Getting major stuttering in recorded videos
« on: November 10, 2013, 12:19:43 am »
I've tried several different options to solve this problem. No matter what I do the recorded video is always stuttering. When I'm in-game the FPS counter never drops below 30. I'm recording to two Samsung Spinpoint F3's, so I know it's not my hard drives. Not to mention on my old rig I had no troubles at all recording at 1080@30fps. The only thing I can think of is that it might be the fact that I'm using 3 graphics cards.

Force Down Sampling
Disable Delay Processing

You should combine these options.

Please use "Enabled Synchronous Surface Lock".

Try the combination of all the options.

There is certainly combination for which it was suitable.

It was already on. Thank you for your quick replies, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. Are you suggesting that I try different combinations of the options you've suggested so far?

I have disabled crossfire and the problem still persists. I have also tried various combinations of the options you have told me to turn on(including all of them on at once), and the stuttering is still there.

I have now tried 4 different codecs and all of them have major stuttering in the recorded video.

After analyzing the videos frame by frame in VirtualDub it looks like every two to three frames it shows one frame from three to four frames back.

does that happen with all codecs? I spy with my little eye that you are using lagarith, maybe try with ut codec? (http://umezawa.dyndns.info/archive/utvideo/?C=M;O=D), UT video codec tends to have less performance impact but makes somewhat bigger files.

edit: ...okay the codec isn't the probable cause, even with worst stutters I've had with some cases with lagarith isn't anywhere nearly as bad as the youtube-video you linked.

When I tried x264vfw the stuttering was still there. I set the size to 1920 by 1080, and the problem is slightly reduced now(I'm using two monitors). It's still completely unwatchable, though. The really strange thing is, when I go to the test range in battlefield 4 there's almost no stuttering in the recorded video.

I investigated.
There is no method of operating normally on multi-GPU of a Radeon system.

*Mostly* true.  I did a little more testing.

In fact, you can have a multi-gpu Radeon setup, you just can't have more than one enabled in the device manager when you want Dxtory to record properly.  Disabling all but the primary allows Dxtory to record videos fine, without stutter.  And you don't have to physically remove cards from the system.

It is however, unfortunate that Dxtory has this problem with multi-GPU setups (Radeons at least).  Hardware setups like that are becoming much more common.  I've used either SLI or Crossfire continuously, for at least five years.
