  1. Degraded Quality

    Ok so I have a Roxio HD Pro and I use it with my PS4 to record and live stream. I put my HDMI from my PS4, to my Roxio, then HDMI from Roxio, to my monitor. My problem is that the quality is not good compared to just HDMI from PS4 to monitor. I go to my video settings on PS4 and choose 1080p, but next to it it says "1080p(Unsupported)" It says that for every video option. On my PC, I go to the Roxio application and make it 1080p with the bitrate at 15000 and .mp4 format My PC specs are the following : i5 6600k @ 4.4GHZ 16GB DDR4 2800MHZ GTX 770 Samsung 850 PRO 256GB SSD 1TB Seagate HDD If someone could help me out with this issue, it would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Hi I have a huge problem for me with RGC which is the quality of preview is horrible when console is set on 576p, 720p or 1080i. First of all I didn't expected amazing full hd crystal clear quality but what I get is so weird it's like my PS3 cables are really bad but when I try them on tv it looks crystal clear even though those are cheap cables and it looks on tv great in 720p and 1080i. I tried with official software with SP2 and SP1 separately I also tried it with AmaRecTV and it also looks bad. I tried with AVI with Divx and I was playing around with video settings. The wierd part is it looks great in 576i or standard PAL as it says and it's fine but I already have EzCap with S-video at that's why I bought Roxio GameCap because a lot of games aren't properely displayed in standard PAL so it's like squished or they don't work in 16:9 so what I wanted is just excatly same quality as S-video but the console would be running in 720p that's it but it looks so bad I attatched some picture last one is in default settings. I can assure that there is nothing wrong with my PC specs: Intel Core i5 480M 2,67 GHz Nvidia Geforce GT540m 1GB 3 GB of RAM Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 Bit Than I tried reinstalling and installing software but that didn't helped I tried plugging cables from Component video in to component video out but that's didn't helped I know that there is an issue with Audio cables so I unplugged them and ghosting partially dissapeared but it still looks horrible my setup is that I only have it connected on USB and cables are only from console I don't have TV in my room so I want to play them on PC same way as I played on EzCap but I can't because of the quality There is ghosting it looks fuzzy it's just so bad and I don't know what to do because I bought it used there is no warranty and I just have no money to buy expensive component cables just to test if that would help which I doubt here is recording example in Avi https://www.youtube....h?v=wKj69MlUyvc and here is another with DivX https://www.youtube....h?v=QKYMwFZd4PQ I don't know what to expect maybe I'm missing something maybe there are some improved drivers I really don't know but please help me
  3. Creating A High Quality Dvd

    Hi, I'm new to Toast. I'm just trying to create a dvd-video suitable for any dvd player with high quality rendition. I realize that if I choose DVD-Video format in Toast 12 the only possible encoding is MPEG-2. If I would like to use MPEG-4 in order to get a higher quality compression, I have to set the format "High Definition DVD". But this format is made only for Blu-Ray players. is it right? So, my question is: how do i get the best possible quality (considering my needs, to watch my dvd on TV)? Any other software (even iDVD) allows MPEG-4 encoding to create a DVD. I'm really confused.
  4. I have churned through most of this discussion board, without much success. I have seen the issue of “wrong pitch” mentioned briefly in one other post, I can't find that one now. If the moderator sees this post as a dupe, s/he is free to move it or spitcan it as needed. By “wrong pitch,” I mean the frequency of the audio heard—music in the wrong key, children sound like adults, women sound like men, and men sound like Lurch. The audio speed was unchanged, although a second or two out of synch. New install of Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, to a fairly new Win7 PC, 64-bit. My project was to convert home video shot on a Sony Hi8 Handycam to DVD. Software install was no problem, physical connections were a breeze. But the first time I played a video to it, the problem was obvious. This was not an issue with the videotape source—I can monitor the audio with headphones plugged into the camera, and anyway, videotape audio doesn't work like audio tape as far as tape speed goes—also, the video was unaffected. Seems to me the post I saw questioned the throughput of the PC, warned about excessive CPU usage as a possible culprit, but once again I don't think this should affect the audio's frequency. Digital, y'know. But I remembered that when I first connected the USB, it took a moment for Windoze to load the USB drivers. I clicked the balloon that popped up during the install, and saw it was searching Microsoft for the drivers. I remembered thinking it should have used Roxio drivers, but it was finished before I could make a move. But with the audio anomaly, I looked again. I opened the Device Manager (Control Panel → Hardware and Sound → Device Manager [under Devices and Printers]). I clicked the triangle next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to see the list of all the USB installations. I found several entries titled “USB Composite Device,” so I had to search through each one. I right-clicked and chose “Properties,” and clicked the “Details” tab. “Property” had a list of about 25 named attributes, one of which was “Install Date.” I knew when I had done the installation, so after awhile I knew I had the right one. So: Backed out of the Properties box, right-clicked, and chose “Uninstall.” OK, restarted the PC with the Roxio USB unplugged. With the PC powered up, I again plugged in the USB, saw the balloon pop up from the system tray, and “Click[ed] here for status.” This time I clicked the link saying “Skip obtaining driver software from Windows Update.” Once again, it finished too quickly for me to be able to tell where it was getting its drivers, but now the “Driver Software Installation” box identified it as a Roxio device. Success! Now the audio plays perfectly—no delay, good sound quality, boys sound like boys, girls like girls. Hope this helps someone.
  5. When i first used the game capture HD Pro, it worked pretty well and I didn't experience many problems. Now is a completely different story. Half the time it barely works and many times I receive the blue screen, which worries me a lot. This is the quality I am getting right now. It is completely horrible. Also half the time the software crashes or doesn't respond and the edit and share application is the same, it doesn't respond and is a struggle to do anything with. I am honestly fed up with this software and disappointed. it seems to be harmful to my computer and does not work correctly. If anyone has any possible solutions please share. And yes i have uninstalled and re-installed multiple times.
  6. I have recently had a problem exporting videos, it seems like it's only the fairly long ones though. For instance a 12 minute video has no problem, but a 30 minute one will not export using "Same as Original" quality settings. It comes up with the error "Unable to build the render graph." I haven't found a solution to this, so unless someone has one, the question I'd like to ask is, I seem to be able to choose any other quality setting but which one would be the closest to just choosing "same as original"?
  7. So it appears I loose quality from the raw video to putting it into Videowave. I've tried to google and searching around for a solution but I don't see anything. So when I record (Anything, using Video capture for the Xbox, or something I recorded with fraps) I put it into Videowave and I seem to lose some quality. I play the raw video in Windows media player and it's at a decent quality, but when I put it into video wave everything is a little more blurry and hard to make out. Some text is blurry, and you can't see some details. I also put the video(s) into Camtasia Studio 8 and the quality was as good as the raw video, so it seems to be a Videowave problem. Is there anyway to fix this? A setting? Something? If you need an example I can put a couple videos, one raw and one from videowave.
  8. Quality Loss When Burning Xvid To Dvd !

    I have an XVID Movie which I play (through my laptop) on to my LARGE Plasma TV and the picture is great !!! as soon as I burn that xvid to DVD (using Toast 11.2) the quality of the Movie drops by about 30% !!! ALSO: the size of the movie file INCREASES about three-times the size !!! how is this even possible ?? The file size increases three-fold, and the quality drops by about 30% !!! - Please don't tell me about xvid being a low quality codec because I already have said that I play the movie from my computer onto my LARGE SCREEN PLASMA TV.. and the quality is just fine. but its a hassle to bring my laptop to the TV every time. the quality drops from Toasts bad quality conversion process, I guess. I want to know how I can improve the quality of Toast DVD burning. or, is there better software out there ? Thanks

    I recorded a gameplay using the roxio hd pro, and on the preview screen its always laggy and there are screen tears and coloured lines running through the video. when i go to edit it, it lags and glitches a lot, i thought it was just the laptop running slow, so i uploaded it to youtube anyway...the quality is 360p...yet i want it in hd and cant get it any higher that 480p which looks terrible, the glitches look terrible and i dont know how to fix it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lb_NGqq5df0 Take a look at the video and if you guys can help me, id really appreciate that, its hard enough starting a gaming channel as it is...i could really do without the terrible quality Thanks.
  10. I'm experiencing some problems. A few months ago I posted some video's to test my video quality of my Roxio game Capture HD Pro to make it work in 1080i. It worked and I was excited to post allot more video's on Youtube. Then I put the capture card away since I didn't have time for it. Then today I reopened it because I wanted to make sure if I still remember how it works and everything. I captured in 1080i on 15000 Kbps. When I was done editing it I exported it in a wma file. When I logged into my youtube account and pressed upload the video couldn't be uploaded because it failed to process due to the fact the video wasn't in the right format. It was in Dmsm which the default file. I don't know why it didn't work I tried many things to make it work. The settings were exactly the same I had from a few months ago when it uploaded onto youtube with no problem. I tried to change the settings and the format I was exporting it. I tried different browsers like internet explorer, chrome, firefox, to see if it would work on them and I also tried uploading the video's to different accounts. Then I uninstalled and installed my Roxio game capture card hd pro program again and it STILL DIDN'T WORK!!!!. I give up if this is the type of problems i'm having after spending 120 dollars on this thing then it is a complete waste of money and I want my money back. Please help.
  11. When I post my gameplay to YouTube there is a green line at the bottom of my screen and ive tried everything I know of to get rid of it. it doesn't show up in Roxio GC program, just when I post it on YouTube. any help is appreciated.
  12. Video Quality Reduced In Toast?

    I just got Toast a few days ago, and the first thing I'm doing is burning dvds of .mov files I've transferred to my computer from old VHS tapes and Hi8 tapes. As I'm looking over the footage to edit/ add chapters and such in Toast, I'm noticing that the quality of the video is reduced (and remains this way when burn to a dvd). There are horizontal lines that appear (apparently in conjunction with movement) and create a distorted look to the footage. Here are two examples: I'm concerned because this seems to be consistent with all the footage I've imported (all this VHS/Hi8 footage was imported through a program called Ezcap, using an RCA to USB cable). Also I wanted to note that I don't have these issues when playing back the footage on their original machines (VHS/videocamera), in any programs (such as QuickTime) or anywhere else (one or two clips have been uploaded to YouTube and don't display these imperfections) Can anyone please help me identify what the cause of these imperfections may be, and what I can do to get rid of them when I burn to dvd?
  13. When I first got my roxio game capture hd pro everything was working fine. Perfect quality, and preformed just as expected, but, just recently when capturing on the preview screen there are these weird fuzzy lines that appear from time to time. I have no idea what is causing this as it has just recently started happening. I would assume that my laptop can handle the graphics as it was working exceptionally before. With my laptop having an intel core 2Duo P8600 running at 2.4GHz, Vista 32bit SP2, 8gb of ram, plenty of hard drive space, and a mobile Intel 4series express chipset graphics card, I have no idea what caused these abnormalities to appear. I would appreciate any help at all whatsoever as the tech support is what I perceive to be nonexistent. Thanks, confused helpless customer
  14. Why Cant I Record In 720 Or 1080P

    When i go into the capturing portion of the roxio game capture hd pro i always get a warning saying "480p is not supported". On top of that, when i go into options in the capturing portion of the game capture hd pro, and try to change the quality, it only displays the quality 480i. How do i increase the video to 720 or 1080p with this problem?
  15. Recently I tried recording again with my Roxio Game Capture. I hadn't done so in a while due to personal reasons and I wanted to make some more content for my youtube channel. Unfortunately this I what I was greeted with when I turned it on: http://gyazo.com/36b4f19f0448de49b76364871d1d64b0 It never used to do this and I don't know why it is now. When I hit start capture it still records but the recordings will be just as flickery as the preview screen and will also play at several times normal speed. Any suggestions?
  16. Tv Display Problems

    The game capture device works great doing everything i expected it to, except for one thing. It severely diminishes the quality of the game play on my actual television, not the recording. All the recordings i've done so far look and sound great, but my television display has become filled with lines of static running across my television. Now it's not so bad that i can't use it, but i think my gameplay would improve if i could see my television clearly while i'm recording. Advise/help??
  17. I'm using Toast 10 right now, and I have to reduce the quality of Youtube videos to 240p in order to download them. Nothing downloads in a higher quality. Can someone tell me if I'll be able to download higher quality versions if I upgrade to Toast 11 titanium? I'm also considering purchasing the Bluray plug-in. Would that help at all? I noticed a knowledgbase article that said the workaround to downloading Youtube videos in Toast 11 is to reduce the quality. That's not acceptable. Any other suggestions or ideas appreciated! Many thanks! tina
  18. Really Bad Quality When Capturing

    Hi there! A couple of days ago I bought a Roxio Game Capture HD PRO and after connecting it with 1080p HDMI cables to my computer and capturing, I always get a really poor quality capture, and sometimes getting the picture really bad for a sec as seen in the photo. Ohh and also I edit with Final Cut Pro X after transferring the video to my Mac (but the bad quality was apparent before transfer). I would really appreciate some help with getting the quality of the capture as it should be. Here are my laptop specs, roxio settings, and screenshots of capture...
  19. Hardware Vs. Software Rendering

    What exactly does this do? Logically, the rendering is done via software running on the hardware, so what does this setting do? I would assume hardware would be the option you want if you have an amazing GPU, but doesn't the rendering get done on it anyways since the software (presumbly) uses the GPU? Or does it normally use the CPU, and the hardware setting uses the GPU? Are there any bugs or other info I should know relating to this?
  20. Bitrate For Maximum Quality.

    I'll admit, I don't understand bitrate as a concept that well. In my head, if you have to display 1000 frames of video at 30 frames per second, then you should be loading whatever data is needed per frame with enough time to spare for a smooth transition. Any faster is uneeded, any lower is deterimental. And it should be deterimined not by a file, but by the processing power of the device playing it. That's the end result when it comes to FPS anyways, right? Anyways, what bitrate is good for the max quality possible, for both/either 720p, 1080i and p? Would any other settings change the answer? Thanks!
  21. No Divx Hd In Export As Video

    Hi all, Sorry if this is a really stupid and simple question but i have no option to export my video as a Divx HD, as it seems to be one of the most popular ones. The options that i do have are AVC, AVCHD, bluray, windows media and some other odd ones. If you could inform me as to whether i need to download something extra, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks
  22. I have recently purchased the HD pro after using the standard for many years however I have found that directly uploading a 1080p video from videowave to youtube downgrades it to 480p maximum available on youtube. If however I save the file first then manually upload it, it is fine in full glorious 1080p HD. Why can't videowave upload it in the correct quality? This is appaulling for bundled software to reduce the quality. Please help, and advise what i am doing wrong or fix the issue. Win7 64bit, 30fps production setting, video captured 1080p, only modification in videowave is a colour panel at the start for the titles.. .
  23. Please help I have tried configuring all options and my recording is always fuzzy or scratchy looking! (picture of what it looks like below)
  24. I am slightly confused by the difference between Standard Play and Hig Quality. I know that HQ is 720x480 @9mbs and SP is 352x480 @6mbs, but what I don't understand is why why I add a movie to a project it takes more space when set to SP than to HQ ? Doesn't seem to make sense, I would have expected HQ to take much more space. I am more than glad to create more DVDs, as long as I get better quality. What am I missing here ? Thanks Jack
