Motion - Config Option Framerate

framerate

  • Type: Integer
  • Range / Valid values: 2 - 100
  • Default: 100 (no limit)
  • Group: Image Processing

Maximum number of frames to be captured from the camera per second., Maximum number of frames to be captured from the camera per second.

The faster you fetch pictures from the camera the more CPU load you get and the more pictures get included when Motion is detected.

Motion will stop storing pictures if the framerate is set to less than 2.

Set this parameter to the maximum number of images per second that you want to store either as images or as mpeg films.

To set intervals longer than one second use the 'minimum_frame_time' option instead.
