We recently received a ticket from one of our users that the FPS indicator does not change when he changes the Source FPS using “Image” > Set Source FPS". I understand that the first FPS indicator represents the Playback FPS so that one should not change, but it seems like the second FPS indicator (the one that represents the actual measured fps) should be changing when the Source FPS changes. For example, after changing the Source FPS to 10, one would expect the second indicator to hover around 10. Instead, it continues to hover around the Playback FPS value (i.e. 24) even though the video is clearly playing at 10 FPS. Could this be a bug?
Some more comments per a team member of mine:
Based on this in the rv docs:
“There are two FPS indicators on the timeline. The first indicates the target FPS, the second the actual measured playback FPS.”
It really sounds like both numbers should be looking at whatever is current, not just the Global FPS setting, and that at least the 2nd number should be accurate, if it’s the “actual measured playback FPS”. It’s not intuitive to set a source FPS at 10 FPS, have playback be 10 fps, but have that computed FPS indicator number always right around 24. Is there a good reason that you couldn’t instead display the actual computed FPS in that kind of case?
It’s especially hard when doing a Sync with other users, to know if they’re getting the same FPS change that you set on your session, when there’s no UI element to display that.
