Hello all,

Recently I installed OBS (tried many other types of recording software, OBS seems the most optimizable), and no matter what, I cannot get the recorded file to ever look like what I see in game, always too blurry, choppy, laggy, etc. I've played around a bit with the different encoding types, resolutions, recording formats, bitrates, rate control, and preset, all to no avail. Is anyone able to help diagnose what I could be doing or what could be fixed? I can attach a video illustrating my point.

Fyi It may be a bit blurry cause its not new Nvec from nvidia (the 2000 series and 1660) and its not on pair with CPU encoding.
But try lossless quality.
Also in video options re scale it back to your original resolution.

When I tried using "Lossless", the preset is highlighted in red and no matter the format, the video only ends up with black screen, and the video is scaled to my native resolution

Have you captured display or the game?
Cause you may have to do both.
I previously had display capture only (which proved to be worse framerate wise), then game capture only, and that is where I am at now, the game/display capture had made no difference when recording as it currently is
