v4 writes from 2 station to a directory on a third pc. i check with dir node how many files are in this directory and generate a new filename with an ongoing numbering.
how can I setup this pcs for the best performance? giga ethernet, is there an advantage integrate the shared folder as a network folder.
and how can I prevent that the file writing interrupts the loop for a few milliseonds?

Have a look at starting a second instance of vvvv and sharing the texture through SharedTexture or Screenshot.
yes giga ethernet will improve write time. doubt any advantage how you address that share. having a ‘quiet’ network would help too. fast hard drives won’t help.
as GG says, you’ll need to share the texture to another thread and save to prevent vvvv freeze.
Or use screen shot to capture the other instances output instead of shaded texture, if thats an issue, another idea is to write locally and then use copy to move the file across the network.
