Hi guys. with Ecks and I compeating in another 24hour challenge. i was thinking of recording the whole lot, pulling out the good parts (or speeding the whole thing up lots) and releasing a video as a kind of tute of how we did it.
watching others and how they work is interesting.
well i was wanting to capture 24 hours of footage, preferably at 12 frames a second and upwards. but i was wanting to do so without slowing the computer down to much. (dunno if thats possible)
i was possibl thinking of using another computer to somehow capture it, but i don’t know how i would do that (perhaps i could connect another computer to this via a virtual desktop… i assume that uses no-or little extra CPU)
the other problem is my monitor is 1600x1200, is there a way to capture that at full res? or will i need to do 800x600 or somthing (and let people try and guess what buttons i am pressing?
if we can’t find a sollution that will work on this computer, or via an X server or somthing, then how about a program that will take a screenshot every 1 minute for example. (1,440 frames). i guess it would not show things as well but would be ok.
anyone know the performance hit of a screenshot? would it be possible to model and screenshot every 5 seconds perhaps?
we will be going pretty nuts on the modeling so the lowest performance hit is important.
