Screen Recording Software Help

i like to record myself playing BF3, but it is very difficult to doso because of quality, fraps slows to 5fps, though i have friends with lesser riggs than mine who record crisp...

i have have been recording with afterburner, but it slows down the recording if it is interfiering with gameplay, problem, its blurry, and after bout 5 min it will drop from full 30-40 fps, whatever i set rcrd speed at, down to 5fps, the 30, then 20, then 5 again, all in a matter of several seconds, and will repeat for the duration. also the recordings colors are off ever so slightly.

if anyone knows of a recorder i may try that may fix these problems im having, id appreciate it.

Hi,

Have you tried Camstudio with either the Camstudio Lossless codec (if you can get it to install as I have had issues with it) or using the Inno Screen Capture Codec (my personal favourite). Recorder and lossless codec availible here CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software and Inno codec availible here: iSCC (inno Screen Capture Codec) - Download.com. Adjust the recorder priority as well as that can help

Did you run Fraps off another hard drive? I have never owned Fraps but I heard it will improve performance if you run it from another drive your not playing BF3 or whatever game your playing on?

i actually might have just solved it... i guess i had to use a custom frame rate gennerally above 45, i was using 30fps, imma try it and see if it works

ive used cam studio before, unfortunately the codecs never seem to come out right for me. they end up being played back at 1.25 speed for some reason
