Well, I've been having one heck of a hard time trying to record gameplay from Counter-Strike Source. Everything I try ends up extremly laggy (which doesn't look that cool in movies). I've tried Fraps, Fast Cap Pro, and the Steam method (getting thousands of screenshots and converting them all into a single AVI). Is there any way to get a CLEAN recording of gameplay? I've seen a couple people with [DivX] in the corner of their demos, would this be a way to record it? If so, how? I'm sorry, I'm just really lost at the moment and I would appreciate any input. Thank you for your time.

    If you get the full version of fraps it works perfect(for me at least).

    Record a demo, then use fraps when playing back the demo. Done. perfect frames. don't use fraps while trying to play the game, never works.

    Yeah, I've done that. In some areas it's fine, but in others is hardly moves.

    Even when it moves at all, it still has that laggy feeling, it's nothing compared to my CS demos, they we're so clean.

    DivX doesn't have that ability. And the watermark is created by the free-trial version.

    Sounds like your computer isn't powerful enough to handle both things at once.

    Could it possibly be my computer? I'm planning to get a new one in June, I guess I should report back here about this then.

    Gameplay is great, but recording isn't.

    Judo: Yeah, I think that's it. I guess I'll just have to wait.
