Video quality is not the best

Recommended Posts


I've set the settings exactly as specified at http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/kb/1617.html  and yet, the quality of the recording is not the sharpest. I remember configuring the X264 settings in a window as you can see in the linked screenshot below but can't find that option anymore

It's the option "Keep input colorspace" that gave the best quality output. Is that functionality removed?

Have you try this settings?: 

  • Select .wmv as a output format in the Record Screen As: dropdown menu.
  • Click on the Encoder Options.... button
    1. From the Video Compressor: dropdown menu, select Windows Media Video 9 Screen
    2. Leave Video Bitrate (kbits per second): at the default maximum
    3. Click the OK button

If the issue continues, please open a support ticket at: http://www.nch.com.au/support/supportcontact.html?software=Debut&support

I figured it out; turns out that the X264vfw codec needs to be installed separately  and then,   the option shows up as a video compressor for the .avi format, called x264vfw 

With x264vfw as the compressor, under compression settings, the option "keep input colorspace" needs to be enabled for lossless quality outputs
