Do i need a 1080p monitor to shoot footage in 1080p?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have one 1080p monitor lying around, but i still prefer my 720p monitor. It just has better colors/size etc. Can i still record 1080p footage, if i set the game's resolution to 1080p? Or will it simply not be in 1080p, becouse my monitor doesn't support it?

How can you set game resolution to 1080p? Won't the games list the resolutions that are possible within your monitor?

Nope, that's why I'm wondering. I can go upto 1920x1080, but it sort of looks weird on the monitor.

I think a few of the screen cap programs patch into the video signal BEFORE it goes to the screen- so you have options to set resolution separate from the display resolution.

That said I don't do much recording...

You can also force Downsampling, that will give you 1080p footage anyway, might look weird on your screen but the footage will come out 1080p. also I'm pretty sure if you are using Fraps or other video recording programs it will simply upscale the image to 1080p and not be true 1080p, so in my opinion Downsampling is your best bet. Just use either AMD/Nvidia control panel, can you give us more info on the setup/monitor you are using and to what purpose you want to use it, that way we can give you a more precise feedback.

Go to Nvidia Control Panel - Change Resolution - Customize - Create Custom resolution - here change Horizontal Pixels to 1920 and Vertical Lines to 1080 click test if it works the screen will blink and will ask you want to keep this resolution, also if possible use the hdmi. After that your screen should be at 1080p downscaled, when you play a game it will allow you to choose 1080p and when you record it it will be true 1080p even if your screen is just showing a compressed one.

No problem, it flicker because windows sucks at this =P, anyway you might consider getting a proper monitor, your rig sure deserves it, 1080p monitors are so cheap now a days. Anyway have fun.
