Zoom CPU and new webcam


Will a newer webcam improve zoom's CPU utilization (when I'm using a virtual background)?

@bluegoose – Sorry, probably not, or very little. Regardless of the camera, the CPU has to do a lot of work to figure out what’s you and what’s not you, and sandwich in the virtual background where needed – probably at 30 frames per second. It’s a lot of computing!


In fact, I’m thinking a newer camera might actually make it worse, especially if it has more resolution (more pixels to look at).
