I have three IIDC firewire cameras plugged into a firewire 400 hub, then coming into a macbook pro. This is just a test but I don’t understand my results. I only want to grab two cams at any one time, but want to be able to change which two I have open (ie input0 + input1, then change to input0 + input2) .
If I start the patch with all three cams plugged in, then the framerate is unworkable – so I assume I am over the limits of the macbook pro’s firewire bus.
BUT, if I start the patch with only two cams plugged in, open them both, THEN plug in the third camera… I am able to switch between input 1 and 2, while input 0 keeps running just as I wanted to – getting 30fps.
Does anyone know why this is, and if there is a way to get this to work starting with all 3 cams plugged in?
(also, would it make a difference if I ran them all in through a firewire 800 hub into a firewire 800 plug? I guess not, right?)
