Hello dear forum,
I would like to record videos with OBS. But unfortunately, the image quality of the output videos never matches the image quality of the camera. No matter how much I look around in the settings of OBS or the capture device, the quality just doesn't get better or reach the quality of an FHD video from the camera. The preview image in OBS, i.e. the captured live image from the camera, is razor sharp. Only when I look at the video captured by OBS the image quality is not the desired 1080p but rather muddy/pixelated 720p. When I change the bitrate in the settings, the picture doesn't get any better. I also tried all this on a much more powerful Windows PC. Also the picture is not better/sharper.
Do you guys and girls have any ideas what the problem could be? I am slowly at the end with my Latin.
As equipment I used:
Canon EOS R
Elgato Cam Link 4K
MacBook Pro with M1 and 16GB Ram
appropriate HDMI cable and adapter for the MacBook
OBS settings can be found in the picture
Thanks for your help
