This information only applies to Android* workloads.

To access this window: click the Add button in the Open Frame Capture window.

Use this window to capture new frame files on your Android* device.

Connected systems

The list of devices connected to Graphics Frame Analyzer. The currently selected device is highlighted with dark-blue. To capture frames on a different device, click its name in this list.  

If the Graphics Frame Analyzer cannot detect any devices, the corresponding message prompts you to connect the target device.

Application list

Select an application you want to debug. The selected application is marked with a blue highlight.


You can only capture frames for applications that appear in the Analyzable applications list. To analyze an application from the Non-analyzable applications list, you need to modify the application permissions first. See Preparing OpenGL ES* Applications for Profiling for details.

Captured frames

View all frames captured within the current Graphics Frame Analyzer session. The last captured frame appears in the preview pane on the left.
