I'm trying to record video previews for RB3. I'm using the Dolphin Wii emulator, and I've finally figured it all out and get it set up and everything. My problem is that it jitters throughout the song. It's so close to playing fine, but it just doesn't.

What settings are you all using? As of now, I make it full screen (1920x1020; can't get it to go completely full screen for 1080p). I record using Windows 10 game. Concentration Mode is not on, because I want to record the venue stuff. I have Dolphin Graphics set up to 720p. It works better than 1080p, maybe, but the problem persists. Let me know what other info you need.

Any suggestions?

By the way, this PS3 emulator, RPCS3, looks really promising: https://www.youtube....h?v=ufPY3nImY40

 

The video, dated April 25, 2020: "New Guitar support for Rock Band 3 is here! Jump in and play some guitar and vocals in RPCS3! Now we wait for Pro Drums support and i'm not going back to Dolphin. (Drums are still not working yet)"

Maybe with some time, we can get codes similar to gecko codes for Dolphin, to autoplay and all that...

Are you using the Dump Frames option in Dolphin or using other software to capture the screen?

 

My PC is not that powerful so I use the Dump Frames option. Then I use the rendered audio from Reaper and put the two things together in a simple video editor.

Ah, I didn't know about that feature. I was using the Windows 10 game recording. Thanks!

This worked much better. Even if it dips to really slow when dumping frames, when I play back the .avi file, the video is the correct speed and so is the dumped audio. No jittering. This is the way to go!

What bitrate do you use? I'm dumping at internal resolution (which is higher than 1080p, for some reason), and it was set at 25000kbps bitrate, but I felt like the video was very pixelated. I tried 50000kbps, and that's definitely better, but still a little pixelated. (When I checked the Lossless codec option, the gameplay slowed down to a crawl, and then the dumped video wouldn't play back in VLC anyway and the file was huge...though the frames didn't look pixelated. So I'm keeping that unchecked.)

EDIT: 75,000kbps looked alright to me, I guess. Thanks again!
EDIT 2: I bumped it up to 100,000kbps when I recorded some songs that also had keys. The 75,000kbps looked too pixelated to me for those.

Pro drums on dolphin works totally fine, you just need a Wii MIDI adapter.

Yeah, I did manage to record and post non-jittery Dolphin footage by taking doa's suggestion above and using Dump Frames/Dump Audio.

That quote was about a PS3 emulator that hasn't gotten the drums working yet. Moot point, since I got Dolphin to stop jittering for my preview recordings by using Dump Frames. :)
