AnsweredIs It Possible to Record Good Quality Video with OBS or Is It only for Streaming?

Hi, guys. I was using OBS Studio for screen recording because someone told me it's the best recording tool for gaming content. However, I have no idea how to set high-quality recordings, or which format to choose...thanks for your help.

Of course, yes, it is possible for you to record high-quality videos with OBS Studio. I have been using it for many years, so I know it quite well.

First, you need to be clear about which CPU are you using. NVIDIA GPU or AMD GPU? The settings for different GPUs also differ. As for me, I recommend you to use NVIDIA GPU for OBS recording, as it has better performance according to the test. 

🍃Check the guide below to see how to use it to record good-quality videos with OBS Studio.

Step 1. Open the OBS Studio on your computer. Tap the "Settings" on the right bottom. 

Step 2. Go to the "Video" section. Choose "Base(Canvas) Resolution" and "Output(Scaled) Resolution" according to your recording device.

Step 3. If your output resolution is lower than the base resolution, you can choose "Lanczos (Sharpend scaling, 36 samples)" to help OBS better improve your recording quality. 

Step 4. Then, click on the "Output" part to set the exporting files. In Recording, select "Indistinguishable quality" for recording quality if your disk place is big enough. As for the Output format, you need to choose according to your own needs. Formats including FLV, MP4, and MKV are accessible in OBS. 

Following the steps above gives you accessibility to recording high-quality videos with OBS Studio. It might be a little difficult to understand for computer novices. If you don't want to take too much learning about recording knowledge, I suggest you try EaseUS RecExperts, the best OBS alternative. This recording supports more exporting file formats than OBS. Besides, its user-friendly interface makes it possible for you to fully control it, changing the recording sets at your own will.
