Blurred screenrecordings


New Member
Hello i am new to OBS. I just started out using it for some screen recording at 1080p@60Hz.
The recorded video is always blurry when i use Softwareencoding. I already lowered the refreshrate to 30hz and i did a test with
recording in 720p. The result however is always a blurry image regardless of what is going on at the screen.
I tried to use VAAPI for encoding with my AMD GPU instead. This worked out better but as soon as there is movement
on the screen when a new window is opened or a game is running the image get blurry as well. As soon as the motions stop the image sharpenes up to good quality.

Here are my systemspecs :
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 5700
Drivers: MESA 20.2.10
OS: Kubuntu: 20.04
OBS Version: Latest stable Version (Flatpakversion)
