Hi everyone!
I am only recording short game clips (mostly fast-paced games like fps genre). Can u explain me the settings? Which should i use on my system? I want lossles-quality recordings as possible, file sizes are not problem for me because my recordings usually will be so short. Should i use CPU or GPU, which rate control should i use(and with settings) and how should be all other advanced settings? I tried something but im confused now. Thanks in advance :) <3
GPU: GTX 1060 3GB
CPU: RYZEN 5 2600x
8x2 RAM 2993MHz

Please take a look at the analizer

After that check out the wiki, where more information about OBS is detailed and you'll find guides

Then in the forums, theres a Guides section too.
