I’ve been experimenting with different video capture formats for my Game Boy World videos and would like some feedback on which you, the consumer eyeball, would prefer.
Unfortunately there is no single perfect solution. I like capturing GB games with the Super Game Boy frame and, when available, preset color palettes; but the only means I have of using SGB is on systems that only output lower-grade video (composite or S-Video). The RetroN outputs via HDMI, but it doesn’t read games inserted in the Super Game Boy, recognizing only the SGB itself. So, please, compare the two formats and let me know which I should go with:
Do I capture from RetroN 5 and get clean video without any of the SGB embellishments? As such:
Or do I go with the lower-grade capture solution that allows the full potential effect of games to be displayed, but with rougher and more artifacted video quality? As such:
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated!
On a Game Boy World-related note, I have a long-term, paid freelance project available for anyone capable of capturing high-quality Lynx video. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are such a person and would like some American dollars. Thanks!
