this test includes the video from mirillis being exported, however if the video is not exported its quality is increased almost double
So many may think I was originally hard on Mirillis, so I re did the test with a new game, and some new footage. My verdict, I still chose DXtory
but Mirillis help up alot better, I'll explain.
: Neither - So both of the software capped a video size of the same length with optimal performance, neither really had an advantage over the other however I have a pretty decent machine, Mirillis may work for others on a machine with less capability.
: Mirillis - While initially neither software capped a file size much different both capped a 6 min video at about 6gb. how Mirillis wins is because I was able to export the video which basically cut the file size to under 1gb and resulted in a smaller file in the end after I rendered it in Vegas.
: DXtory - The reason I pick DXtory for this is because it took less editing to get the video to look amazing, while Mirillis didn't need a bunch of extra stuff, i did need to make a few more tweaks to keep the video from looking washed out.
(before upload): Neither - No video really had an advantage, personally I like the render of the DXtory video a tad bit better but, the Mirillis render didnt look half bad, personally I still felt it was lacking in quality.
: DXtory - now while it may have taken a tad bit longer to upload the DXtory video because its file size was larger, it plays in good quality at 480p which the Mirillis video does not. if you were to put both clips to 1080p they may look almost identical, however its clear one is better than the other.
With that out the way, here is the new videos. you be the judge tell me which you liked better...
Both videos were capped in AVI format. Mirillis was exported MP4 High profile both rendered WMV format
