View Full Version : Problem with frame rate slowing down

November 29, 2012, 11:33:30
Hello all,

I am using a DFK21/618 camera. In IC capture the frame rate when capturing using YUY2 and RGB24 is very erratic and keeps slowing down and speeding up and the image in the capture window keeps freezing. Occasionally there will be a night when this won't happen - but set up again another night and it happens straight away. Its driving me crackers now.

Any ideas? It happens on two laptops I'm using - which are only a few years old so spec is fine. 80Gb free on hard drive.

Thanks for reading

I'm sorry but that doesn't really help me as to what to try next

So you installed the Processor Idle State Manager?
What computer model do you use?
