trdrop - a raw video analysis program
- Please create an issue if you encounter problems and search the closed issues for already solved ones.
See the release page for the Windows installer. Other distributions are on the roadmap (Linux, MacOS).
The main use of this software is to estimate the "real" framerate of an uncompressed video.
Usually, a dedicated capture card is employed to capture the video stream with a fixed framerate of a console. To estimate the real framerate of the console, we check for differences on a frame-by-frame basis and count the different frames. This results in the "real" framerate.
The same is done with the frametime, as we count the amount of time a single frame is shown.
We also try to detect frametears and incorporate them into the framerate and frametime calculation.
Hence the name tr (short for tear) and a framerate drop.
See the DEVELOPMENT_HISTORY.md for gifs I made while developing the application.
We will provide a detailed explanation and showcase in the future.
trdrop is a free, open-source project we develop in our spare time. While we do our best to make it as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee that it is free of errors.
We do not take responsibility for analysis errors or inaccuracies that might damage or improve the reputation of any brand or organization. trdrop is not an accurate scientific tool, but merely a demonstration of different algorithms.
