  • GeForce ShadowPlay Beta Launching October 28th

    Choice quotes:

    On October 28th NVIDIA will be releasing GeForce Experience 1.7 on GeForce.com and through the in-app automatic updater. In addition to the latest Optimal Settings updates and a few other surprises, GeForce Experience 1.7 will introduce GeForce ShadowPlay Beta, a highly anticipated gameplay capture tool.

    Fast, free and easy-to-use, ShadowPlay is a new approach to gameplay recording, utilizing an on-board H.264 encoder built into GeForce GTX 600 and 700 Series graphics cards, and an innovative recording mode that shadows your every in-game move.

    ShadowPlay leverages the H.264 hardware encoder found on GeForce GTX 600 and 700 Series graphics cards to record 1920x1080, 60 frames per second. All DirectX 9 and newer games are supported. In comparison to software solutions that hammer the CPU, ShadowPlay’s hardware solution has an approximate 5-10% performance impact when using the max-quality 50 mbps recording mode, and by saving to automatically-encoded and compressed H.264 .mp4 files, ShadowPlay avoids the disk-thrashing, humongous, multi-gigabyte files associated with other gameplay recording applications.

    If you prefer to save every single moment, enable Manual Mode with the rebindable Alt + F9 hotkey, which acts like traditional gameplay recorders, saving your entire session to disk. Windows 7 files cap out at 4GB per file due to OS limitations, but on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, file size is only limited by available hard disk space, enabling hours of footage to be recorded to a single file.

        I love how it doesn't need to much processing power.

          Ok I tried it the other night . . . no issues and no bandwidth rob when playing ArmA3, but (Huge BUT) . . . when we were done I was left with "unreadable" AVI files . . . nice and big at 4GB each . . . but no amount of messing with them made them work.

          Thoughts?? . . . am I doing something wrong?? . . . I'm going to play more with it today but thought I'd ask you guys as well.

            I've been using it also... no problems, but I did lower the capture time down to 1 min... and just capture a highlight or two, you come into problems with longer times and bigger files.

            This video was made with a collection of 1 minute captures... no corruption and no lose at all... HIGH setting, 1920x1080x32.



            and more on the page.

              It seems to 'stop' working during BF4 sessions a lot of the time. I'm not sure if its the constant alt-tabbing or what.

                ^It only records in fullscreen mode. So if your alt tabbing - yes it would stop.
