Low FPS slows down the whole system.
« on: April 19, 2013, 02:09:54 AM »

I'm noticing then overriding the FPS to 1 or a low value a few things happen:

1. Updates to the screen are slowed to the same rate, so focus / exposure settings etc are very hard to change during the shooting. Can't the video be show on screen at 24fps, and the system just drops 23 of them? This is very very frustrating at less than 1fps.

2. When starting recording the video goes all white and fast then settles down after a few frames when the camera has got the correct exposure, why is this so? related to above point?

1) We are altering timers that are used by the entire system, so you'll have to live with that
