  • If you want to get the original video quality, please try the "Lagarith lossless codec" instead of "Motion JPEG".
  • If you can't edit videos with the "Motion JPEG and PCM" codecs, please check the Two Sound Mixing option.
  • If you have an audio sync issue with the "Motion JPEG and PCM" codecs, reduce the video resolution of the recording target and reduce the video size, FPS and video quality of Bandicam.

  • Even if you choose the "Prefer CFR" option, the video will automatically be saved as VFR if the encoder's performance is not good enough. To edit a VFR video, you have to convert the VFR video to CFR.
  • To convert VFR to CFR, download Bandicut -> Open a VFR video -> Click the "Encoding Settings" and then select the FPS value. If you select 30 FPS, you will get a 30-FPS CFR video.
