Post your suggestions thread

Thu Jan 31, 2013 6:22 pm

Hi there, as the title says, i'd like to reserve this thread for Bandicam suggestions, i haven't found one of these and this way Bandisoft can easily see what people would really like to be added.
So, suggest away.

My suggestions;

- Support for a compressed Quicktime codec recording format

- Support for a Quicktime codec container
Update; MP4 Container has been implemented

- Support for more compressed codecs in general

- Support for multiple monitor recording (widescreen 2x2560 width and 1600 height), this is already possible with rectangle on a screen, but the only problem with that, is that it cuts of the top bar, because the rectantgle's height is automatically back downscaled so the rectangle bar isn't of the screen

- Support for Picture in Picture (PIP), allowing the user to select a monitor (or different window/application) that will be overlayed on the main recording (smaller in a corner)

- An option to allow Bandicam to prompt the user to create a project folder when you start a recording, thus all files would be in this project folder (video file/ audio file(s)), instead of having a bunch of recordings all under 1 folder per game

- An option which makes bandicam always record the latest 40 seconds (or a different user specified time frame), thus preventing you from missing that amazing shot

Would love to see these come true, especially the codec ones

Kind regards,

Cipher

Hi Cipher,

Thank you very much for your suggestions.
We will try to answer the questions you asked.

- Support for a compressed Quicktime codec recording format
- Support for a Quicktime codec container
- Support for more compressed codecs in general

We consider adding .mp4 codec/container.

- Support for multiple monitor recording (widescreen 2x2560 width and 1600 height), this is already possible with rectangle on a screen, but the only problem with that, is that it cuts of the top bar, because the rectantgle's height is automatically back downscaled so the rectangle bar isn't of the screen

We've added your idea in our to do list.

- Support for Picture in Picture (PIP), allowing the user to select a monitor (or different window/application) that will be overlayed on the main recording (smaller in a corner)

We consider adding PIP or VIV (Video in Video).

- An option to allow Bandicam to prompt the user to create a project folder when you start a recording, thus all files would be in this project folder (video file/ audio file(s)), instead of having a bunch of recordings all under 1 folder per game

This function might be difficult to a normal Bandicam user. We will consider it in the future.

- An option which makes bandicam always record the latest 40 seconds (or a different user specified time frame), thus preventing you from missing that amazing shot

This function will be useful. We will support it in the future.

Hello!

Please try the the webcam PiP function (Picture-in-Picture, Video-in-Video) of Bandicam.

The webcam stream is recorded and merged within the main video as shown below:

Sorry for the late reply, didn't know you actually came back to this thread, thanks for that, and nice to see this got implemented!! (Although it would be even better if you could also save it to a separate file :P) (And seperate screens as well, instead of only the webcam ;) )

I actually have a new suggestion which i'm surprised is not in here, which is very simply put, the naming convention, to me it's rather inconvenient to have a super long date + time stamp as the name identifier, i would love to have the option to simply specify a naming convention (drop down that gives you the options between timestamp, number, letter,...) A prefix/suffix option would be nice as well

Kind Regards,

Cipher

ps the new UI is great compared to the old one!! ^^

The major feature I would like to see is a persistent recording of a set time, say it records the last 10-15minutes or more of whatever your doing and keeps it in a file buffer, once your hit F12 or whatever to record it dumps that past 15minutes into a AVI file and resets the timer and continues to record from that point onward.

Much like how Nvidia's shadowplay works, very handy. If I leave this application to record automatically all the time it will eat a planets worth of TB space. Its a ease of use type of feature and very easy to implement!

Mantle recording, I use Motion JPEG to record on my Asus Swift at 1440p at 60fps on my R9 290x crossfire setup.

Mantle recording is going to be awesome as you have more control over the performance as it's designed for today's powerful hardware and not old hardware like DX11.

So far on Raptr the hit on performance is the smallest i've felt but it's just been added and there isn't much support or much in optimisation, looking forward to the next update.

Speaking to Bandisoft on Facebook they seem interested in Mantle support as it's a awesome API.

The SDK can be found at the following address and you need to apply for early access to the SDK before it goes public as AMD has said it will be in the future. Mantle has been a huge success even with BF4 (Dice's bad patches) but the driver API has been strong in all games!

http://developer.amd.com/mantle/

Below is a sample I made using Bandicam on DX11 at 1440p 60fps recorded with Premier preset Motion JPEG. Youtube compresses 1440p videos to 9.2Mbps so I suggest uploading to that. looking forward to be able to do this on Mantle :D

Mantle/Raptr doesn't work for me, fails. I just found out recently that DX11 encoding doesn't work on my PC but DX9 does.

Bandicam now supports naming conventions.

<3 Bandicam

Would like to see the default "Sample.png" logo replaced with something more useful, like a cool "Bandicam.png" so i could add that to my video to show my proud support for such an awesome piece of software.

Would really appreciate if Rectangle on a Screen coordinates were sticky so it would default to the last settings used in this mode. I would not have to resize and relocate between Runs :)

SAVE VIDEO IN ORIGINAL CODEC & FORMAT

I want to capture audio & video from a webcam with Bandicam. Its nice you recently added "Save as original format" for PCM Audio. Am I right, this option muxes original audio in PCM format into avi output file without re-encoding?

But... why there is no such option for Video? My webcam can output in MJPEG&PCM, and the best way to capture such stream is simply mux original video and audio streams into avi container without re-encoding, just like FFMpeg or VirtualDub does. Does Bandicam have to decode the video, and than encode it again into the same MJPEG before muxing with audio into avi? Its wasting PC resources and degrading output quality without any reason.

The same is true for modern popular webcams that output in H264xAAC encoded in webcam hardware. Why would Bandicam need to decode the streams, and than encode them again into the same formats, and mux into MP4 container? Doesn't make sense either... only heavily wastes resources, especially on PCs with older GPU, which don't support H264 encoding in GPU chip.

Pls add "save video in original codec & format" to Video Settings. You'd need to add a Help page explaining what codec combos are supported by each container type.

I've seen that the thread is being reviewed frequently by devs, so I'll post my suggestion here instead of making a new thread

Image Output folder
- This is the ONLY feature that kept me from switching over to Bandicam, Fraps has a separate Image and Video folders so I can easily work on both images and videos without overloading the Output folder. Please give us the option to choose Image Output folder - people who like to keep images and videos in the same place could easily point the Image Output folder to the same with Videos Output folder.

...Please give us the option to choose Image Output folder


Or, in my case, "Snapshot" folder. It is very inconvenient having snaps mixed in with the videos, especially as Bandicam titles them both in the same format - I have to look down the Size column to distinguish the snapshots, and I have to work fast under pressure, it's a headache.

=================

Embed text (eg, copyright or other info) and date/timeline

(If possible, with the feature to add different a time zone from the computer's.) I've asked about this before. Currently I have to use a separate program and include it within the Bandicam 'frame'.

This is Bandicam with a third-party program supplying the timeline.

===================

I've forgotten what else I came here to ask for now :oops:

Hi,

We are pleased to inform you that the output subfolder option is now available so that you can save captured videos and images in the different subfolders.
Please install Bandicam 3.3.1 from https://www.bandicam.com/downloads/ and check the function.

Thank you.

I realize that there IS a way to name your videos (as well as sequence them automatically, which I will say is a very nice touch), but there are one too many steps to take to get there, thus since it is not easily accessible, I don't bother with it, resulting in 85 videos with the same title and a different number, all of them having nothing to do with the other.

In general, I would suggest making the renaming feature easier to access.
More specifically, I would put it under the general tab either right above or right below the save directory path.

Also, I know this has been brought up in the past, but I would love to see a live streaming feature. If you were to include that, I would uninstall OBS in a heartbeat.
