Question / Help Frames dropping pretty bad in game


New Member
I've been trying to record games for some time now and whenever I start recording all the frames just start dropping like crazy as in going from 80 to 35 in certain games (WoW). I don't plan on recording anything "fast paced" or and FPS mostly MMOs. Looking at guides on here and google I do not have any idea as to what I'm doing wrong in the config. Also changing in game settings changes nothing.
Currently using a 2560x1440 monitor at 60Hz. I do not plan on doing any streaming as my internet is way to bad to make it work. I'll include specs and the log file below.
i5-4690k @ 3.5 GHz
GTX 1060 6gb
16 GB 1600 RAM
64 bit W10

Thanks for any help guys !

1) Instead of x264 and CBR, switch to NVENC encoder and CQP, set at a value of 16-20 (lower value = better quality but larger file).

2) Create separate scenes for each capture source as placing them in the same one leads to problems. So one scene for display capture, another for game capture, etc...

3) Cap your FPS through vsync, ingame limiter or Rivatuner.
