I have quite a few games on my PC that I would like to make some videos for, the only problem is that the frame rates I’m getting when recording are really bad. I’m using fraps, and when I start recording the frame rate usually goes down by two thirds at least.
I have tried lowering the recording settings, I’ve put the frame rate down to 30 and used half size and it has given me a little improvement, but I’m still not getting much over 20FPS. I have heard that having a secondary hard drive to store the video helps as using your primary drive can be the reason for the drop in frame rate. My HD is nothing fancy, just a standard 7200rpm 1TB, would having another, completely empty drive to store video on help at all?
