Recording Software Fraps, Camtasia, ext.. Whats the best

Matt_Allensy

I just bought a 3tb harddrive just for raw files and I was wondering what is the best preferably not pricey software to use... I have Fraps and Camtasia but both have their problems Fraps for example the files are very high, and Camtasia well its Camtasia.. Any suggestions that produce high quality recording software?

If you have Nvidia card, you can use ShadowPlay.

Shadowplay is worth looking at for Nvidia cards, it seems to work pretty well.

 

The best free solution in my opinion is Open Broadcast Software. It's free and open source and has lots of great features. It might take some time to get to grips with and lacks an overlay like Fraps (but there may be a plugin for this around, I'm not sure).

 

Alternatively I've heard good things about DXTory, but I haven't used the paid version myself.

OBS is always a good choice, get to change and tweak everything you want, and you get the option of using QuickSync (Intel iGPU for encoding), GPU Accelerated, or if you had an Nvidia card, NVENC.

 

Raptr seems to vary wildly between people, I tried it on my friend's rig and it was just appaulingly bad, but some say it's alright. Worth a try at the least
