    The color is wrong with MP4 but ok with WebM. Maybe there's a problem with the color space (I'm using gamma).
    Also, when using MP4 with the highest preset there are still lots of compression artifacts.
    What can I do to fix both problems?

    It may be fixed in Unity 2019, but Unity 2018 LTS should work given that it's a stable version with long term support. I can't update to a new version due to stability reasons.

    Hi @BATTLEKOT,

    Sorry to read that you are having issue with the unity recorder:
    Here On windows 10, I tested recording a movie from the timeline using unity 2019.2.5f1 and the unity recorder 2.0.3-preview.1 without problems.

    In order to help us investigate the issue you are having could you answer the following questions:

    Which unity version are you using and which version of the unity recorder package?
    Your screenshots seems to indicates that you were using unity 2109.2.5?
    On which platform? Windows/OSx/Linux which os version?
    In the project settings/Player/Other Settings what is the Rendering Color Space* (Linear or Gamma)
    Which rendering pipeline are you using Legacy or one the scriptable render pipeline?
    Can you provide us your manifest.json file.

    Finally if you could you provide a small project that can reproduce this problem it would be very helpful.

    Regards,
    Jean

    Hey, thanks for reply. Look like its fixed in new 2019.2 versions.
    But legacy render not working for me...
    Im really would like to ability render mp4 with hinger bitrate, cuz im produce videos with audio for marketing and for get better quality I need render picture by picture that take longer time.
    But have feature like "ultrahing" quality after "hing" would be great for my company =)

    Hi @BATTLEKOT,

    I can confirm that you have found a bug with the legacy mp4 recorder in unity 2019.2.6f1, for reference I opened a bug in our internal database FTV-301, thanks for reporting it.

    Also we understand the need for better quality video encoding, this is something high on our priority. For the time being I suggest doing an image sequence and separate audio recorder. You can then encode the video/audio using an external tool. Of course this is not as convenient and it involves many steps, but this is how you can achieve better quality.

    Regards,

    Jean

    Hi - I have a bug report to file. When playing my scene with the package as an asset, Unity crashes with the following stacktrace. This occurs on MacOS 10.14.1 but not occur on 10.13.x w/ Unity versions 2018.3.6 - 2018.4.9 and the latest release of Unity Recorder (version 1.0.2).

    If I remove the UnityRecorder asset package, the player doesn't crash, so pretty sure it's due to this library. Happy to provide other info.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '*** -[AVAssetWriterInputPixelBufferAdaptor appendPixelBuffer:withPresentationTime:] invalid parameter not satisfying: CMTIME_IS_NUMERIC(presentationTime)'

    Hi chafik_unity, DominiqueLrx,marief_unity There is an issue since the unity recorder is created.When using bloom postprocessing effect it always have issue show in the image you can look at #307 #319 #371 #373 issues all have similar kind of problem. Should we expect any solution there or it will remain as it is forever?
    Edit:- #384 have same issue

    Hi, it's will be very helpful if we can toggle on whether show the mouse cursor or not in the Recorder Editor window

    Hello. I record videos on a timeline using a recorder (WebM and MP4).
    But in scenes with fast movements, the picture breaks up into large pixels.
    Is there any way to avoid this problem?
