Video Render Quality Help


May 25, 2012
I'm looking for a little bit of advice when it comes to recording/rendering gameplay.

I play Battlefield 3 in 1080p on Medium. I record with Dxtory in 720p @ 30fps(limited) and play at 50-70fps in Largith Lossless Codec. I know right there that scaling it down will loose some quality but the recordings still come out pretty decent. The clips come out in correct size looking decent like I said and @ 884,74 Mbps(File says its 884,736kbps. did my best to convert it, might be off).

After I render a clip out in Sony Movie Studio 11 it seems like it takes a huge drop in quality. My settings for rendering are 720p HDV Internet @ 29.970fps, Progressive Scan, No Deinterlace, Disable Resample @ 8Mbps.

My question is, is there anything you can suggest possibly in the way of rendering to increase quality? Is there a big drop in the mbps or whatever that could be causing it? Should I try increasing that? I will take any suggestions.
