Frame rate control in video capture mode.

Postby tmorley » Sat Feb 03, 2018 4:50 pm

Hi, it would be useful to have the ability to control the frame rate in video capture mode seperatley from the exposure time.

I know if I want short exposures I could just throw away the extra frames, but it would save power and heat to just be able to set the frame rate deivered.

Thanks!

Any chance we can get a control to do this in the API?

Thanks

You can only use the USB_BANDWIDTH to control the frame rate
but it can only control the max resolution
