Im working on a paper for my university and need capturings of the same scene in different native resolutions. Im currently using the Logitech BRIO camera with OBS for capturing.

My question is: If I change the resolution of the camera in OBS, does this result in native recordings in that resolution or is the resolution only changed in software?

I know that it could depend on the implementation from OBS but is it even possible to get different native resolution from the same CCD-Sensor in theory? I couldn't find any information about how changing the resolution is actually done.

  • I don't know anything about the camera you mentioned, but certainly higher end cameras shoot different resolutions. They often do this by cropping the sensor, but also by "pixel-binning", where adjacent pixels are averaged – stib Aug 5 at 4:23
