Write file FPS low
« on: October 12, 2015, 12:14:39 am »
Iv been trying to record some footage with dxtory as i love the multi audio tracks and im thinking about purchasing it, iv tried every codec, settings etc, you name it, yet the video file fps is still low, the game can be running at 70 fps fine but the write file and when checking the video file myself it can be 40 fps, yet im recording in 60 fps 1080p :S what am i doing wrong?

Maybe, It's the cause that it's slow in the speed of storage.

150 MB for 60 fps 1080p isnt enough for dxtory?

Can you optimise DXTory for average write speeds which is ~120mb/s. I don't have a SSD to record to and neither do most people.

The thing is, Dxtory codec is lossless, the more complex image, the more data it will use to store the image as is (though some colorspace conversion will happen, considering you're using yuv24, it seems).

1920x1080 @ 60fps uncompressed would be ~350MB/s, can't remember of the top of my head how many bits/pixel dxtory yuv24 uses, but even if it uses half of RGB, it would still require 175MB/s. You could try using Lagarith, UTVideo Codec or MagicYUV, those offer same quality as dxtory codecs, but apply a bit better compression.

Dxtory is actually very efficient. The lossless codecs are the reason why you need a high speed disk. If you use a codec that can output lossy (x264vfw), it won't require a very fast speed but result in a poorer quality video. Other software like OBS or Bandicam outputs lossy with slower hard disks.

If you have another spare HDD lying around, you can split your recordings with Rawcap. This lets you split the recording workload over 2 disks rather than 1 disk.

And how do you set up the x264vfw?

Grab your x264vfw codec from http://sourceforge.net/projects/x264vfw/
Install it.

Go to Dxtory, Movie Setting, select the list of codecs and you should find x264vfw 64/32 bit in it. Bear in mind that this codec can do lossless like Lag, UT, MagYUV too, albeit slightly poorer performance.

My config for x264vfw is listed below. Tweak the Ratefactor lower for higher quality if your HDD can take the write speed. I mainly use this configuration if I don't plan to any or minimal video editing.

Of course, I'm not a master in numbers behind recording efficiency vs writing speed. This is just based on my own experience. Any experts can feel free to take a whack with a better suggestion for schyler.

Ok i think i find out the problem, i was testing recording software running the "Valley benchmark" as i wanted to see which software has the biggest impact on system performance. It sucks when using the valley benchmark, other programs are ok but i tried it on metro last lights benchmark and its fine :S

I got a 40 FPS write file and 70-80fps. I have a i7-4790k and the GTX 980 Ti with 24GB of RAM
