Odd coloring in captured videos

Post by Slowaner on Wed Aug 05, 2015 6:00 pm

When I use x264 vfw codec to capture my games.
I have odd coloring when I open captured videos in any video editors (Vegas Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Corel Video Studio Pro) except of Movavi Video Editor.
Also my videos opens normally (without odd coloration) in all video players that I have (GOM Player, Windows Media Player, Windows Media Player Classic x86, Windows Media Player Classic x64, Video and TV in Widows 10)

This trouble I have in ALL videos captured with any program (Bandicam, Fraps, PlayClaw etc.).

Capture settings are on the screenshot

I capture 60 FPS.

You can see what I have on videos bellow

What should I do to solve my problem?

Can you post MediaInfo details for one of the captured files?

Change output mode from VFW to File and save as a .mp4 file.

I tried capturing with output mode "to file". This video is normal but it is captured with 25fps (I need 60fps).
When I captures 30fps with output mode "vfw" in any program I have normal video (without odd coloring).
I need to capture 60fps without odd coloring.

Why do you need 60 fps? Because you seem to be capturing at 25fps. Messing with the framerate like you are doing now confuses those programs and results in wrong decoding. I think they are skipping frames.

If you really need a different framerate, you should change it during editing, not during capturing.

Add this to the extra command line field:
Code:
--keyint 1
Then each frame in the video will be a keyframe that is independent of other frames. That will probably avoid the decoding bug that some of your programs have. But quality will be lower because encoding is less efficient.

How can I configure h264 to capture exactly 60fps or above?

With '--keyint 1' quality is really terrible. I won't capture videos with this settings.

If you want proper 60fps, then you need to capture at 60fps.

How?
My capturing program captures 60fps, but codec works in 25fps. How can I make codec work in 60 fps?

The codec is not forcing 25fps. It should work at whatever framerate your capturing tool gives it as input.

All my capturing tools gives as input 60fps setting. When I use other codecs I get real 60fps on output.
What am I doing wrong?

I don't know.

I suggest trying a lossless codec such as Lagarith.
