Need a good combanation for both game recording and video editing - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Another great piece of software is Open Broadcaster Software, or OBS. It's a free program that allows the user to stream gameplay (or anything, really) to basically any website they wish, and it also doubles as a great recorder. My friend and I both use the program for live events/live streams to YouTube and Twitch, and we also use the program to record gameplay to our hard drives.

My Titanfall Live Event (which was purposely recorded at 360p due to my internet connection speed and bandwidth limit)

Borderlands 2 gameplay recorded at 720p and then uploaded to my YouTube channel

A Twitch live stream of my friend and I playing Titanfall on PC then uploaded to our YouTube channel (the video's orange layout with the text and such was created and oriented using OBS's customization tools)

The program's very versatile, easy to use, doesn't cause gameplay lag, and has many different options for complete customization (from the quality of the stream, to how many devices/screens the user wishes to record at once, positioning of different things, audio quality, etc.) and it can record gameplay of BOTH 32-bit and 64-bit games, unlike MSI Afterburner.

I HIGHLY recommend it as one of, if not the best all-on-one program for live streaming and desktop recording.

Either get a dedicated capture card OR get an Nvidia GTX 770 or 780.

The dedicated capture card would eliminate any lag you're seeing right now pretty easily.
And the nvidia GTX 770/780 have a little something called ShadowPlay which allows you to either record 1080P @ 60 FPS in real time or do this delayed recording thing that can save the last 20 minutes into a cache so you can record a video at any time you want. The best part is it only imparts about a 5% performance penalty, even recording 1080P @ 60 FPS.

Just some food for thought. If you don't want to do all of that, as others have said, FRAPS @ half quality and 30 FPS will work very well and shouldn't drag your system down very much.

Shadowplay is freaking amazing, I was using fraps before that and now I realize just how awful fraps is for recording.
If you can use shadowplay, do so. Its worth it.

I've been using After Effects for editing for a long time.
