best way for capturing video in jitter? jit.qt.record? jit.qt.grab?

    Hello all,
    I try to use jit.qt.record for capturing, but I get only low quality at low framerates. I capture 720p 50 via a Blackmagic Card.
    I originally used jit.qt.grab directly for capturing. That worked actually fine, but with strange delay as you can see here: https://cycling74.com/forums/jit-qt-grab-with-capture-delay-in-snow-leopard
    My project is all about good timing... I basically have to capture some scenes of a person in a greenbox. The person is doing 3 different actions and I have to record one clip for each action. I thought in the worst case I have to record the clips to disk then open them immediately in the max patch and then somehow set the in and out points manually and then export... I seem to be very desperate right now :)
    many thx, florian

      Not sure I can be of help, but have you messed with the jit.qt.grab settings like vmode? I'm not sure what's causing the delay but I think I recall a project where the compression was slowing down the capture.

      What codec are you using in jit.qt.record? This would have a big impact on performance.
      Alternatively, have you looked at jit.matrixset?
