Video looks blurry and pixelated even on vp9 codec (PLEASE HELP)


New Member
I am trying to record DOOM Eternal but my videos looks a lot more pixelated than others.

here are my OBS settings:
OBS Log file:

and heres the video (quality test) :

I have the output resolution at 2K because I want youtube to give me their VP9 codec. Also I am comparing 1080p Quality with other DOOM videos such as this one You can see that Smvr's 1080p quality is a lot more clearer than mine, even though I record at "Lossless" quality. Any help would be appreciated.

PS: I only record, I DONT stream.
