Modifying individual PixelFormat settings for Dual streams of a Multispectral Camera

This works perfectly as long as the saving time is shorter than 1/fps. I.e. there are always buffers available.

The intention of FlowSetInfo is to give infos about size and alignment, i.e. memory stuff.
(We developed the Flows with external memory, like a GPU, in mind).
So not the number of “queued” buffers.

If you are using GigE you can access the Nodemap of the Datastream.

I will post a small snippet in the next post …

Or even simpler:
Number of Buffers in Pool = Number of Buffer - Numbers of Buffers you currently hold.

I’m not entirely certain this is compatible with the AcquistionStack::GenTL, but maybe it helps.

  // basic success

  return ~uint64_t(0); // i.e. max value is error or not available
