I am a composer working for a sound and music for video games company. We really need to find a way to use the right encoding for our video captures. The thing is, our sound designers want to work in 60fps and it kind of makes sens when working with video games.
Now most of our sound design team are still work with Cubase 8.5 or 9 because H.264 works great at 60fps. The video engine switch in Cubase 9 our 9.5 can’t remember, was a disaster for them and I kind of agree.
For me, I’d be fine with 24fps but we need to find a standard render setting for 60fps that everyone in the company can use and we’d be glad to upgrade all the stations to Cubase 10.
We’ve tried the DNxHD extra licence and it works but file size are gigantesque and not an option since we have hours of gameplay of video captures we have to work with.
I have gone through the Steinberg recommended encoding settings for H.264 and all seems to be in order. I’m converting with XMedia Recode with all the B-Frames and P-Frames and frame interval suggested settings. I’m still not able to get a working 60fps H.264 playback in Cubase 10. No issue in Cubase 8, just saying.
His anyone successfully working with 60fps H.264 in Cubase 9.5 or 10.
If so, please share with us your encoding secrets!
