My sensor view looks choppy, and I am having errors when scanning. How do I fix this sensor issue?

Some sensor errors are related to the sensor's frame rate. Turning off a performance setting can help the sensor capture at the correct frame rate.

If you are receiving issues when scanning, for example if the software stops the scan early or if it consistently says there was an issue seeing the subject on the turntable, the issue could be related to the sensor's frame rate. Follow the steps below to improve the sensor frame rate.

Step 1 : Press Settings to open the Settings menu.
