Hello all,
'
I've been a long time forum lurker and a 5760x1080 user for roughly 4 or 5 years ago.

Back in roughly 2012 I was at an Intel LANFest in Phoenix and participated in a Battlefield Bad Company 2 tourney. One of the users (who also won awards for his custom builds) was running in triple monitor and it blew my mind.
Roughly a year later I was running triple and never looked back.

Besides praising the triplewide love on a personal scale, I also run a business that provides casual and competitive video gaming services at events and have had the opportunity to show the love of triple monitor to the general public at big events with a racing setup running F1 20XX/BurnoutParadise/etc & a racing seat and steering wheel (Playseat & G27) as shown here:

I've also recently been recording three 1920x1080 60fps outputs and then putting them together and posting on YouTube for single monitor users to see an example of what 5760x1080 is like, and also for triple monitor users to see the game in full screen since YouTube is really limited in triple monitor content.

I started with Half Life 2.

Capturing each screen in 1920x1080 60fps via XSplit & Elgato HD60s wasn't difficult, but finding software that can output 5760x1080 is difficult.
Vegas only goes up to 4K on width (4096) and Premiere can do 5760, but the lack of support via codecs and my lack of video compression knowledge makes it difficult to output at settings that fit the YouTube max file size limit of 128GB without having videos that are only 5 minutes long.

Half Life 2 Triple Monitor Viewers 4096x768 30fps is on YouTube now and I'll be uploading in various parts with each chapter. I've gotta stay under 14 or so minutes per part to not hit the 128GB YouTube max.

The 1920x1080 versions i'll do in the same parts/chapters format to keep them as universal as possible.

Any suggestions or advice regarding video encoding/software etc is more than welcome. In my lurking I found some who record in 5760x1080 are using ShadowPlay & Fraps and unfortunately I don't have that type of hardware in 1 PC to do it properly in that fashion.

Either way, thanks to all the program creators, administrators, and those who pass off their WSG knowledge here. Keep it up.

Hi,
:welcome

Video Recording is an lasting issue... Newest GPUs support 4K encoding, which is 3840x2160 so far away from 5760 pixel width we need.
But if you use raw CPU power you can easily convert 5760x1080 from RAW to mjpg or via x264 into .mp4

Me I use MSI Afterburner and encode the video with MJPG. Best compromise between file size and gpu/CPU power needed.
After recording I convert the video into x264 Q18 for smaller file size.

Thanks for the welcome and info :-)

I suppose I could try using Premiere to output raw avi 5760x1080 and then convert, I'd have to do some studying up and perhaps testing for more personal knowledge for video codecs.
What program(s) do you use to convert and maintain the resolution?

Simple converting, Handbrake best x264 converter if you don't want to Edit the video.

Thanks again for the info. I'm learning. Yeah after reading your last message I did a bunch of research on codecs and have used Handbrake to convert about 3 or 4 videos x264 MP4 so far I plan on uploading to YT that were about 200GB each after rendering from video editor. Multiplayer BF4, Singleplayer GTAV, Multiplayer GTAV, and more HL2 are all coming along with so much more planned. :-)

I'd like to put some info in the descriptions for WSGF. Who's the boss man I gotta talk to get clearance?
