Recording Battlefield4 videos
Hey guys I know some of you have asked me what I use to record videos so I thought this may be helpful to you.
When I records and edit videos its a three step process meaning:
- I have a piece of software that captures the video.
- I have to transcode the video into something usable that i can edit.
- I edit it with editing software.
I will list the software I use below and explain its use so here goes.
Capturing Video From Battlefield4
To capture the feed from Battlefield4 I use Open Broadcast Software
Open Broadcaster Software is free and open source software for video recording and live streaming. Supported features include:
- Encoding using H264 (x264) and AAC.
- Support for Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) and NVENC.
- Unlimited number of scenes and sources.
- Live RTMP streaming to Twitch, YouTube, DailyMotion, XYZ Stream Hosting and more.
- File output to MP4 or FLV.
- GPU-based game capture for high performance game streaming.
- DirectShow capture device support (webcams, capture cards, etc).
- Windows 8 high speed monitor capture support.
- Bilinear or lanczos3 resampling.
For some reason my version does not spit out a local file to MP4 so I have to transcode it which is step 2. OBS is what I use to Stream my game play live as well.
Transcoding Video from Battlefield4
To transcode the video I captured locally onto my desktop with OBS I have to process the video with another piece of software called Media Coder.
I have to transcode the video because for some reason OBS does not create a local MP4 file format for me, it creates an FLV file. My editing program does not understand the FLV file format.
Media Coder will get me the file format I need that my editing software will understand. Once the file is transcoded into an MP4 I amd then able to edit it.
Editing Battlefield4 Video
For editing I use Adobe Premiere.
I am sure there are other programs to edit video like movie maker or whatever this is what I use.
