What do you all suggest for PC video recording? I'm looking for something that will record more than just Steam games, example, if I was to look up something on the Internet and then go into Steam--what do people use? Does FRAPS record PC audio/video? Does Action!? What do you use?
I've been thinking about putting some time into learning how to make videos as well. Can the software mentioned so far be used to edit footage as well as record it? I'd like to edit some footage I've recorded at an earlier time and then record audio on top of it. Any help would be appreciated.
Ah ah ah... MSI Afterburner is a much better local recorder. You'll get almost no FPS drop even when using OBS to livestream. OBS is great for, like I said, livestreaming, but for local recording going with MSI Afterburner is a better choice. You'll also get to overclock your GPU as well.
FRAPS = No go. It's poopy full of code that'll annihilate your performance with crappy quality.
OBS = Great for local and livestreaming. Good performance and great quality. Easy screen managment with even better plugins available.
MSI Afterburner = 1-2 FPS drop while recording locally and maybe 4-5 FPS drop while using OBS to stream concurrently. You can also use basically any codec such as Lagarith, Intel YUV, or AMD's VCE, or even uncompressed if you ave the space.
Verdict = Use OBS to stream and Afterburner to record locally. Works great for me using a Radeon 7770 Gigabyte. You can even set the same hotkey for both programs so they record at the same time.
