Video captureing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure if this is right forum for this question, but I am wanting to video capture my video game play. I see people doing video game reviews and Let's Plays, and I am wondering what is the best way to record a game?

I have Replay Video Capture6, It can record small areas of my screen pretty accurately. But when trying to go full screen and capture at 1920x1080, The software defaults to 10 frames per second. Obviously this is going to look like crap for video games.

So I was wondering, is it just a matter of finding better capture software? Or is what I am looking for hardware based?
I was thinking maybe there are video cards that can capture the monitor. Like maybe running a video card out to the monitor, and then from the monitor into some sort of capture card?

Again, I'm looking to capture sound and video at 1920x1080 at 30 FPS or higher, with the clearest possible picture.

I have tested some of the video capturing software and for me Mirillis Action worked really well. There were almost no FPS drops and the quality was great. The downside is that you need to pay to use the full version. Fraps is really good also but It is more heavy on your system and you also need to pay to use its full version. You can download the free ones in order to see how it performs on your machine.

Thank you, you answered my question perfectly. I didn't even know fraps had a movie feature LOL
I just tried it, it worked perfectly, even on GPU demanding games like Far Cry 3. And the full version is only $37. I gotta admit, that's a fair enough price.
Again, thank you smile.gif
