When I record in Action my videos look crisp and decent.
When I put them in Sony Vegas, I use the Movie Studio Platinum Version, and export, it looks just fine as well.
After uploading to youtube, it just becomes dull and not anywhere near crisp.
Heres a video of what I mean, skip ahead to the middle.
This is a video of RuneScape 2007.
None of my other youtube videos end up this way, which is weird.
Here is a video of another Youtuber, named B0aty who also does Rs2007 videos.
Notice how his videos, even at 480p looks insanely CRISP and clear.
the only way I can get mine to turn out this way is by turning on HD with the cog wheel, which I'm sure not many people manually do most of the time. So i would love my video to be as crisp and clear on 480.
