How would i record Oculus gameplay, but make it normal for a youtube video? I wanna start a oculus rift series on my channel but I know without the Rift the 2 images looks kinda boring for some people 😛
Stretching the video 200% horizontally is pretty ugly. Very bad practice. If you have After Effects you can remove (or reduce) the lens distortion with the "optics compensation"-filter. Then you can put the undistorted video side-by-side to your webcam-video and other information.
Why not just show one of the two images and crop it to 16:9 without changing its aspect ratio? You'll lose a chunk of the image at the top and the bottom this way, but it should still work. When you play the games you want to play at a higher resolution than the Rifts native res while recording you should get a video with a high enough safety margin resolution wise to allow this.
Actually now you can use D3DGear game recording software to record Oculus Rift games. D3DGear is capable to recording Oculus Rift games to stunning HD SBS stereoscopies movie natively. D3DGear also allows to stream broadcast Oculus Rift games and measure Oculus Rift games rendering frame rate in headset.
