    Sudden Encoding Overload

    Today I stumbled upon a very interesting message during my stream: encoding overloaded. The thing is, I have been using the same settings for months now, and havent had a single encoding issue until today.

    frames dropped due to rendering lag but GPU usage is low

    I'm running a very simple scene on my slow slow macbook. The scene is basically a video play back and a camera capture placed left and right. I didn't use streaming nor recording since the scene is to be projected via HDMI. The problem is that frame dropped due to rendering lag is very high. (...

    Rendering Lag only when tabbing
