It looks ok. You seem to have solved the cropping issue from before. I hope you have learned something from all the messing about getting this video right as it is all relevant no matter which system you record.

On youtube in your TAG settings, you can add yt:stretch=16:9 it will aspect correct the gameplay part at the expense of stretching the fmv sections, the lesser of two evils. Viewers are more forgiving of stretched wide rather than extra tall video I think.

In case the question comes up where we don't aspect correct the source for archive, it is because it is important to preserve the Sharpness of the hardware aspect resolution. The viewer is then free to aspect to what ever suits them best while preserving the original resolution.

@MadMatty did you think that i can this be added to longplays.org?

Bizhawk / Lagarith should always render the avi in rgb. The avs script will do the conversion to yuv, but that function should be the last command that is run at the bottom of the avs file.
Mariofan98
ah i must record the AVI in YUY2 right or not?

YUV image can be only cropped by Mod 2 (top) shows me Megui
MadMatty
Well change 1 pixel instead of 2? like 80,39,80,25
Mariofan98
but now is a 2px line at the top

Crop(80,38,-80,-26)
MadMatty
it's all the same ! ;)
Mariofan98
thats Uefa, pls matty
MadMatty
It looks ok, but there is a black line at the bottom of the fifa logo, so I would just double check you have not chopped a line off the top.
Mariofan98
i think (80,40,-80,-24) is the right then the video has a res of 640x512 and Matty means PAL in 512p
is this right: https://youtu.be/-XiohUI58Ic
Black bars dont show up
Spazbo4
you need to crop it to where the black bars dont show up, doesnt matter what resolution it makes it after that
If I can't be the best then I certainly won't be the worst.
Mariofan98
i croped the movie in (74,48,-84,-48) but it has 480p on PAL with the raw file in 800x576
or is it (24,48,-36,-50)?
MadMatty
I cant know, needs gameplay attached to it ;)

It may be best to bring this up in irc chat.

You don't ever need to specify a resolution in bizhawk. That is only for resizing which you don't need to do. Bizhawk will always dump in 1:1 resolution.

As for cropping that is game dependant so I casnt give you any numbers. Just crop to what fits all of the gameplay in without cutting any section of video. Don't crop to bios screen as that is usually offset to the left and also smaller than most PAL games.
Mariofan98
and which avi res must i use in bizhawk and crop settings in the avs for PAL?
MadMatty
I am a little concerned by this question. At no point should you be specifying in the avs a fixed resolution. The emulator will dump the game in the correct 'Hardware' resolution. The most you would need to do is enable 2x pixel doubling for low res games. PlayStation will always come out with borders to account for any overscan or games with mixed resolutions.

The maximum vertical res is usualy 480 with ntsc games and 512 on pal games. Horizontal can be 640 but sometimes larger. If the playstation hires mode is used then you will see 512 horizontal res.

is this so correct:
