How to Start Recording Better Quality Gameplay Videos




Recording gameplay videos have become a popular way for gamers to share their accomplishments, show-off, or even create content. Even though more tools are available nowadays to record such videos, many still find that recording high-quality gameplay videos can be challenging.

Quality Gameplay Videos

If you would like to start recording better quality gameplay videos, there are a few areas that you should try to optimize and improve:

The resolution of the recording should be the same as the game resolution. Otherwise, the video will have a lower definition and fewer details than what you see on your screen. Typically games nowadays run in 1080p, which is the resolution that you should try to record at.

  • Framerate of the recording

The framerate of the video that you record will determine how smooth any movement is in it, and so the higher it is, the better. You should record at 60 frames per second for gameplay videos if you want the video to look really high quality and fluid.

  • In-game graphics

Because gameplay videos are essentially recorded based on what is on your screen, if the in-game graphics settings aren’t high, then the quality of the video that you record will look poor. That is complicated further because games and recording both take up system resources, and your computer will need to handle that load. As a rule, you should set the in-game graphics as high as possible so long as they don’t impact your game’s performance while you’re recording. If the game starts to lag and its frame rate drops – dial back the graphics settings slightly.

  • The audio quality of microphone input

While the quality of the system (i.e., game) audio should be an area that you don’t need to worry about, the quality of audio from a microphone is another story. Typically gameplay videos contain audio commentary recorded on the spot via a microphone – and that audio quality will vary depending on the quality of the microphone and whether or not there is any background noise. If you’re going to be recording audio from a microphone, it may be worth investing in a good microphone to begin with. On top of that, you may need to tidy up the audio, adjust the audio levels, and edit it later during post-production.

If you look into the factors listed above, you should improve the quality of your gameplay videos. All that you really need to get started is a game screen recorder, such as Gecata by Movavi, for example. As you may have noticed, the one area that may impact the quality of your gameplay videos that is difficult to handle is the in-game graphics and the impact they can have on your system resources. If that turns out to be an issue, you may want to strategically upgrade parts of your rig to cope with it better.
