  • Range / Valid values: 0 - 2147483647
  • Default: 0 (disabled)
  • Group: Output - General

Specifies the number of frames to be captured after motion has been detected., Specifies the number of frames to be captured after motion has been detected.

The purpose of this is mainly to create smooth video clips each time motion is detected. Use it to you personal taste (and disk space)..

This option is the preferred way to create continuous movies. Post_capture does not consume extra RAM and it does not create pauses in the movie even with large values.

If you only store mpegs movies and do not have output_normal on, then the recommended post_capture value is what is equivalent to 1-5 seconds of movie.
