My footage is choppy even though OBS isn't reporting any substantial frame dips?


New Member
Hello, any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated as I have been bashing my head against the keyboard for hours now. I'm new to OBS and I am happy with the quality of the footage so far except for the framerate, which is choppy inside of OBS' preview and in the final recording, even though OBS isn't reporting any dropped frames.

I'm using a ZasLuke 4K 60FPS Capture Card to record my PS5 through OBS Studio.

Here is an example of some recorded footage.

And here is the log for that recording. Please let me know if you need more information or if I have copied the wrong part of the log. If I'm correct reading this, I should only have dropped 9 frames total throughout the clip, yet the footage has some major stutters.

According to OBS, my PC's CPU usage never goes above 18% while recording, and most of the thread's I've looked through with similar issues are people trying to record and run games on the same PC, but my PS5 should be doing all the heavy lifting in that regard so I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
