***EDITED FRAPS questions.*** Bandicam.

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
Ok so this is edited.

I made a new thread before realising I could just edit this one doh.gif

Here is the link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1183257/bandicam/0_100#post_15923876 (it would be good if you could reply in this thread and maybe a moderator can delete this one).

I have now decided to get Bandicam.

Could owners of Bandicam give me some pros and cons about the software? Also any issues you have.

Thanks everyone for your time and contribution.

1) Yes.
B) Yes.
III) It records at whatever resolution you're playing at, or half that size depending on what you choose. But yes, if you play at 1080p, it will record at 1080p.
4. Yes. Get VLC. It's time you dumped WMP.

That being said, I suggest you buy DXTory instead of FRAPs.

1) Yes
2) Yes, it uses a registration code thing that you just put in when you download or install it (don't remember which)
3) Yes
4) I believe the standard files open with WMP, but you'll want to compress them as the raw files are uncompressed and are like 4GB per 2 minutes at 1080p. Badaboom is great if you use an nVidia video card, iunno what alternatives there are for AMD cards, and VirtualDub is free/open source and works pretty well.

I have a list of questions that I need to ask before buying FRAPS.
1) Can it record the gameplay, the games audio and and your own microphones audio at the same time?
2) Can I buy it from dads PC, but install it on my own PC (since my dad will not do the PayPal transaction on my PC)?
3) Does it record in 1080p?
4) Do I need a different media player than Windows Media Player (I don't really want to get a different media player?
Thanks you all so much for your time reading and hopefully answering my questions.

1) Yes, key customization is available for all functions as well as for the mic source.
2) Will need a separate license
3) Yes and higher
4) No,output files are in raw .avi format.

also while you are recording make sure you record to a second HDD it will run alot smoother

He shouldn't need a separate license. I have the same licensed copy of Fraps on my desktop, and laptop. And it was bought by my ex girlfriend over 8 years ago.

WOW! I got so many replies so fast! Thanks everyone!

Ok, about question 4 (and I am now glad I asked), what FREE, LEGITIMATE media player should I get? Is VLC free?

Also you guys are recommending other programs besides FRAPS, are there really better programs?

I will have a GTX 580, which is NVIDIA based.

I would recommend VLC, it's a great versatile media player. And since you will be recording with Fraps, I would recommend getting Handbrake to use your gpu to help you encode your files. thumb.gif

One quick thing, if I install FRAPS to my boot drive (60GB SSD), can I recored the movies to a separate HDD?

Basically put:

SSD = FRAPS

HDD = FRAPS recordings

Thanks!
