    I figured it out. The aspect ratio in WLMM had changed from 16:9 to 4:3. Just go into Project and change it. Doh wish I'd checked it earlier.

    I use Sony Vegas Pro.
    Another good one is Adobe Premier.

    Both are very straight forward and easy to use, but you can do very advanced stuff with both as well!

    I use fraps lossless mode @ 30 fps. For encoding I use the following settings:

    x264 encoder: cabac=1 / ref=4 / deblock=1:-1:-1 / analyse=0x3:0x113 / me=tesa / subme=6 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=2 / 8x8dct=1 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=12 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=3 / b_pyramid=0 / b_adapt=1 / b_bias=0 / direct=3 / weightb=1 / open_gop=0 / weightp=2 / keyint=250 / keyint_min=25 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=30 / rc=crf / mbtree=0 / crf=19.0* / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=10 / qpmax=51 / qpstep=4 / vbv_maxrate=50000 / vbv_bufsize=40000 / crf_max=0.0 / nal_hrd=none / ip_ratio=1.40 / pb_ratio=1.30 / aq=2:1.00

    *usually between 19 and 21. Overkill, I know, but at least it gives more than enough work for all 8 threads. And of course, the quality is awesome - before YouTube ruins it.

    NeroAAC: -q 0.84

    VirtualDub, AviSynth scripts and Audacity does the job for me. No fancy visual effect, though.

    After paying for and using fraps for years I decided to give afterburners recorder a go and damn am I impressed. I was still hitting 40fps while recording which would never be possible when using fraps.

    I think I may stick with it and do all my videos with it from now on. Thanks for the recommendation! :banana::D

    ive been messing around with that recorder since last night. what im trying to do is find an encoder that will shrink the size but still let me keep some quality. one of my files is like 800mb and its only a 2min 40sec clip.

    Fraps gives me pretty decent frame rate even in lossless mode, with unlocked frame rate even F1 2010 is playable while recording.

    The settings I posted have worked out for me.
    It's the best quality/size ratio I've tried, 8bit to 32bit is barely noticeable, everything from 4500-5000 kbps up just increases the file size with barely noticeable quality increase, the x264 codec seems best from xvid/divx, vmw etc. (I've tested a few common ones).
    1minute of 1080p@30 video with these settings is only around 35-40mb, which is really low in my opinion, and the quality is pretty awesome like you saw in my video. (Youtube conversions also lower the quality, the raw rendered video is slightly better)

    Personally I use fraps to record, if possible I record demos or replays of my game play, this way I can play first, and record later, so there's not impact in gaming performance. If it's not possible, well I never really had any problems with fraps, I like it because it's lossless, the quality is just 1A.

    i have fraps already. ill give that a shot too. im all for trying out other programs. now, after your videos are recorded, what encoder software do you use before you upload your videos to youtube.

    Here's my second Fable III video (captured with Afterburner) at high settings.

    http://youtu.be/d90b97LPTTM

    Not bad considering Fable III is said to require 4GB memory. Which I'm a long way off having. :D

    not bad at all. how do you have your frame size set in afterburner. half size or full size?
