Hi folks, I’m starting to use Syphon and its Recorder app to capture a video of the output of my Cinder app. Thanks to https://github.com/gaborpapp/Cinder-Syphon I’ve been able to get setup pretty easily with a Syphon server to publish the output of my app to the Recorder. Everything works as expected except I noticed a big FPS drop from 60 to 30 when I call
publishScreen(). Even when I draw just one red rectangle the FPS is 30.
My understanding was that Syphon was supposed to be very fast because the frame content doesn’t leave the GPU, so I’m wondering if I’m doing something wrong? Is Syphon being capped at 30 somehow? Not sure that’s relevant but my app is drawing two windows and I’m only publishing the output of one of them.
Thanks for your help
