I hate Fraps, can't produce edited video with Fraps footage

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
So I Fraps'd about 25 minutes of WoW gameplay yesterday. I brought it all into Camtasia Studio 7 and set it all up, got music in it, etc. I produced it as an MP4, walked away to take a shower, came back and it was finished. So I uploaded it to YouTube. It took like an hour. After it finished processing I went to watch it and instead of being 25 minutes long it was 3 minutes and 17 seconds.

So I tried watching the video I produced in Windows Media Player, and at 3 minutes and 17 seconds the video freezes but the audio continues to play.

I tried re-rendering it again, it gets to about 12% and then it'll skip right to 100% and finish rendering. I watched the playback of the rendered footage, same thing. Odd thing is, if I watch the RAW Fraps footage in the Fraps:/Movies folder it's perfect playback.

I really want to render this footage, but I am having lots of issues. Anyone have any advice?

(The original file format of the Fraps movies is .AVI. I produced the footage as a .MP4).

Wow, your using Camtasia to edit videos?? Use Sony Vegas! With proper rendering functions. You can also change the file format that fraps records in if im not mistaken.

Your end result was in MP4 or did you render it to mp4 then produced it?

If your end result was in Mp4 I'd Suggest bringing the Original to MP4 first then produce it.

also what other software are you using?

I don't have a legal copy of Sony Vegas, and I am not illegally downloading it.

The original files in Fraps:/Movies are .AVI files. After producing the video the file format was .MP4. I haven't tried keeping the format .AVI and producing it.

And Camtasia Studio is the only software I am using to produce the video.

Is the movie file bigger than 5gb?

Why do you presume i was intending you to download illegal software? Movie maker renders movie's better than Camtasia. The only good thing that it is good at is screen capture. Also, if your uploading to Youtube render in WMV.

I'm not sure, since it never produced correctly and I deleted the produced video. However, there's a total of 32 clips in the Fraps folder. Each of those clips is less than 60 seconds, and each video's size is about 3.98GBs, MINUS the final 32nd clip which is 896MBs.

I don't know, not too many people have $600 laying around. Sorry if I came off the wrong way. Just tried producing a test clip as a WMV, it ended up coming out nice. I'll try producing the entire thing as a WMV later.

I had a problem like this twice. Video stoped but sound kept going. I closed fraps and the video reproduced fine. I'm almost certain this is not your problem.
Have you tried rendering any other files? Maybe try rendering only the file where the video stops.

Maybe this might help.

Open the CMD and type "sfc scannow"
Maybe there's something wrong with some system files.

Good luck!

BTW, How do you like your rig? I'm upgrading my rig to one just like ours. Exactly. Maybe a SSD with HDD. But every other hardware is gonna be the same. Anything you would change? Thanks

I just did that to test and see how WMV would come out, it played back fine. I'm going to put together the whole thing quickly and render it as I eat. I'll see what happens.
