Re: Question about recording longplays
Well, OK. But can I use another lossless codec? For example, Lagarith or H264 (Lossless profile)? What's your PC specs?

Re: Question about recording longplays
you need to record games in 60fps for longplays unless the game you record is forced in 30fps

Re: Question about recording longplays
OMG... I think, I will record in 1080p 30fps. Anyone tested this codec (H264 High 4:4:4 lossless) for lossless recording? - https://www.bandicam.com/best-codec-for-recording-software/
Can I use it instead YV12?

Re: Question about recording longplays
I've got well over 8TB of SSD storage specifically for recording games, so recording over 1TB of footage is no problem

Re: Question about recording longplays
Well, I have like 6TB of free space on my PC. And you can of course have much much more. Or if you run out of space, you can encode what you have and continue after that.

@martanius - Why would he not use fraps? You can record infinetly long videos, the only limitation would be your disk space.


I mean, it's really big, file size over 1TB, I think.

Re: Question about recording longplays
If you look RE2 longplay page on this site (https://longplays.org/infusions/longplays/longplays.php?cat_id=2&longplay_id=9419), you will notice, that total duration is almost 16 hours. I could be wrong, but I don't think, that Spazbo4 recorded this longplay in one shot.

Besides, there are lot of really loooooongplays on the site. Off course longplayer doesn't play whole game without relaxation.

You can record gameplay partially, then join all parts in VirtualDub, Sony Vegas or MeGUI (using avs script). Loading screens may be used for joining separated parts. The objective is creating video of full (as posible) playthrough as if it was be played in one session, but you shouldn't play the game incessantly.

Re: Question about recording longplays
Sorry for stupid question but how this video was recorded? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqKl1yqnmZg
Duration is 10 hour. I think this is not a Fraps.

Also can you help me what program to use to record ~5-hours longplay? The last time I used Fraps, file size was 100GB (720p 60fps) but what if I want to record more than 1 hour?

Re: Bandicam settings
For recording the best way is Fraps or Dxtory. These programs allow to record gameplay with original quality (Lagarith Lossless codec also needed if your choice is Dxtory).

You can also find more useful information about video encoding in this thread: https://longplays.org/infusions/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=1479&pid=2770#post_2770

I don't recomend to use Bandicam for recording, because this software usually drops frames and your video will not smooth. If you want record gameplay from retro console games you should use an emulator with AVI dumping function like Bizhawk.

Also you can investigate support section deeper, so you may find answers on your questions, I guess.

Re: Bandicam settings
Guys, i'm new here. What settings I should use in Bandicam? (or maybe you can suggest me another program for best quality) Usually I choose xvid (quality 100) codec and render the video in Sony Vegas Pro 12.

Re: Recommended PC capture software
I used YUV420 because it was recommended in the video I watched about DxTory. But 444 looks much better. I'll try it Smile

Re: Recommended PC capture software
I'm testing out bandicam right now, wouldn't we use UtVideo YUV444 BT.709? Isn't it for the chroma subsampling and we should use the highest possible

Re: Recommended PC capture software
So I tried it but it doesn't matter if I save it on HDD or SSD (I tried it with NVMe SSD 4GB/s write speed).

It duplicates frames when I record in lossless. I found out it uses GPU for that and that's probably the reason. It duplicates frames the same way when I record with Shadowplay as well.

But if I record in x264, so it is using CPU for encoding, the video looks much smoother. Maybe it's not even duplicating frames. But of course, it's not in lossless quality.

I did a sample vid with both settings.

Re: Recommended PC capture software
A SATA SSD might not be fast enough on its own tho, I would suggest either an NVMe or doing 2 SSDs in raid 0

Ryzen 7 5800X

But I didn't try to save it on SSD. I'll give it a shot.

Re: Recommended PC capture software
What are your pc specs, it might explain why OBS gives duplicate frames for you when recording lossless if your setup isn't up to spec, like having a fast enough SSD
