Re: VGA Capture Thread

Law212 wrote on 2021-08-06, 17:53: I grabbed an elgato HD60s from kijiji for about 80 bucks , and it works amazing for both modern game recording and retro. And it also works if you shoot like native DOS at it? My Elgato Camlink cant capture that (if converted via a trivial cheap adapter to HDMI)

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Yeah, I think it's more or less a coincidence on where it shows up and where it doesnt, depending on how much it takes to convert a frame and amount of frames. It might very well be, that higher resolutions decrease the actual converted framerate output which then does not show the diagonal lines. …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

My guess is that it's the 70 Hz being compressed to 60 which is causing these artifacts. Can you go back to windows and put it to the resolution which causes these issues, and then go to the settings of the graphics card (the Advanced button below the resolution) and change the Hz between 60 and 70 …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Guys i started testing video capturing on my win95 pc, surprisingly 70hz is accepted without much fuss but apparently resolutions below 800x600 produce a weird diagonal pattern noise, i thought it was related to 70hz but i even used vga240 to change the refresh rate in DOS and the noise is still …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Thanks, yeah, just checked a video and it looks great compared to the RetroTink. Now I need to check other comparisons. ^^ On the con side: That thing is also expensive (107.69€ incl shipping) and doesnt even has HDMI output, meaning you definitely need an ossc which starts at 75€ (ali express). So …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

There is a transcoder called the koryuu that converts composite and Y/C to component that's designed for use with the OSSC Hrm, but you can also use the SVideo from the C64 directly via scart and then use it as composite in the OSSC, but this has worse picture than SVGA. I doubt that the koryuu …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I got a somewhat related question: I just bought a C64 with an S-Video Out. And this opens another world of pain as OSSCs can't capture Svideo and just composite. For SVideo there seem to be three recommendations to Do SVideo->HDMI: Startech Converter for 175,68€+11,30€ shipping, RetroTink for 80- …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

To be honest, though, even the price you would currently need to pay seems decent for what is, at this price point and feature set, practically a unique product (full RGB capture is both not common and not cheap) that is not only still supported by the manufacturer in Windows 10 (and apparently …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Oh, nice coincidence that this thread is reactivated. Had just been looking into the topic on ebay again... But now I am a bit confused about the Datapath E1S. @Artex I Guess you bought it via ebay? @Darry: So assuming I am using the Datapath E1S on a PC, I am recording via OBS, and I am playing in …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I like a bit of blur better, it more closely resembles the real budget CRT that I have (and I had with my 486). They never were sharp, also not in Windows if you went above 60 Hz to prevent headaches. Only when I got a good weekend job I could afford a proper CRT and after that I went with LCD and …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

here's how that sometimes looks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua1wAYgZNbk This question is more aimed at IMI, but how did you manage to create a CRT bezel overlay like that with reflective properties around the edge of the CRT bezel? I have only seen that done before through retroarch. Is what …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Yeah, actually found this post right after writing here and posted there as well, as the options there seem to be outdated - or its just because of another device, but I doubt that. Will check the firmware stuff. Also thanks a lot for checking on your PC!

Re: VGA Capture Thread

So I ordered the 4k Capture thing from Elgato, because I need to use it for a camera anyways. However I was wondering...there is nothing to install (well, it got its software but that seems to be standalone, but no drivers or anything), with the camera it becomes a bit hard to test colors and I …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

What I'm trying to achieve is having the video output from a retro machine appear in window on my main machine's desktop. This window I can then move, resize, minimize, etc. Not unlike if I was using a virtual machine. There are monitors that allow multiple simultaneous inputs (PIP), but all the …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I just received answer from their customer support. They answered in German, but they basically said, that they are only offering this card to professional/industrial users and therefore it's only available via special distributors. The normal price it's sold for is 767€ + Taxes.

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I am located in Europe. I see one at the moment, which is going for 72$+46.90$ Shipping + Tax which probably is another 30$ or so. That's around 100€ plus tax. If it survives the trip. I see another e2s, but that one is going for 697,84€ from China +19€ Shipping. Not sure if the e2s is actually as …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

But...it is available. ^^ I just contacted Datapath and asked them where to actually buy that thing, or if you have to wait for it showing up on ebay (hasn't been there for a while now) or if you have to pay on pages like https://www.streamingvalley.nl/product/datapath-vision-rgb-e1s-dvi-capture- …
