My question here is a redirection per suggestion of my original question over here
I have an i5 4th gen CPU which can support 2k displays and output 2k signal. And I have an AMD Radeon R7 graphics card. I have an old monitor whose native resolution is 1366x768
My problem is that with the hardware configuration I have, when I record my screen on OBS Studio with settings as chosen by the OBS Auto Configuration Wizard, I get a totally disappointing output. The text is not clear and nothing looks sharp when viewed on any other monitor than my own.
I wish to do some screen records of some coding sessions, and with the quality of output I have, it's not an option. People advice me to get a Mac which can give me 4k recordings hassle free, but Mac is out of my budget.
Xrandr seems to be of no help either.
I want to explore all software based solutions before I buy anything. In particular, I am looking at the possibility to "trick" the CPU into thinking there is a another1080p/2k monitor connected and make it output a higher resolution signal and then capture it in some sort of a screen record. Is such a thing possible? If yes, how?
I want to utilize my CPU and GPU capacity to the fullest and produce 1080p/2k quality videos. What are my options?
I am on an Ubuntu 19.10 machine
Any leads are appreciated. Thank you in advance.
