[Solved] Fantastic Codec, a couple questions!
Bought MagicYUV quite a while ago, and have been using it ever since! Did have a few questions that I wanted to ask, and thought this would be the best place to ask!
So I play/record/edit in 4K, 60FPS, and have been using Dxtory to record all the footage (gaming) as well as Premiere to encode/edit. Haven't had any performance issues whatsoever, codec performs and looks absolutely great.
I wanted to ask what the best settings would be, quality and also performance wise. I tried RGB, and 4:4:4, but ended up just using 4:2:0 as I couldn't notice much of a quality difference, but the files ended up being smaller.
Keep up good work, and thanks for the great product/service!
P.S. I found this post:
"In the general case, recording gameplay is usually sufficient using the YUV 4:2:0 variant of the codec, which gets less than half the bitrate of the RGB variant.
If you really want the highest quality, but still reduce bitrate, YUV 4:4:4 is a very good option, as it retains all the chroma (no subsampling), but still compresses better than direct RGB. So you might want to try that too."
But it doesn't mention RGBA (?), nor 4:2:2. It also doesn't mention which compression method would be best.
