alternatives to FRAPS

Anyone know any good alternatives to FRAPS. My main problem is the fact it records to uncompressed AVI files

I used FFsplit for a little while which doesn't give monstrous filesizes, but I didn't appreciate the framerate drop that came with it. Might be worth looking into

I guess you weren't there when Chatters was teaching Fox how to use Handbrake Razz

But yeah, I find it's best to record with fraps, leave pc encoding with handbrake while at uni and deleting the originals when I get back. Need a big hard drive though.

Just use handbrake. Simple to use Wink 1 recording went from 8gb to like 350mb and still looks good

Dxtory

Post  Chatters on Sun Dec 09, 2012 6:11 am

I'm looking at a program called Dxtory at the moment. Same function as FRAPS but way more control, it looks seriously much better than FRAPS. It also compresses on the fly and apparently has a smaller FPS hit that FRAPS - ALLEGEDLY.

I've looked at the settings already and I'll try it out in game later today. It looks really good so far.

The other wonderful thing about it is that it allows for recording of multiple SEPERATE audio channels (upto 8 ). Which means, unlike FRAPS, if you record your mic and game+mumble in seperate channels it is possible to volume balance the two in post processing rather than finding out that the mic is virtually silent and can't be heard over the game audio and not being able to do anything about it.

I managed to record on my computer (the shit one) so that was exciting. Managed it at ~40fps which is what the game runs at normally on that computer. I think it takes a bit of extra post processing though compared with FRAPS. Handbrake had trouble with it so I used Movie Maker to render it. That could have just been the codec I was using. Should be able to change that.
