I’m doing a live performance and mix live PAL video from a IDS falcon quattro with prerendered footage, MJPEG codec, 1280x720 @ 25fps.
Perf meter says it’s not the workload.
I’ve read about the hz problem concerning the videotexture node.
my card just lets me set the refreshrate to 60hz.
regardless if single monitor or spanned desktop.
I have one GTX 8800 with a monitor for preview a projector for output.
with the framegrabber deactivated, fraps shows 60fps on the output renderer.
no stuttering, altough i play the 25fps video.
when i activate the falcon card, the framerate drops to 50fps (palx2?) and i get light stuttering.
I tried encoding the video @ 30fps and setting the videotexture to wait for every 2nd frame, but then it gets worse. Is this impossible if i want to use PAL video?
as far as i know, the videoinput is culprit for vvvv running on aprox 50fps (which sounds like 25fps interlaced). and i guess the jittering is also caused by the capturing rather than the filestreamed video.
you could try grabbing via the vlc plugin which uses an external thread.
