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 :)
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.
