Is there a strategy to optimize GEM video processing and real time
audio on a single Mac using pd~ :
Audio in subprocess or in main process ?
Any startup flags ? chmod +s stuff ? shm settings ?
Run two instances of PD with messages between them ?
Subprocess fifo size ?
The idea would be to give a priority to sound versus video, if
On a single Mac (pro or mini), Gem (pix_video & tracking, ordinary
resolution and fps) and real time audio (10 channels, mainly reading
from disk), dispatched on four processor cores via pd~. The sound is
generated in the subprocess (big latency 512), the video in the main
patch. pd-extended 42.5 osX 10.7 &10.6, gem 93, 92.
Sound is distorted when Gem is rendering, and becomes immediatly
perfect when stopping rendering (destroying the gem window).
Processors seem ok (each core at 75%).
Sticking with this problem for a couple of months,
Looked around in archives but didn't find any clear element.
