How To Record Your Fights with FREE OBS Studio

The practice of recording and then watching your fights allows you to identify mistakes, missed opportunities, and see things you missed during the actual fight. As a result you are able to improve much faster.

Back in 2014 I did a article and video about this concept where you showed you how to setup Open Broadcaster Software or OBS for short. But a few days ago it came to my attention that OBS is moving from it's old 'Classic' software to a new and shinier OBS Studio.

Setting this type of thing up can be difficult if you don't have much experience with Video Settings, Codecs, Drivers, etc, so I decided to make a updated Setup Video for the new OBS Studio.

This video will show you exactly how to setup your OBS Studio to record EVE at VERY high quality and most likely with almost no CPU strain (you can put the load on your GPU).

Once you start watching your fights, I guarantee you will see your PVP improving.

Also, if you have some questions or want to share your footage with me, you can send it to my email address (same one you get email from about this website) or post in a comment here. I may do a Critique on your footage and post it publicly (with you permission of course) to help other players.
