Hi! You can change your OBS settings by following the tips below:

  • Change the output resolution to 1920 x 1080, 2560 x 1440, 3840 x 2160, or even higher for high-quality content. It just depends on your device's performance.
  • Set the output FPS as 60, as it is essential for capturing fast-paced game action.
  • Change the video bitrate to 5000- 8000 kbps or 12000 - 24000 kbps.
  • If you use a Nvidia GPU, use the NVENC encoder. Or, try X264.
  • Select 160 Kbps as your audio bitrate to capture both game audio and commentary clearly.

Once you set your OBS like the above, you will get high-quality gameplay video footage. However, it is too difficult for most users, especially novices, to change the settings. Besides, the OBS Studio is also hard to operate. So, for those users, we highly recommend trying an easy yet professional game recorder, like EaseUS RecExperts.
