Recording Commentary with Fraps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I usually record commentary while making videos, but I would like to have full control over my in-game music and microphone audio, which I cannot do if both game audio and microphone audio are one file.

I was wondering if I should use another program solely for recording microphone audio and let Fraps handle the in-game audio. I've been told to record gameplay first and then put commentary over it using Adobe Premiere, but I would rather record myself in realtime rather then just dub over it.

So is there anyway of doing this?

I don't see why you couldn't use any audio recording software running in the background while running the game and recording the video with fraps. Would just have to add the audio track to the video with a video editing program after.

This. You can fine tune the volume like this, instead of trial and error.

Before Fraps could record from both sources, I did this with Audacity. It's not too hard. First, what I tend to do is before I'm actually recording something I'm going to edit together, have a "synchronized action". For instance, say the word "pop" into the microphone at the same moment that you move the mouse across the menu screen; just so you know where to attach the audio while editing.
