Capturing Ps3 With Hdmi?

Question

The last time I recorded PS3 I could only do hd component cables. The Green Blue Red White and Yellow cables. But the max that can do is 1080i and that makes the color not as vibrant. Is there a way to record with HDMI on the PS3 yet, somehow? Or maybe a way to make the colors look more vibrant like HDMI does?

Or maybe, would putting it in 720p give it it's vibrant colors back?

You'll have to try 720p. The PS3 adds HDCP to the HDMI signal, so the RGC HD Pro can't capture it. Now, you can capture at 1080p, but the frame rate has to be 30fps, which is the same bit rate as 1080i at 60fps. Not sure if that might make any difference or not.

 

Try the different settings to see if they make any difference for you.

I have tried to put HD component cables at 1080p. It's really weird. They dont support it. But I will surely try 720p. And i saw a video on youtube where a guy had hd components from the ps3 plugged in to the back of the cap and an hdmi plugged in the back too and plugged in to the tv. I'll see if that works also. He had it at 720p for that and it looked great.

You can adjust the Component signal within the RGC software. Look for the 'sunshine' icon in the preview pane.

Your internet guy wasn't right!

 

HDMI input will only allow HDMI output...

 

Component input will allow both HDMI and Component output.

 

Another thing to consider. Users often adjust the Game device output or the video card or even the monitor for picture. The original output source is the one that should be used for adjustment whenever possible. That will adjust for everything downstream of it. I you fiddle with the monitor adjustments they will only be right for that device ;)
