Super Poor Quality In "Movie Mode"

Greetings,

I have a Canon Rebel T6i that I use for live streaming. The camera is attached to a mini hdmi cable which is attached to an elgato cam link. The quality of the feed is perfect when in "manual mode" in the "on" position. However, when I switch over to "Movie Mode" (or the setting above 'on' with the picture of the video camera') I get a weird blocky video quality (see attached picture). Thanks for the help!Capture.JPG

This appears to be interlacing artifacts.  Only thing I can recommend is to ensure that your video capture device is set to use the video signal as being output by the camera.  Check frame-rates and whether or not interlacing modes are being used.

Do you know how to check the frame rates and to check whether or not interlacing modes are being used? Thanks for the help!

You'll want to check the manual of your camera.  Then also the settings you have on the camera or capturing movies. Just a guess, but the frame-rate would most likely be 29.97 (possibly rounded up in the camera's display as 30).  Indicators such as 1080i (suffix with 'i') would indicate interlace mode.   There should be a table somewhere in the manual stating just what are the possible output signals over HDMI.
