Can I change the Frames Per Second on an avi capture? The highest rate that I have found is with the "Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2" at around 30fps. (This is the default, I don't know if there is a whay to change it.) My incomming feed is at 62.5fps, so I would like the avi fps to be as close to that as possible.

Normally the codec uses the frame rate, that is used by the video capture device. IC Imaging Control does not have an interface to set the frame rate of an AVI file, except the configuration dialog of the codec itself. If this does not offer a frame rate, then ther is no chance to change it.

How can I get into the configuration dialog?

Please see here:

here, to check, whether the codec has a property dialog:

Maybe I can help here....
Frame rate is not important while capturing..
EDIT: unless you have a specific reason.. analysing fast movement, maybe?

However, it's very easy to change FPS afterwards.
You could change 60fps to 30fps.
Then you gonna see all your original frames at half play speed.

With free tools like VirtualDub or Avisynth, this is easy to do.
Not every codec supports it, you must try several different codecs.

Huffyuv is the best :losless.
A good DV codec is possible also.

But I doubt if your computer is capable to play at full speed real 60fps.
If this is for play speed, it is better to convert to 25 or 30fps,
preserving the original 60fps play speed.

You may refer to this step by step guide to change AVI frame rate (http://www.idealshare.net/video-converter/frame-rate-converter.html)
This guide applies to:

Change video frame rate from 1 to 60 especially among 23.97fps, 24fps, 25fps, 29.97fps, 30fps, 50i/p, 60i/p, 72p, 120p, 300p and etc;
Change frame rate of video files of all variety like change AVI frame rate, change MP4 frame rate, change frame rate of MOV, Apple ProRes, R3D, AVCHD, WMV, MKV, VOB, DV, WTV, FLV, SWF, MXF, RMVB and more;
Change video frame rate as well as keep the same video format;
Change frame rate as well as convert video to other format;
