Game Recording Software

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

What's the best?

So in short, what do you think is the best game recording software? I had been using fraps, but since I reformatted it lags my computer to absolute hell. I'd be looking to record mainly source games, but also some other random ones. Info about why fraps is being retarded is also appreciated.

    My Fraps is working pretty good both in games and des- that won't help you in any way. Back then when I had still Win XP, I used Camtasia Studio to record desktop but for games tbh, I dunno how well it worked, lol. Completely forgot whether I used it for recording games... eh.

    MSI Afterburner, it's an awesome software which allow you to compress the video in realtime with not so much performance impact while recording. I used it on BF3 and it works perfectly.

    Playclaw, never had any performance drop in-game recording full-size uncompressed or at max compression. Been using it for quite a few years now since fraps was -- and may still be -- a POS that loved to chug along like a certain little train engine; newest beta software has nifty features to boot.

    > **Posted by IppE** > Only problems I've had with fraps are hard drive write speed bottlenecks at 1080p60 :V I'm using an external SSD. Fraps worked fine before I reformatted my computer a couple of days ago; probably driver/directX issue. Either way, seems to record fine at 1280 x 720 (50+ fps). At my normal resolution or anything higher than 1280 x720 it caps out at 19 fps; no matter what the resolution.

    Hard to beat Fraps, as long as you're recording to a seperate drive. (drive, different partition is not enough for obvious reasons.)
