Maximum recording time
The free version of Honeycam can record a video for less than 10 seconds, and the Pro edition can record up to 1 hour. Because Honeycam temporarily stores the recorded video in memory during the recording process, however, the maximum recording length may be limited depending on your PC’s memory and free disk space.
For example, when you record a video with a resolution of 640×480, 4 bytes of memory is used per pixel and 1.17 MB is used per frame. (640×480×4 = 1228800 bytes = 1.17 MB) Therefore, when you record the video at 30 FPS, 35.15 MB of memory is required per second.
And when you record 320×240 video at 15 FPS, 4.39 MB is required per second. (320×240×4×15 = 4.39 MB)
The sample below was recorded with a resolution of 800×600 for 1 minute; 1476 frames were captured and the memory usage was 2.63 GB. (The size of the result GIF file is 32 MB.)
In case the available memory is insufficient, Honeycam will use the Disk Swap technology to save the image from memory to free disk space. So the recording time can be extended up to 1 hour if the disk space is enough.
However, the recording FPS could go down when using the Disk Swap technology.
Please make sure that NO sound is recorded while recording a video using Honeycam.
