Nice to see camber will have some meaning in this game. I hope tyre temps are tied up with how much camber you put on the car.

What settings are you using (ingame and rendering)? Your video looks butter smooth with nice quality!

ingame is max/ultra/whatever is highest.. just not grass as i dont care about that :D

im using OBS to record with...

https://obsproject.com/download

Here is a setup guide:
1. First go into settings
2. Under encoding set bitrate to 5000 and in general just the settings i use.
3. Under video choose 60 FPS or what you do get
4. Right click where it says scenes and click "add scene" name that scene what you want.
5. Make sure Pcars or other game is open.
6. Right click where it says sources and click "game capture"
7. Make sure application says "[pcars64]: Project Cars TM"
8. Now you are ready to start recording.. do that by pushing "start recording" it should show you a live picture of what you are recording while you are recording it.




for editing im using Adobe Premiere pro CC and rendering in 1080P 60 FPS at 120Mbps... if i do longer videos i usually only render at 40-50 Mbps


OBS is the program i think most people are using to stream with as it can be connected directly to twitch and stuff

I'm using OBS too, but was disappointed with my local video quality, I set mine to stream and record locally at the same time. I then limited mine to 2500 bitrate as I didn't want to kill my upload when streaming. I think this then affected the local recording and it was pixelated as hell!! I'm going to try Mirillis Action tonight........ ;)

i found great quality with around 4000-5000 bitrate but i dont stream aswell.. most likely that makes my local files better as it dont have to do two things...

Yeah, the thing is when you're streaming as well is that you have to think about your upload speed, and also the download speed of the people that will be watching it. When I started streaming a couple of months ago I used 3500kbps bitrate, but then some people (presumably people with no the best internet) said the stream was lagging a lot for them, so I've decreased it to 2500-3000 since, and yeah the quality is definitely not as good as it would be with a higher bitrate when not streaming.

have you maybe tried to scale the video down and but the bitrate higher? i dont know what quality twitch streams with but i dont think its 1080P unless you are partner thingie...

Hmm ok, what kind of file sizes are you getting for say a 10min video once you've rendered ready to upload to youtube?

just checked...
10min excactly at 30Mbps is around 2GB... original video was 20 min and just under 600MB
seeing as i have a 50/50 connection i dont really care about size :D
in general im sure i could render videos like those two above at 30Mbps instead of 120 and still get good quality.. but when its short clips like that i overdo it so you can see all the details you need to see :D
