Behind-the-Scenes: Testing Minecraft on a MacBook Pro - ITS Gaming

A behind-the-scenes look at Michael doing a recording test of Steve's Minecraft profile on the MacBook Pro. It seems to have been a success!

Our recording setup on a MacBook Pro 13 Inch from 2012:
OBS Studio:

We use OBS Studio for recording, using full display capture. The MacBook Pro has a native resolution of 1280x800. This resolution can cause problems in editing because of its non-standard aspect ratio. Fortunately, the newer MacOS is capable of forcing the resolution to 720p. You can configure this by going to "System Preferences" then "Displays". Hold down the "Option" key and click on "Scaled". This will unlock more resolutions in the list, including 720p.

Next we have the problem of getting the game's audio to both OBS Studio and the player's headphones. We do this with the help of SoundFlower and a "multi-output device". You can create multi-output devices in the "AudioMIDI Setup" utility. This device will take whatever audio it receives and send it to two or more other devices. We configure it to output to both the player's headphones and Soundflower. We then configure OBS Studio to record audio from Soundflower. Next the multi-output device is set as the system default and both the player and OBS Studio can hear the game!

Because we play multiplayer games, we also need to be able to communicate with each other. For this, we use Discord. Discord is a light-weight and easy to use Voice-over-IP and chatroom application. It was designed with gamers in mind and does its job well.
