Lagarith Video Codec as Possible Video Capture Format? -
| posts: 3
It would be nice to have a compressed lossless format added as an option to MSI Afterburner's video capture function. If you're capturing a lot of static scenes (or scenes which otherwise don't change much), a smart lossless codec like Lagarith produces not only a better quality video, but also often a smaller file.
The codec is pretty fast and supported by a number of media players and editing suites. In testing on my Q9450 processor, it used about 25% of the processors time while encoding a 1920x1200 uncompressed video stream. It seemed to be bottlenecked only by the speed at which my drives could read (about 140mb/s).
Is adding a new codec a remote possibility? If so, is lagarith a possibility? Is it fast enough?
