Dxtory is great, but the fact that I have to take my RAWcap and then render it on 2-passes in H264 is very time consuming. My only hopes is that this 20-minute limit is adjustable.

20 minute time limit is not going to cut it though.

They are handy for archival purposes, but I most definitely transcode them before sending them anywhere.
Should be configurable, there is even an option to trigger manual recording, so no worries there.
Seems like a great feature that many people who don't use FRAPS will start taking advantage of, I was wondering if Valve would ever implement such a feature into Steam, but now that Nvidia is doing it, there's no need. AMD should follow suit, the HD 7000 series also has an H.264 video encoder if I'm not mistaken.
As to bloat, since ShadowPlay will be part of the GeForce Experience software package, I presume, unless they change something in between, that you'll need to have Net. Framework 4 installed. I just installed the latest WHQL driver and if you unselect Net. Framework, GeForce Experience will automatically be unselected too.Edited by tpi2007 - 5/24/13 at 6:57am
