Need tips for best settings for my PC
« on: July 11, 2016, 01:39:15 am »
Recordings with Dxtory behave a lot better with my video editors than Nvidia Shadowplay does and produces higher quality results, but I struggle to get consistant 1440p 60 FPS recordings. Specifically, today I was trying to record "Inside" which isn't a very demanding game, but I couldn't get the recording over 45 FPS until I dropped it to 1080p.

I'm using Lagarith x64 codec with multithreading enabled, outputting to a file, framerate set to 60.

Under advanced options, I have multi GPU Stable enabled (am using two GTX 980's with SLI) and Limit Video FPS 60. I have tried selecting both 8 CPU threads and 16 CPU threads and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Version: 2.0.134

disclaimer: I've had beer. End of disclaimer.

Can't see anything obviously wrong with that setup, except maybe lagarith codec. Lagarith, in my experience, tends to have quite a bit of cpu overhead. As you have quite a fast recording drive, you might want to look into ut video codec (;O=D ) or magicyuv (, get version 1.2, it is pay-what-you-will, pay 0$ to test it ).

IMO, magicyuv is better than utvideo in all cases. In any case, Lagarith can lag a bit on higher resolutions as it compresses quite a bit. magicyuv and utvideo compress less, which leads to bigger files, BUT they cause less performance hit as long as your recording device can handle it. I record pretty much everything with magicyuv solely because of this. I have way more storage space (raid0, 3TB) than cpu power (i7-2600k, @4.2GHz).

edit: as for how much bigger files utvideo/magicyuv produce compared to lagarith varies, highly. If you record oldskool pixel games, the difference is _immense_. If you record more recent games the difference gets smaller (more complex image -> the worse compression gets). I usually get ~50-400GB/h 1080p60 with magicyuv, depending **heavily** on the game.

edit2: some time later I realized it is probably worth mentioning that magicyuv shines with yuv420, Rec709 colors. Reduces bitrate noticeably, very minimal dent on image quality (some yellow colors might suffer in saturation)

Thanks, have experimented following your suggestions and went with Magicyuv, I just need to watch the diskspace!
