Hi,

Is it possible to connect two cameras on two separate Firewire ports. Would that mean that I have 2 Grabber objects and two frames coming in?

Are there any limits to the resolution of the video coming in the 2 firewire ports.

Thanks,

Hello,

The answer to your questions is "yes".

If you use only one FireWire board with more than one FireWire plugs, then you should have a look on the band width allocation here:

If you use two FireWire boards in your computer, than you should not have problems with the FireWire band width allocation. If you have to high frame rates and a very big video format, you may recieve problems with the PCI band width.
