Frames per File
Menu Location: Settings - Global Settings
Sets how many frames (pictures) you want to store in your video file.
An example of magnitude is 1000 frames of 320x240 pixels/ frame, using RGB 24 bits/pixel using the Microsoft MPEG-4 Codec V1 takes up about 2 mega bytes of disk space.
Once the program has filled up a file of the specified size, it saves it, and then starts filling up a new file in a continuous manner. If you stop Monitor Mode or Record Mode before the video file is full the size of the video file saved will be less. In Monitor Mode if one file reached this maximum size all the files are saved even if those other files have not reached their maximum frames per file size.
If your want to access these video files remotely over the Internet, you might want to keep their size down under 2M bytes depending on the speed of your internet connection. About 2000 to 4000 frames per file is good.
