so basil, question, which software are you using to record your gameplay (PC that is).

I am currently using OBS which also lifestreams to twitch...


FRAPs 3.5.9. Build - 15586

 

Using Sony Vegas Pro 8 for editing.

FRAPs 3.5.9. Build - 15586

So, if you try making encodes of 720p gameplay (1080p on screen but the video only records 720p) how does FRAPs fare up? Since I am recording at too high quality right now (well I think I am) for my PC to handle it. The problem not being that the recording is unsmooth, but rather that the game start to stutter sometimes. I would like you to make a direct comparison (lol, maybe that is a bit too much asked).

Not exactly sure o.o

The resulting recording usually depends on the settings I use for the game itself and the settings I use for my videos which are:

Video capture settings : 60 FPS at Full Size

Everything else comes out depends on the bit rate and the frame rate settings I use on Sony Vegas.

so you basically let fraps decide?

I am currently going for 24fps @ 720p... I am trying to get a Capture Card so that I can go 30fps @ 1080p or 60fps @ 720p for the recording and still can play smoothly on my laptop

All I am really curious about right now if I can save up computing power by changing the software used for recording (since that capture card is still far away)

For PC gaming I do recommend FRAPs.

"You can choose the frame rate of the output movie from 25fps, 30fps, 50fps, 60fps, or a custom value up to 100fps. Higher values result in smoother playback but will increase the file size. Some video editing programs will treat movies recorded at 25fps as PAL, and those captured at 29.97/30fps as NTSC."

"Choosing Half-size will store the movie at half the resolution of the game screen. Full-size will store the movie at the same resolution as the game screen."

Keep them coming, Banjo brought some good memories.

May I ask what you used to capture the video? I want to do some with DKC games :)

Edit: err nvm, read the above posts :p



e=mc^2

Gaming on: PS4 Pro, Switch, SNES Mini, Wii U, PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060)

I think this thread has dropped of basils buddy anyway ;P

Thanks xD!

No worries!

I've tried out other capture devices but they just have a few issues or conversion issues when I use them with Sony Vegas (i.e. audio missing).

FRAPs is the easiest at least to me and seems to be more user friendly than what I used before: Camtasia.

Anyways been doing some test videos recently alongside my other videos

Kirby's Return to Dreamland (Wii) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEKjhirkflU
Chrono Cross (PSX) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hokNy7KsHv8
Darkstalkers 3 (PSX) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urjngHXQmto

Some PS1 games seems like I might have to increase the brightness like Chrono Cross - so the final video when I do the game will be brighter.
Along with that some other games I'll have to increase the bit rate on rendering like as seen in Darkstalkers 3 - you can see the pixelation if you look carefully ;x.

Aren't you using filtering on past gen games to make them look less pixelated? (not that I care, I love the charm of pixelation)
