No way to do auto restart recording for RAW?
« on: January 09, 2018, 02:07:11 AM »
Feature is there for standard video recording, but can't seem to do it for RAW.

On the cameras with limited SD bandwidth, in my use case I'm often just reading to continually restart, gaps aren't that important.

Any way? LUA maybe?

There is an option "Frame Skipping" which will prevent MLV_REC from stopping when buffer is full. Side effect: Corrupt frames.

Well I mean gaps don't matter as in the kind of gaps you get if you keep pressing record again immediately after recording stops due to dropped frames. i.e. lot's of ~10sec files with no dropped frames, but large gaps in continuity. I can still use this footage by patching over where the gaps are with another cam or b-roll. But it would be nice if I could just hit record and not have to keep watching for when I can record again.

The 'Frame Skipping' option just creates a jumble of corrupt and non corrupt frames, completely unusable.

Is this something I could do with a LUA script maybe?
