Possible to snapshot without updating IDE?

Is it possible to do a sensor.snapshot without updating the IDE? I’m trying to do something like the follow (based on the frame differencing example)

    ir_leds.off();
    extra_fb.replace(sensor.snapshot())

    ir_leds.on();
    img = sensor.snapshot() # Take a picture and return the image.
    img.difference(extra_fb)

The IDE is flickering between the dark/light images making it hard to see anything.

Thanks

Not right now. But, it’s simple to add. Please make a github issue for this on the openmv repo.

Alternatively, if you program the camera through the open terminal method then you have direct control over what gets sent to the PC.

Okay great, the serial terminal mode is great for my needs. I’m using print(img.compress_for_ide(), end=’’) to send the image to the terminal after processing.

Thanks
