How To: How do i record CoD4 Gameplay

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
How do i record CoD4 Game-play?

Using programs such as FRAPS, xFire or Game Cam makes my FPS drop significantly. I currently use the in-game command /record to record and then attempt to record it again but it still drops my FPS so much it is unwatchable and useless. Is there a way round this?

My Setup: http://www.xfire.com/profile/dutybound/ (Scroll to Bottom)
I have bought another HDD of the same make and size (Totals 620gb)

Buy a video capture card that uses its own resources, not the resources of your machine to capture video. They can be found for between $100-$200 all the way up to $700 for the very feature rich ones.

Thank you. But, rather than going straight out to but such product, i would rather try other options first, like a cfg with graphic setting and "Shizz" that would be 10x better.

Anyone else got any help?

MSI Afterburner can record gameplay; you might try it.

If you were to buy hardware you should probably upgrade your processor. You would want at least a quad core to record while playing.

I have used Fraps/Dxtory and a number of other different recording programs and I don't lag while recording 1920x1080 60fps.

What are your specs?

What I would do would be to record the game using the console command /record. Then I would play the game back and record it with something like fraps or MSI Afterburner.

first set the fraps output folder in the new hdd so the game is on one and the video file is writen on the other.

on the movie tab select "60fps" and "half size"

try the hdd and 60fps first, if still laggy go half size.

Try recording the video to a different hard drive.
