Well, that's my question, hope there's a solution, I want to record a walkthrough, but better with scanlines Wink

No, that is not supported with the internal recording command. You would need an external recorder to achieve this.

You can capture it with OBS Studio.

I wonder whether such scanlines will survive youtube codecs... Hannibal

Hi wolf_:
I hope so, at least I can try. So let's have a look at that OBS Studio, thank you thalin.

I think in this case it's upscaling that will butcher video quality. But please, try it out and see if it works for you. And please let us know how it turned out. Wink

For my YouTube retro gaming videos i always upscale to 1280x960 or so to avoid compression artifacts. I haven't tried with artificial scanlines though. I use Kdenlive for editing and rendering. You find my MSX videos here Wink

openMSX can output at 1280x960, so no need to upscale that.

I made a test with OBS and could capture the scanlines (20%) in openMSX (great, did it!). Thanks everybody...
Thalin, have known kdenlive for a long time, time I polish my skills at editing video if I want to record a great video with MSX game...
