    Basically, I'm capturing from a HD PVR2 Gaming edition using Hauppage capture and it's absolutely perfect quality, 1920x1080P 60fps capturing and it looks beautiful! But i have to put voiceover for games in afterwards because I don't have a PC mic yet :P

    So basically i cut crap i don't need out and shove the voiceover in as an audio track on Sony Vegas Pro 10 and everything works, no complaints there, the only thing is that it like halves the quality of my video :S I made a quick test of DK country tropical freeze and changed the project properties to a few different things 1080I with No field order (progressive scan) 1080I with Upper Fields first and de-interlace by blending fields, same again but interpolate fields, and then changing the 'render as' to a few different things like Constant bit rate and Variable Bit rate...

    no matter what It's not as smooth, or as high quality as the original and the file size of the original is 48MB and every other is only 20.4-20.7MB. There isn't an option in project properties for 1080p so i'm forced to choose 1080i, but then i don't know what the rest of the properties should be if my source media is 1920x1080p!






    NOTE: Just right clicked my Source media properties, It says Double NTSC 59.94fps, is that where i'm going wrong? Everything i've done is under NTSC 29.97fps :P

    besides that, if i do render as 60fps will youtube render it down to 30fps again anyways? hahaha Thanks to anyone that can help :)

    From my experience videos never look as smooth as they look before rendering them.. I have the same problem but i never resolved it.
    I do remember youtube rendering down my quality but not the fps, i may be wrong, hadnt upload anything on youtube for a while.

    I think the 59.94fps thing has sorted out the quality at least on the digital playback :) I'm just trying to render it as the original 1920x1080 now and i'll see if the quality is up to scratch, it was definitely alot better on double NTSC with size at 1440x1080 :)

    yeah more fps means it will run more smoothly. Render different resolutions see which one works best... The original resolution works best for my videos, when change the resolution (if i do) is for one smaller to make it look better.

    Yeah i've found that too now, I'm going to try capturing 1920x1080 at 30fps and then when rendering try 1440x1080 at 30fps and see what happens, had success with the double NTSC but 30 is HD too so why not make it half hahaha

    Hauppauge capture apparently doesn't let you capture at 30FPS even though theres an option to XD Sorry if this is a double post, haven't refreshed the screen yet!

    Capture at 1080p or 720p. Render at 30 fps at as close a resolution to your source as possible. I don't know what your render template is but MainConcept with a bitrate of at least 5mbps should give something decent. If not you should up the bitrate especially if there is a lot of motion or color detail.

    Nope. Hell, I don't even know any Vegas amateurs.
