I've tested the stills mode using the following changes to the conf file. The min frame time is set to force the FPS to 0.2 as you specifieddozencrows wrote:Time for a code update!
- First pass assembler optimisations to the image processing "hotspots". Currently only a very small gain in speed, and only if you're not using a mask image or the smart mask option.
- Option to use the Pi camera's stills mode rather than video. This can give you a wider field of view, but currently exposure control can go a bit wild if you have a frame rate faster than around 0.2 fps. So right now it's not very useful, but I'd be interested to hear others' experiences with it. See the example config file for more info.
- Some internal changes to make it easier to test changes for correctness and measure performance.
