I’m a Physics undergrad doing Neuro-Biology research using computer vision. We are using two FLIR Blackfly cameras, exact model is: BFS-U3-244S8M-C, and use SpinView for video acquisition.
We have a problem where above a certain FPS(6 to be exact) and image compression quality, frames are getting “stuck” in the buffer and very quickly pile up and we have to stop the recording. Another issue is that sometimes after some work done, say we used 6fps, we can now only use 4fps without this issue occurring.
FLIR support is of no help, it sounds like the support staff doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. What’s baffling about it is the fact that I know that this is supposed to be a RAM issue as the CPU and SSD barely use 10-20% of their resources for this while I can see the RAM getting filled up in task manager, but when I switch cameras everything seems to be fine(up to a certain point, let’s say 8fps and then it’s getting buffer issues again).
Has anyone had this happen to them? Can I fix this by having faster RAM or operate it on a quad channel setting?
Thanks in advance, I’ll be sure to hang around and show this place to other students, looks like we can learn a lot.
