For years i have been using fraps, thought fraps was the best recording software since slice bread
But anyways, just tested out MSI afterburner recording program and its a freaking 10/10, recording fullscreen 1280x720, no lag or anything. Just a beautiful program
Bye bye fraps, you have been good to me.

I will post a video later.

I'd have to agree, the recording portion of Afterburner is outstanding.

This is a recording with a small amount of compression -

Just stick with fraps, its really the best recording software ever.

I have no problems with framerate hit i expect it the way i have it set up.
Just play with the settings abit and this recording software will rival others that you have to pay for.

People tending to jump into 100% opposite conclusions (freaking 10/10 -> horrible and vice versa) normally need to learn configuring their systems proroperly. PEBCAK.

I get same quality with DXTory, but an hours worth of recording at a fraction of size, which is important if your uploading said file, day in and out

2Gb per hour, instead of 20Gb+, yup

That's because your CPU architecture is so old it can't handle on the fly encoding and playing a game at the same time. Fraps might not use as much CPU because it's dumping it RAW, which means much bigger file sizes, to your hard drives. There, your HD speeds become the bottleneck. You need to test recording at 30fps and lessening the compression to get it right for your slower CPU.

In my opinion afterburner is miles ahead of fraps. I can record with ZERO fps drop in game, almost gamelike video quality and 75% lower filesize than fraps.
I use 100% quality, full frame and 60 fps, everything else unchecked/auto. Video format VFW x264vfw (separate downloaded codec) with ratefactor set to 20.

The only problem I got is that Sony movie studio cannot handle those files, so I have to take them through Avidemux or Handbrake first if I want to make a movie of the videos.

Who even cares about that when one has to actually 'convert' it to actually share it.

I'd rather spend 2 mins converting, than 2 hours extra uploading a large file size

DXTory has AVIMux built in:



MAX 30fps is all one needs for recording:



x264vfw codec and set your res/scaling.



CRF of 18 and zero latency ensures great quality, very small file size, and no lag in game This gives roughly an hours worth at a MAX size of 2Gb.

Fraps gives me the same, but sizes of 20Gb+ for same quality, along with laggy performance.

No-brainer really.

People who have limited disc space should first try to solve that particular issue instead of trying to record gameplay videos. lol

scaramoanga, yeah. When I will build a dual xeon based PC, I will turn on real time compression.

ha.

Same problem here and I searched a lot for a solution. As an FYI Unwinder gave a good explanation about this.

I'm using RTV1 now and I'm satisfied with the performance and quality since the improvements in 2.3.0. I do like to tinker though and may try x264vfw with Avidemux and / or Handbrake for kicks since you mentioned them.

you have problems ~.~ Try recording in 5760*1080 pixel! 30sec RTV1 results in 2.3GB MJPG in 85% only 650mb! Don't even start to think about uncompressed!
But hey, Why should i record in lower quality? If i set to 4096*736 (keep aspect ratio) and watch it on my 3 screen it looks horrible! But thats the Maximum resolution Youtube supports!
So, i keep recording in MJPG, convert to h264 via meGui and then Upload it to Youtube Full quality always at hand!
This Video is 1.7gb the Original was 31GB!

Lucky i have a 3TB hdd.

Afterburner is still one of the few programms that can keep up the recording Performance at such a resolution!

So I should spend money on a bigger hard drive just to use fraps, when afterburner is doing the same job?
Makes sense..
