BUG: recording fps rate : notice and fix (motion-3.2.12-trunk.r557)
Though the addition of the cnt->process_thisframe variable and associated "if(cnt->process_thisframe)" tests greatly reduces processor utilization with minimal functional impact, an unfortunate side-effect of the new variable and test is the frame-rate of recorded video is reduced to the rate limit (i.e. cnt->lastrate / 3), which at present is 3fps.
One (of many) implemented and tested options which will correct the probem is to replace the three occurances of "if(cnt->process_thisframe)" tests in the motion.c source-code file with "if((cnt->process_thisframe || cnt->detecting_motion)" tests. Again, this change to the three lines of source-code in motion.c was tested and - in my environment - corrected the problem with no negative impact.
