OP  4/24/12 1:28:29 PM#1

I'd like to record some GW2 gameplay and maybe do something creative with it...but I'm a total newbie so I need some advice.

 

What is the best software?  Which is easiest to use? and have any of you made a game video and can talk about your experience?

 

thanks!

Thanks for posting this.  I was going to just download FRAPS and hope for the best, but I wouldn't mind hearing from someone who actually knows what they are talking about.

The most commonly used is fraps, but without retail you can only record 30 second intervals, something new has come along which the name escapes me, but I think it's free, supposedly it is smoother and less lag casuing. You can only record game sound or mic input (commentary) not both from what I hear. Wish I remembered the name, but I figure someone will know what I am talking about.

If you want the best software to just record and no sound that would be MSI Afterburner.

 

But if you would liek to record sound also use Fraps, but also note that with any recording software use a secondary hard-drive  to record onto and not your primary. The reason for this is that RAW format of recording will slow your harddrive buy a chunk and you will feel the effects of this in game.

 

Have fun in beta =)

You can probably find something on Sourceforge if you want to dig for it.

I was told to use twitchtv and their recording software. I haven't tried it yet so you can be a guinea pig! lol let us know if you use it. :)

Afterburner now records sound and i prefer it over Fraps.  Not only is it multi core, which doesn't eat my fps like Fraps, but it's also free.  Oh and it records into one video and not a bunch of smaller files.

No idea about what is the best, but I do know people that have used both Fraps and Bandicam and found them both to be pretty good.

 

A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

That's with fraps, edited in windows video maker, on an old computer. As you can see not bad at all. Fraps is very simple, just click a button and you're recording, click again and it's done.

Remember... all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

I think this is what I was thinking about earlier (Afterburner) is that the one you can only use one audio channel in?

I should have included this in my post, but it''s a decent post with options for people.

FRAPS is LAGGY and overpriced. DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON IT  ...unless you're running 6 cores & dual Vids.

Everyone else should be using Camstudio with the also-free FFDSHOW "Mjpeg" encoder.  On average you'll usually only lose 5 FPS as opposed to the 20 to 30 you lose with FRAPS.  Picture Quality is a lot better too usually.  The only problem is, you might have to export the Audio track and tweak its tempo in Audacity to get it to synch.  (you can easily extract and recombine it with Freemake and then encode back to AVI.  ...Youtube will usually always accept the format as long as the playback Framerate is a nice round number)

You can see a DCOU video I recorded here where the Recording Quality was set to only 25% of full capacity.  Any lag that occurred in it was from the Unreal Engine & Sony, not the Recording software.

 

EDIT:  Also that guide in the post above this on my home-community  (Freefrag) has some good alternatives too.  ...I can't say I've tried them but like I said, I had already found something that works for me 10x better than FRAPS ever did so I just stopped looking.

Twitch.tv Does NOT have a recording software. They DO however Recommend using either Xsplit, or Adobe Flashmedia Encoder. Though those are for Broadcasting and not so much for recording your game play.

Personally I would recommend getting a Capture card if you can afford it( Black Magic Intensity Pro). I'm fairly certain it comes with its own software.

Buy Retail Fraps. Its the best, cheapest and easiest you can get, and use Windows Movie Maker to reduce size of recorded movies. Ive got the movie 5 GB turned into around 500 MB one. Even the quality wasnt bad at all in the end.

Streaming gameplay live was never my stuff. It became so mainstream nowadays that you now literally have thousands of mediocre players you spend time wathing at. That, and i dont like to pay monthly fee for Xsplit and stuff :(

This is incorrect.  Compared to other options (streaming software like Xsplit), fraps has the lowest impact on performance, because it only compresses the footage by a tiny bit.  The files wind up being HUGE, but the payoff is that it takes almost no toll on your CPU.  I was able to run Company of Heroes at Ultra settings at 1680x1050 with a crappy Athlon X3 3.0ghz processor and get pretty solid 30 FPS the whole time.  Here you can see the quality if you switch it to 1080p mode.  

 

Now another program that does a similar job to Fraps that I have been hearing some good things about is DXtory, but I haven't tried it myself.  I'm planning to check it out tonight.

Meh, i dont know, never tried Afterburner, i may try it once though. Its maybe that im too used to Fraps. I will have to see an video memory size and/or quality of recorded videos to make my judgement.

Considering this WBE, i will make a dozen of gamplay videos myself and i hope i will make to upload them here
