Scratch 3 and Raspi V2 Camera

Wed Mar 01, 2023 6:09 pm

I haven't been able to find anything for Scratch 3. There are older suggestions/instructions but nothing I have tried lets me take a photo with the camera attached to a Raspi 3B+. I am beginning to think this was not a priority for the creators of Scratch 3. If anyone has succeeded, using Scratch 3, in taking a photo, naming it and storing it in a folder on Raspi, I would be very grateful to learn how to do this.

From 2019: “.. Scratch 3 really requires more than the 1GB of RAM available on the Pi 3B+; it will only run reliably on a Pi 4.”

But anyway, could you set a GPIO high/low with scratch and have a python script that waits for that GPIO to change, then takes a photo, names it, and stores it?
