    Skipped Frames on a new high-end system during Recording

    https://obsproject.com/logs/rfphZ0wW__MX3RaV As you can see from this, I'm recording and rendering in 2k, but I'd imagine my system could handle it.

    Question / Help NVENC (new) Encoding Lag

    I recently upgraded to an RTX 2060 Super and was looking forward to the boost in recording quality that should've come along with using NVENC instead of x264 on my Ryzen 5 2600.
