Gameplay with webcam, advice


Recommended Posts

hello guys, I would like to record some videos with the webcam to show me while I play the guitar, as I program camtasia and sony vegas, camtasia for the moment it seems that it is easier to use, but I wanted some advice on how to set up the program settings, because when you register with the webcam video suffers a drop in framerate stutters .... you have any advice for me to get a good framerate?

I'm actually using camtasia 8. To avoid framerate stuttering, i usually play rocksmith on window mode (not fullscreen) and with camtasia i select a custom size in order to fit the window mode (you'll have a full screen video at the end of recording). In tools options (camtasia), lower the quality of the video, to compress it (set the quality in the mid or lower, is still a good quality).

what kind of compression you are using in the video settings of camtasia?

In tools option, you can set video quality. By default is set on high quality, but i set it in the mid or lower.

Ok, but I wanted to know the type of video compression setup that uses, in a nutshell, the codec

I give up because I know that it takes a good PC to record decently and without lag, I have a laptop with a dual core processor 2.00 ghz and I think that is not enough ....

Maybe is due to the ram? I also have a dual core but with 8GB ram. Well, eventually, if you have a camera recording, you can capture rockmith gameplay with a software and at  the same time (so you have to synchronize during the editing, merging both video) yourself playing so this will not affect framerate. This could sounds a little bit complex but an alternative solution.

4gb of ram ...Yes, the best solution would be to record the gameplay first and then with the camera and after editing it all, however, is much more complicated and takes more time especially

Sure, but   you need to  press at the same time the recording button on camera (with remote controller or manually)  and on pc (is not so impossible). :mrgreen:

I had already tried to do it this way and it is not difficult to start recording at the same time .. the problem is that trying to record gameplay with Bandicam and webcam with camtasia, there is always a sharp drop in framerate, but I have to try with other software like sony vegas or movie maker

Yes, but with an external camera (not an internal pc webcam) should be possible avoid framerate stuttering. When i suggest to recording at the same time, is just to  avoid synchronization problems during editing.

I have already tried to reduce the graphics settings in the game .. however the results are not just bad, the video quality is excellent but there is always that little lag bothers you .. and then register while I feel a strange noise that comes from the guitar sound, like clicking sounds, even when there are not register but feel less ...So it seems easy but it is not, I'll working on it and I think it will take up next week :)

It's not so easy, and  certainly pc system requirements  are relevant because you have to consider that multiple software running at the same time  required system resources.

I didn't read this  accurately, but you don't need to use bandicam and camtasia all at once. You need just  Camtasia that  is able to recording gameplay and webcam (you can select with camtasia the size of the screen that you wanna capture to obtain a  video, so just select rocksmith in window mode). Try to use it with rocksmith in window mode as i suggest some post before. Of course there is lag issues with two software running   at the same time plus rockmith  and system requirements not so high.
