app.

HHMMMMM

Tom
