I thought everyone used dxtory nowadays, it's like fraps but better in every way. I don't think it has that feature that the OP wants though, my suggestion would be to buy an additional HDD just for recording and record all of your gameplay to it, and then cut the nice parts out of it.

I would love something that could record live to a temporary file (either in my RAM or maybe onto my SSD), and when I hit a pre-assigned key it dumps the video footage to a file on my hdd. Anyone know of something like this?

Thanks,
Shadow Hunter

fraps have that feature, i'm surprised that nobody knows about it, check this out.



if you enable this feature, what basically going to happen is fraps will keep on recording your gameplay, then overwrites the video after a predetermined time limit so that your drive won't gonna get filled up, if you hit the hot key then that video won't get overwritten, it will be saved as a separate video file instead, then another loop will start.

this is a cpu hog and will do lots of writes to your ssd.

not sure if it's what your looking for or how well it does since I didn't test it much but you can give it a go.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will look into it tongiht when i have more time.

Play Claw and FRAPS are hands down the best ones around (with the exception of Roxio's since I haven't tested that).

Here is my opinion of the two :

Playclaw :
-You will not take as big of a performance hit with a little tweaking.
-Converting the media files will make you want to strangle a kitten.

FRAPS :
-Cheap
-Easy to setup
-A breeze to convert the media files
-Significant hit to your performance, requires your to be beyond the games recomended requirements to get a decent resolution and fps capture.

If you have the power FRAPS is the way to go. The files will drop into any video editing software with no extra process where as PlayClaw uses a different format and is a nightmare to convert them to an accepted format.

As far as the "flashback" feature is concerned I don't know any software that does that but do expect to take a performance hit.

As I said earlier, the only software I am interested in would have to have a flashback feature. I have tried both PlayClaw and FRAPS with terrible results both ways compared to Bandicam. You can find my rig in my sig, but even on this machine both cause significant lag compared to Bandicam. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Any more ideas in the meantime?

Epic! I never knew this... I may have to give this a shot as well!

Thanks for the replies so far all, any more floating around out there?

What are you trying to record that FRAPS is causing massive lag? With my rig I am able to record 1080p WoW and LoL games at 60fps with barely any hit at all on my computer. I also have done recordings using AC 2 and Brotherhood. An i5 and gtx560 should be able to FRAPS just about any game out there given the right graphics setting and how you have FRAPS setup. What are you recording to? My performance sucked when I was trying to record to a 5400rpm drive lol.

Well I suppose I should be more exact... I call lag anything that doesn't seem smooth... xD so when I am playing Borderlands 2 for example and I start up fraps, I notice it begins to jitter all the time and doesn't run very smooth but when I turn it off its smooth as butter. I am recording from my second drive (Samsung Spinpoint F3) to my third drive (WD Caviar Blue) both of which are 7200rpm drives. Also Fraps spits out MASSIVE files xD But I am now looking into streaming so I have no idea what I am doing xD

I am not 100% either, but I wanted software not hardware. If I was to buy hardware I would get the 'Elgato Game Capture HD', as it is not only cheaper, but I know for a fact it does exactly what I want.

Any more input here, or am I doomed to hardware only recording solutions (that imo are far too expensive xD)?
it also is a video capture as well as screenshot recorder look under settings and video capture

Open Broadcaster is the best of the best right now, it works just as good as X-Split but it is free and open source. It gives the best video recording quality for local recording and you could also stream with it if you wanted to as well. I stopped using all the other recording software once I got my hands on this.
