Currently running 220.127.116.11840 and have discovered that some behavior when using Smart Seach has changed compared to version 3.x. We upgraded directly from 3.x to 4.2, so am not sure if 4.1 was impacted.
When you activate Smart Search on a camera, it now changes all cameras in all open layouts to Smart Search mode. Under 3.x it only changed the camera you selected - which makes far more sense.
With fisheye cameras, under 3.x, you could have a second instance of the same camera open in the layout in a dewarped view. This way you were able to mark the search area on the non-dewarped Smart Search view, but simultaneously view the playback in a dewarped view next to it. Since in 4.2 it now changes all cameras to SmartSearch, instead of just the selected one(s), this is no longer possible.
Can this behavior be fixed so when you select Smart Search on a camera, it is only activated for the camera you selected?
Tore Myhren I have tagged you in this since you had made a query about Smart Searching fisheye cameras previously, so I thought you might be interested.
