Hi,

What program can you recommend if you want to make a video of your haul..

I tried Fraps, and If I am driving the Fraps is active in background I have between 50 and 60 fps in big cities so at 45..

But as soon as I start recording the fps drops down to brutaly 17, or 18. Highest was 20...

And that slows the speed enormously down..

I tried it even by only using promods and some minor map mods..

And Fraps cut the record in several avi files which are pretty big up to a few GB..

Are there some free alternatives?

OBS or Open Broadcaster Software is a free software for recording your game-play or other stuff.

i use OBS, and just yesterday i found a much better setting. ofc, the file size is now much bigger, but it looks also much better.
before for a ~30 min video it was ~700 MB, now 7GB.

I also use OBS for both recording and streaming, highly recommended.

Ok, thank you for the hint. I tried it a long time before with another game, but I had difficulties, the recordings were only in low res and so on..

Probably I had wrong settings.. So I will give it a try one more time

I use the Radeon relive. Good quality, files not big and I can split microphone into a separate track.

Action Mirillis is a good software, but is not free...
