I just got a new hard drive today and I have a problem. i use Dxtory to record my videos but this is my problem, when I start to record in 1080p, 30 frames sometimes 60, Lagarith Lossless Codec, multithreading, mode: YV12, Processing Threads 4, Force CPU Processing Off and sometimes on, The game has little lag spikes at times and the video will show those lag spikes. But when I record in 720p, I have no LAG what so ever. Game settings. 1920 1080 59,whateva frames.

Specs:
i5 3570k
SSD 120GB for Boot and Dxtory
1TB for Battlefield, Orgin
Western Digital Black 1TB for recordings (new hard drive) for the Dxtory benchmark Write Size (MB) 1000, Speed around 100MB/sec.
GTX 580
8GB ram

Results:

Its due to hardrive speed. You need a pretty fast seperate HDD to record 1080p to. I didnt have problems with Spinpoint F3 recording in 1080p, but i bought new HDD's and started recording to a 1TB drive with the same specs and i have the exact issue when recording in 1080p.

Get the PICVideo codec or x264 Codec and you should be all good...

These 2 codecs have a really small file size, think its like 10-15gb pr 30min recorded, give or take a few...

If you use the Dxtory codec you would need a lot of disk space and a SSD dedicated for recording if its in 1080p, since its the only thing that can keep up with the huge amount of data thats been written pr sec, so my advise to you would be that you either get another SSD, or get and use one of the 2 mentioned codecs above...

I'm sorry but I'm not going to use those Codec because PICVideo codec you need to buy and x264 Codec doesnt work on Sony Vegas.....

Try the MSI Afterburner.
I was a huge fan of Battlefield 3 but then I got tired of cooling it.

CHECK your recording quality. I record at 2x2 medium at 85 percent scale at 4gigs a minute.

Make sure you are WRITING to the right HDD.

you can try dropping the Lagarith codec quality settings. this means less data written to disk and thus can potentially avoid your hard drive bottleneck.

also, assuming you have a modern CPU, use 2 processing threads. there's no point assigning more than that to recording, and it leaves more available processing power for the game.

You mentioned you've got a new harddrive, so I assume that means you've two HDD's? If so, use Dxtory's own codec, record using rawcap, use YUV 410 and record across both HDD's. This might help you: http://phyrefli.com/images/Dxtory-settings.png [phyrefli.com]

You'll need to use their additional tool to stitch the two recorded streams back together after you've finished recording.

This is an example of recording using that setup (I record in 1920*1200): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB6oFhGrXRw [youtube.com]

Hope that helps.

Sure it does, you just need to install ffdshow and then activate the x264 codec and it should work like a charm =)

I had the same problem when I used Fraps, honestly Fraps is the biggest pile of shit I have ever seen.
Try MSI Afterburner it works great for me, I only have one HDD and I can record just fine in 1080p at 60 FPS.

I have recorded about 1 hour of gameplay and only once did I get a lag spike. I record with 90% quality and it looks good on YouTube.

MSI After burning doesnt work on my computer because I have a wireless headset and wired headsets dont work as well.

I'm using the lagarith too.
I have a 7200rpm hard drive but my game gets a freaking 40 frame drop. While recording 30fps 1080p
To make the game run smooth I have to put my settings to low.
How do I get the x264 codec, I'd like to try it out.

Specs below. As always V

Should I use multithreading?

Video showing me using those settings will be up later today.

use the dxtory codec man ..

record 10 seconds in high quality, and see how big the file is .

If the file is bigger than 1000 MB's , you need to lower your recording setting, or use a different codec that compresses, but that means frame rate loss while playing.

@RivalxFactor

This is what it looks like when rendered and uploaded to Youtube.

It doesn't looks laggy when rendered.. Not Sure why...

@OP
Whats your in games settings at? if you running ultra @1080p and also recording at 1080p this could be the reason your system cant keep up to the task at hand.

Hence the reason at 720p you get no lag.
