Just A Few Questions.

Question

Hey everybody I'm new to the forum and I have a few questions about roxio game capture. I'm sure that some of these have already been asked so you'll have to forgive a rookie but here I go.

 

1. What are the best settings to capture game footage? Mainly the T.V. standard, what is it supposed to be. Also are AVI files supposed to be such a large size. I captured a 10 minute video that was over 2 GB in size.

 

2. Can an old HDMI cord affect the quality of captured videos? I mean this cord is old, like before 2007. I bought a new Xbox 360 but kept the old cable, should I just get a new one?

 

 

 

Thats all I can think of for now. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi oshaun,

 

1 - will depend on the program used. I use Virtualdub to get the best quality possible. AVi is a container only, its depend the CODEC used. Try UT VIDEO CODEC for nice quality. Bigger files ever.

 

2 - We have a problem here. Because RGC does not use HDMI, so there no relevant question. But if you have talking about Component Cable maybe affect.

Thanks for the reply Cauptain.

 

So what your saying is I should use another program to get the best possible quality. And if I understand you properly while my old cable might not greatly affect the quality of my videos it probably wouldn't hurt to get a new one, right?

 

One last question, what are some general factors that can affect how a video is captured?

 

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the help.

 

1 - Yes. In other software capture, you have a full configuration driver (brightness, sharpness, color balance ...). Can setup better codecs like UT VIDEO or HUFFYUV.

 

2 - Maybe...Maybe. You can get a "friend cable' and test. My Ps3 use the PS2 component (6 years ago). Very good quality.

 

3 - low processor, IDE HD, system resources, antivirus, most backgrounds services and last, the record software.
