Framerate drops with fullscreen apps

Hoping someone else has run into this before and can make a suggestion! I’m having a problem running any touch applications in fullscreen without the CCV framerate dropping massively.

If I’m not running anything else other than CCV I get around 40-50fps, which is great, and that stays the same with small windowed applications (such as the paint example from the flash demos) but when I open something fullscreen (such as the flash ‘fire’ example) the framerate drops to around 8-10fps.

I tried creating a quick test in PyMT to see if that was better, but it’s exactly the same - framerate drops with any fullscreen app!

My setup:
CCV 1.5
Windows 7 64 bit
6 Activated PS3-Eye cameras

I thought I may be running low on CPU/memory with the fullscreen apps but looking at the process manager only a small fraction of each are being used.

Any suggestions appreciated!

I’m working with MT4j and my framerate doesn’t drop down like you say (well, it does XD, but because my program uses a lot processing), but with 6 cameras is very possible, i guess that the problem isn’t memory, is in apply all the filters to all the cameras, you should try a driver that let you put together the cams (like the cl studio of code laboratories) and then give the processed image to the ccv like one, two, maybe 3 cameras and see how they behave
