I have found that Firecapture has a very erratic behaviour when capturing video files.
Video file sizes are all different for the same ROI and exposure time. If I set a fixed number of frames to capture, the captures stalls. If I set a fixed period of capture time, the files end up being of different sizes. The frame rates of the captures video files are all over the place too. I tried both SER and AVI, same results.
I tried reducing the USB speed and it does not change a thing.
The frame rate shown on the screen during capture is always much higher than the actual frame rate of the video files.
If I use Sharpcap instead, all works like clock work. The frame rate is very fast and consistent. The video files are all of the same size and same frame rate
I use a Win10 laptop with USB 3.0 port, a SSD HD and a ASI224MC.
I would prefer Firecapture as it has guiding feature but I cannot get it to work reliably.
Am I missing something?
