Hi there guys and girls!

 

I have the extreme pleasure to present you Nvidia Shadowplay at OCN! In this thread, we will be discussing potential changes that can be implemented, as we have out resident Nvidia rep: aka: ManuelG

 

Before getting into anything further, I would like to thank iARDA for passing me the ownership of this thread. iARDA was the thread creator and did a magnificent job in creating and maintaining this thread! It has thus been passed to me, as owner from the 5th of February 2014.

 

 

What is Shadowplay?

 

Well, here's a video overview (of when it was released) from Nvidia themselves:

Can I use it?

First of all you need to have the following to be eligible to use it (as seen from GeForce Experience)  - I should also note this is for Nvidia GPUs only:

 

 

 

 

How do I get it?

The best way and most reliable way is to download GeForce Experience. With it you will get the latest updates of Shadowplay and will be able to set it up there:

http://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience/download

 

 

 

Changelog

Here's the changelog that's occurred so far (quite impressive from when it started):

 

January 23rd, 2014
Adds option to change the directory of the ShadowPlay buffer
Fixes missing audio when playing in 5.1 surround mode
Adds 30 FPS recording option
Adds custom bit rate control
Adds output resolution control
Adds microphone on push function

 

December 17th, 2013
Enables broadcast to Twitch. This initial beta release supports full-screen broadcast only.

 

December 3rd, 2013

Removes 3.8GB file limitation in Win7.

Record up to 20 minutes in Shadow Mode
Unlimited recording in Manual Mode
ShadowPlay creates new files once 3.8GB is reached
Captures video without re-scaling at up to 1080p. At higher resolutions, aspect ratio is preserved.
Adds microphone recording
Captures video at 60 fps instead of 62 fps
Reduces stuttering in captured video

 

November 12th, 2013

Removes CPU restrictions for ShadowPlay
ShadowPlay videos can now be saved with in paths containing non-Latin characters
 

October 28th, 2013

Shadow Mode records up to the last 20 minutes of your game play
Manual Mode records unlimited footage
High-quality, hardware-accelerated H.264 recording at 1080p
GeForce GTX 650 or higher GPU required

 

 

 

 

What's the best Sony Vegas Render Settings?

 

This really varies from person to person - however I have found my own Sony Vegas render settings and they seem to work great for me. Do remember, YouTube only displays up to 30FPS and does severely compress your video:

 

Very important:

-Remember BEST settings in the render quality section

-Remember to UNTICK "resample" in your video file

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAQ & Known Problems:

-Windows N version problem (however there's a fix for it, see below):

Notice for people using the N version of Windows 8. (Click to show)

Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 8.1:

Windows6.2-KB2703761-x64.msu
Windows6.2-KB2703761-x86.msu

-Multi-Monitor incurs a significant frame drop (reported to be over 30%) -> Seems to be tied to Aero on Windows 7, as Win8 doesn't have the issue

-SLI Performance bug with drivers after 331.65 (20-30%) finally fixed after 6months 20/09/14

 

Wanted Changes

 

-Records with different audio channels (thus you have a different audio channels for your mic and core gameplay)

I'm hoping this is the case for myself. I have had nothing but bad experiences with screen capture software and gaming.
Fingers crossed!

I'm thinking that it's going to be released with the GTX 760 and a new driver tomorrow.

Nvidia NDA's usually end in around 3-4 hours.
