I have done a video. (with FRAPS) My computer is pretty good. 1024 MB Ram, Intel Pentium 4CPU 3.40GHz, |512MB x1950xtx graphic card| Watch this video to know what my problem is. ( the video is just a short example) It is still laggy if i record with fraps. ( i play rainbow six Vegas with 1280*1024 and all details high ) I know there is an other programm (gamerecorder) but it is the same crap like FRAPS. what can i do to record videos without that lags? PLEASE HELP!

    Also, you don't really have that much ram and the cpu isn't all that(seriously, Pentium 4). Even if it is clocked very high, it's still an old architecture one and therefore not the best for demanding apps like today's games.

    Edit: also, LOL @ german voice acting. Man, you guys dub everything...

    Alright, this is what you do. Record it at 30 fps, and at a low resolution. Maybe 800x600 or preferably less. It will look good. :P

    if it encoded/compressed the footage in real-time while you are recording, then you would get like less than 10 frames a second, even on the most awesome of machines.

    Is this the reason why you have comment level 1?
    Flaming people because of a small mistake.
    Edit: Not a "small" one, but still, you don't have to flame him...


    Common sense would have said to know what he's even talking about. So i gave him what for. Oh no! It's 44 minutes old! Sorry to bump.... :p

    My post got removed for saying that, but its ok. Well something at lest to say, try to change your fps settings in fraps, get the latest version. For me worked that I changed the recording fps, tried out all and some own fps settings.

    Im also using fraps to record my stuff but its not that laggy lol

    heres a video of splinter cell double agent i think it has the same system spec.

    *edit*

    im using the lowest resolution and half size AND 50 fps



    well i think its running really smooth, maybe its because im using a dualcore and not singlecore^^

    oh and how did you record the sound THAT loud???

    I hate Fraps, if you're not registered, because I don't want to pay for something that I can do for free and it only gives you 30 seconds?

    EDIT:
    Not worth a bump if you're only going to say that.
    I want it painted black
