Don't use fraps. Record demos of your games by putting "record demoname" in console. Type stop to end the recording. Put the tick of the good frags into a text file. If you're recording matches with tournament mode, pov-record is a useful tool. It automatically records demos and puts killstreaks into a text file. You can also bookmark areas.
After you get all your demos, record it into .tga files with the built in source recorder. Start the recording by typing startmovie x. Stop it by typing endmovie.
Another method (which is better) is to use something like the Lawena recording tool
. It automatically switches your config to Chris' maxquality, and has a bunch of other tweaks and options(huds, recording framerate, etc).
After you get your .tga's, use virtualdub
to compile it into lagarith lossless. Set the fps to match the audio duration.
edit the lossless file in whatever program you use, then render it into another lagarith lossless .avi
Once you get that file, use megui
to encode it into a .mp4.
There are more in-depth guides out there, but this is the general method most moviemakers use.
tl;dr: don't use fraps, you end up with a bunch of useless footage and wasted space, and it kills fps. Record demos of your games and get your footage with the source recorder.Edited by /Fail - 7/18/11 at 12:41pm
