Every time I try to record battlefront with bandicam - mpeg1 CBR it spikes the fps really hard for about 20 seconds and its really anoyying. That is the only codec that I can use, and vbr is not an option for me. Help? Thanks!
Yes. I sort of fixed it by switching bandicam's priority to low, but now i noticed another really annoying problem which is really choppy video. I record on VBR mode(meaning that it's not CFR), CBR And 60FPS. I have a really good computer(OC 980ti) and i usually get around 170FPS in game.
It might not seem so obvious in youtube, but when i view it in a video player such as VLC or Media Player, or even Premiere, it looks very choppy and bad. Also, bandicam is always telling me the FPS that the media player is playing in, and it's almost always on 60fps, even when the footage itself is choppy, suggesting it's not the player's fault.
As i said in the email, if there was a way to convert the value of CBR to VBR, i would use Motion JPEG, but right now i can't really figure a similar value to what i had on MPEG. Are you sure there's no way to fix the problem with MPEG?
So i'm pretty sure that i figured it out. The method i'm using is with x264vfw, and a few commands. Here's a picture of what the x264vfw configuration screen looks like: http://i.imgur.com/yknmWDH.png I've set the rate control to Multipass - nth, so that file sizes would stay the same, and so far the file sizes are about 60% of the file time, and the quality is really good. There are no problems with editing as long as you put in the extra command line "--keyint 1" and "--pass 0".
