Recommended Settings for Editing Videos

Parsec for Teams makes video editing remotely easy. Editors need a seamless experience, with perfect graphics, precise inputs, and a stable connection. We’ve got the settings that’ll be perfect for your work.

Constant FPS Mode
Recommended Setting: Off

Fix the frame rate of a stream (usually 60FPS). Static screens, images, and documents maintain crisp details even when they aren’t in motion.

Video editors using Parsec should plan to have Constant FPS disabled when watching a video, but you can turn it on when you're working in your editing tools or on a second screen. If this is on, your video stream will be set at 60 FPS, so if you're playing a video that is less than 60 FPS, turn this off.

4:4:4 Color Mode
Recommended Setting: On

Removes color subsampling from your stream to improve color fidelity across the board. It's great for precise colors, but it will add a little latency.

It’s only available on Nvidia hosts running GTX 900/1000 and RTX 2000 and their respective Quadra cards.
*Note: 4:4:4 Color Mode works best when using the H.265 codec. Be sure to select “Prefer H.265” in the codec menu for optimal performance.

Bandwidth Limit
Recommended Setting: 25Mbps

Adjusting bandwidth is one of the best ways to increase video fidelity. Parsec defaults to 10Mbps, but with speedy internet, adjusting up to 25-30Mbps can help quite a bit. You can also reduce your bandwidth usage by selecting H.265 as your preferred codec.

Frame Rate Setting
Recommended Setting: 60FPS, but it's Adjustable up to 240FPS

Adjust frame rate directly in “Host Settings”, all the way up to 240FPS. Setting this will set the max frame rate Parsec will capture.

Approved Apps
Recommended Setting: Use it if you're inviting guests to join your computer

In Settings, manage what apps are accessible to connected testers. Perfect when testing a single game or protecting something confidential.
