Notes

The settings here are so I can stream while recording longer categories and upload more effectively with smaller video size. The test video was recorded while stream was active to test. IL runs would be done at non-downscaled quality with higher bitrate. This is a longer video (~4:30 mins) to test various visual style in the game (snow and rain effects, menuing, no/low/medium/fast movement, splash effects, OoBs)

Thread title:  
wow, very challenging material for the encoder with the rain at the beginning.

this works fine as a source video. for sda you can use yua to make the final encodes. the default settings are fine so just open the video in yua and hit ctrl+e to start the encodes. i'm attaching a screenshot of what that looks like.
