GeForce Experience 1.8.2 Update Brings New Features To ShadowPlay
Since its first beta release last October, NVIDIA ShadowPlay has quickly become the most exciting and talked about feature of GeForce Experience. The ability to capture gameplay footage quickly, easily and with little storage or performance impact was a huge hit with gamers, and to date over three million clips have been captured. Recently, we also added microphone support and the ability to broadcast direct to Twitch.
First and foremost, a new option in ShadowPlay’s Quality dropdown enables customization of the capture resolution, the capture frame rate, and the capture bit rate, giving you greater control over capture output. In particular, the frame rate option is of great benefit to YouTubers, enabling video to be captured at YouTube’s supported 30 frames per second, avoiding a 60-to-30 frame rate conversion during the publication process, which can impact video quality considerably.
Note that switching from 60 fps to 30 fps by itself will not reduce the output file size; since bit rate is calculated per second, this will allocate twice the amount of bits per frame. To retain the same quality level whilst also reducing frame rates from 60 fps to 30 fps, reduce the bit rate by half. This will keep quality per frame the same while reducing the file size.
Finally it's possible to record at 30 fps which saves a lot of time in rendering and uploading a video to youtube. What is your experience with these new Features? Let us know in the comments below.
