So Ive been having troubles getting really good quality videos when exported with Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus Ive tried 4K and HD in the past they are game recordings and I'm just looking for the best settings that I could use to get the best quality the photos below are the recording settings for OBS Studio (free recording software)
use media info to check your original screen capture file check the bitrate and use the same bitrate in the exported file also you use 60 frames per second that good but i notice 2500 kbs is quite low normaly 6000 kbps and 8000 is more normal.
Thanks for that I think Im pretty sure I figured it out now I changed the bit rate from 2500 to 8000 ended up being a total of 14964 in the video file properties for some reason but the quality was a bit better and passable mind you the game I play doesn't have the best video quality either anyways thanks again :)
There are several issues here starting with the recording settings for OBS ie:
HEVC is not the best codec to capture in - it is a highly compressed video format.
Bitrate setting of 2500 Kbps is too low for good quality with HEVC - you should be looking at 6000+ Kbps.
Audio samplerate while acceptable at 44.1 Khz, is better if you use 48Khz
Output resolution is too low - this is slightly better than 720p (HD) .
Upscaling of lower resolution video to Full HD (1920x1080) or 4K does not gain any quality and the exported video may show artefacts/blockiness and be more blurred.
There is no mention of the framerate type and value - if the captured video is variable frame rate then you must change this to Constant and the fps should match your monitor frame rate.
Personally I do not like using OBS for screen capture, I found it puts too much load on the PC and IMHO is not the best for quality I use ScreenCast-o-Matic (paid for version) and if you look at any of my tutorials in the Tutorials section of the forum you will see the quality I get.
When exporting from MEP there is no need to change the settings in the presets - these are optimised for best quality vs file size.
The latest version of OBS collaborated with Nvidia. If you use a later model Nvidia GPU and the recommended Nvidia NVENC settings (e.g., Max Quality, Look-ahead), the results can be quite good with low CPU usage. (In fact, I get better results with OBS's new NVENC H.264 than with Nvidia's H.265.)
I'm using a GTX-1650 Super, which uses the Turin Hardware encoder. I record screen at 1080p, 30 fps, and use about 15% CPU and about 35% GPU. That's with a lowish BW settings, which implies I am making the encoder work harder to compress more.
