4K Recording

As a self-proclaimed product evangelist... I gotta know, I've got some folks looking to switch from XSplit, however, they need 4K recording. Do we have any stories about successful 4K recording, experiences, etc?

  • Hey Brandon Ford ,

    While I have never tried to do so, you might be able to by switching the canvas size under the output tab to a custom size, as well as switching the encoding settings to the correct dimensions for recording. Last time I heard, we didn't officially support 4k. Bryce Stejskal might have some more information about this.

  • I couldn't handle 4K on my end, even if I tried. Just had people curious. LOL. We'll see what Bryce says. :D

  • I have been able to handle 4k 30fps on a xeon x99 machine using hardware acceleration for the encode at a high bitrate... but on an i7... no such luck. Tried it on my 6700k machine and dropped a frame every few seconds when a game was running or whenever the system did anything other than encode really.

    I wouldn't think to much about 4K right now unless you are strictly a youtube streamer looking to differentiate, and even then, most of your viewers would have to transcode it down due to the bandwidth. I had to bump it to about 15,000Kbps and still think it should have been higher.

  • I have an Elgato 4K60 Pro and i can't get the settings to go past 1440p.  I can create a 4k profile in the encoding "More" option but I can't get custom encoding settings to stick.  Only the pre set drop down choices seem to be allowed.  Anyone have a workaround on this?
