  1. I use x264vfw codec for Dxtory recording with command line "--keyint 1" to be able open this recording in Sony Vegas Pro without artifacts for editing.

    Everything works perfect until I try to cut recorder video into parts in Sony Vegas. I split video to three parts, delete middle fragment I don't need. And after that the same issue always occurs: at the beginning of third part Sony Vegas shows last frame of first part video for just one second.

    It could not be a problem, because usually I put fragments next to each other, but sometimes I put blank screen between, and this issue is very visible - it looks like frame that should not be here, appears at the start of splitted clip.

    Is there a way to fix this issue without converting whole video to other format before editing in Vegas (so far I found this is only way to fix)?

    I wonder if you commandline is being passed ? In theory, you shouldn't see those issues with intra encoding (--keyint 1) even with AVI container . What does mediainfo (view=>text) say about dxtory recording ?

    1) You can try to cut the segment in vdub before importing into vegas (using direct stream copy mode)

    2) You can try re-wrapping into a different container , more suitable for h.264 (e.g. .mp4 , or a transport stream .m2ts, or .ts)

  3. Thank you for answer, it made me think that it can be issue with Dxtory. I decided to use VirtualDub to convert video from Dxtory using the same settings I use in Dxtory from x264 video into x264 video again. I used this file in Vegas now, and this issue doesn't appear at all.

    MediaInfo (from MPHC) shows info about file recorded by Dxtory:

    Code:
    Video
    ID                             : 0

    Frame rate                     : 30.000 fps

    Color space                    : YUV
    Chroma subsampling             : 4:2:0

    Scan type                      : Progressive

    Writing library                : x264 core 130 r2274bm c832fe9
    After I converted using VirtualDub:
    Code:
    Video
    ID                             : 0
    Format                         : x264
    Codec ID                       : x264
    Bit rate                       : 23.5 Mbps
    Width                          : 1 280 pixels
    Height                         : 720 pixels
    Display aspect ratio           : 16:9
    Frame rate                     : 30.000 fps
    Bits/(Pixel*Frame)             : 0.849

    While I wrote this post I realized about something. And I think finally I found issue, and probably now I fixed it (tested just few minutes before). I changed in x264vfw option called "VFW FourCC" from H264 into x264 and it works now without this repeat frame issue in Vegas. I recorded test video with this setting changed and now it shows the same info I converted using VirtualDub.

    Is this gameplay capture using dxtory ?

    Is your hardware fast enough to record at 60 ? Or are you dropping frames?

    Are vegas project settings correctly setup at 60FPS

    im using dxtory indeed, and i dont really know if im skipping any frames, and my hardware is powerfull enough to record 60FPS, im even doing 4k at 25 which is its original, but i want true 60hz, can you help me to achieve that? , im trying to get a good Quality/resolution/FPS ratio XD i know its much to ask but thats part of the job

    What are your hardware specs? What are you capturing? 1080p60 ? What x264vfw settings ? What is being recorded ? If it's a game, is gameplay FPS actually that high ?

    You can go frame by frame in vdub with the recording to see if there are large jumps in motion or repeat frames.

    How are you determining that it's "fast forwarding" ? How are you examining the file ?

    my hardware specs are as follows:
    CPU : i7- 3820 @ 3.60GHz
    RAM : 16GB
    SSD : 128GB (OS)
    HDD : 3TB (files & games)
    GPU : GTX 780 in SLI
    monitor : Asus PB287Q (4K screen)

    for the rest im capturing BF4 since i decided i wanted to upload some vids for fun, problem is ive been striving to get a good game capture software to record 4K, ive tried a lot and ended up with Action! and Dxtory!, action! is simple and records good at 30FPS nicely but makes gigantic files, but with Dxtory and the 264 codec i can controll everything in the video itself so after i got the bitrate right and resolution i discovered it natively does it at 25FPS, and i wanted 30FPS or even 60FPS, but when changing that in the "extra commandc line" part doing "--fps 60" if i record a 1 min video the audio records well but the recorded video is 25seconds, and just looking at the video it looks like it has double the speed, so my question is:

    how can i have either 30 or 60 FPS without it being accelerated or skipping frames???, for the rest im very new to this but i got as far as this on my own so please help...

    i hope i awnsered all your questions and now you can help me

    as for the x264vfw configuration:

    Preset: Ultrafast
    Tuning: none
    Profile: Auto
    Level: Auto
    Convert to YUV 4:2:0
    Rate controll: Single pass - bitrate-based (ABR)
    Average bitrate (kbit/s) 60000
    it outputs directly to an AVI file
    extra command line: --fps 60

    Where is the audio?

    It says 20sec

    3840x2160 might be difficult to capture at 60FPS

    If you test 1920x1080 or 1280x720 60FPS, do you still get the "fast forwarding" ? That will help to rule of if the resolution is the problem

    How are you testing the playback? What software? Try another player like MPCHC, Potplayer, Smplayer, VLC etc...

    hahah youre getting the wrong idea of that, see dxtory encodes the sound and it includes a video stream altho it just a black screen, see the first i posted named BOOTY is the video encoded from x264 and the other one named \bf4 2014-07-25 01-52-12-122 is just audio, after recording i have to encode both the audio and the video together and ill get my video, if you want i can upload a 30second sample of the 3k @25fps and another one at the supposed 60FPS, so you can see the difference

    So the 25fps video recorded fine ? both audio & video ?

    Can you record 60fps at lower resoutions ok?

    I don't know what's going on. Perhaps try asking in the Dxtory forum
