No useful information in your post.

 

Exactly what are you trying to capture? Game playing on your PC or on external game device? What capture device do your have? That is only for a start!

Yes there is such a thing as painting with too big a brush :lol:

 

Your laptop specs look great! Just a matter of getting the rest of the story ;)

My apologizes. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

I want to know how do I capture PC game play, such as gaming.

I want to have the program running and capturing on one screen and want to record the other.

Is it possible? If so, what are the configurations too it?

I have a Roxio HD Pro capture card.

Yes, it gets tricky but your specs look promising -_-

 

You will need to Output from your Lap to the RGC with HDMI or Component (not likely)

 

Then have the RGC connected to your Lap via USB.

 

Run the RGC sofware on one screen (or the same screen behind the game and use the Hot Keys to start and stop recording)

 

Run the game and start the capture.

 

Let us know how that works out for you ;)

Kind of confusing me a bit.

I'm running this all on 1 pc with 2 monitors, no laptop involved.

How does the setup go?

Motherboard to input of RGC or GPU?

I only have Display adapters open.

Laptop - PC... same thing. Hopefully one of your monitors supports HDMI in? Or if not, hopefully you can output your gameplay on and HDMI output and on one of your monitor outputs. Connect a USB cable between your PC and the RGC HD Pro.

 

If you have a monitor with an HDMI input, then you would connect an HDMI cable from your PC to the input of the RGC HD Pro, and then another HDMI cable from the output of the RGC HD Pro to your monitor.

 

Then set things up so that you have the capture software on the screen not connected to the RGC HD Pro, and your game on the screen connected through the RGC HD Pro.

 

Does that help?

Thank you, this helped. But I still have a ton more problems.

So I plugged it in, started RGC Program and it shows everything. there is just a couple of problems.

1. I encounter a 3 second lag between real gameplay and the one that is being captured.

2. Not hearing any audio.

3. Really low resolution, it is hard to read.

How do I fix these?

1. The lag is normal. That's the time it takes for the Capture device to encode the signal and send it to the PC. You can NOT play your game using the preview window, unless you can see the future and anticipate what's happening by the delay time. :P

 

2. When you normally play, do you have sound on your monitor/TV? Or are you playing using headphones? If you're using headphones, there's a good chance you're not sending audio out on the HDMI cable. The RGC device can only capture/record what it receives. If you're not sending it audio, it won't record it. You'll have to dig through your audio mixer settings and make sure you're sending audio out the HDMI cable.

 

3. The preview window is low resolution so it uses less processor time. Don't worry about the preview window so much as the final captured video. How does that look when you play it back?

It doesn't look too bad, but whenever I play a game the low res bugs me.

And I use headphones. How do I set it to receive audio?

For your audio, I don't know. A quick google search indicates it may not be possible on the PC. (Follow this link.) Another solution may be here. They seem to indicate you may need a second sound card. If that's the case, I would suspect even a simple USB audio output device may suffice, maybe something like this.

 

The low res on the preview screen can't be changed, but again, it's the final recorded video that's important.
