    Change OBS Virtual Camera frame rate (fps)?

    Does anybody know of a way to change the frame rate that the OBS virtual camera generates? I have my general video settings configured for 24 fps but the virtual camera still sends 60 fps. I haven't found any setting that allows me to tweak the Virtual Camera's frame rate directly either.
