Question / Help Game at max FPS while recording capped at 10 FPS - Need help!


New Member
I was able to record footage with OBS Studio before. I have no idea if it was because I added more RAM to my system, but I was able to record footage just fine, even with a facecam. This was 11/01/2018.

Added more RAM 12/18/2018
total 32 GB was 16 GB

Now today, 12/27/2018 The same game and settings, it drops to a max of 10fps and 6% CPU usage. While the game runs perfectly fine.

I don't know what's going on, but I could really use some help! I did not change any settings. The only thing that is different is the RAM I added on the dates above. Not sure what other info I can provide to better recieve help on the matter.

I copy and pasted system specs from steam. Not sure how to make a link of it to make the post shorter.

Also, I don't if this is a bug or not. I just turned off Studio Mode and I got my frames back up to 60 FPS. With Studio Mode on, I get the low 10 FPS mentioned above.
