    Camtasia is suited more for recording application tutorials instead of in-game movies. If you don't like Fraps, I suggest trying GameCam.

        I thought Camtasia has some sort of crippling feature like Fraps if you don't buy it. I think GameCam will be a good alternative. I don't think the free version is crippled.

          Anyone actually used GameCam? It looks interesting...

            I tried it once and it was neat but I wasn't using it for recording movies though. It has a pop-up interface in-game to control a bunch of things.

              I have it. It works well. But only the most upcoming version records BF2. Atleast that's what I have found. Other than that I like it better than Fraps.

              In the pursuit of... something.

                Interesting, I've been using Fraps but maybe I'll give it a try.

                  Camtasia and Fraps work miracles when used together.
                  Use fraps to record whatever it is you want to record and then open the movie in Camtasia and size it down :)

                    Fraps

                    Okay i was using Fraps last night to record of AA vids, my FPS would go from 65 to 14 when recording vids..is there a way to make it so it doesnt encode during the game but just dumps it to drive then encodes after the demo is done recordeing?..Or better yet how do i keep my FPS up when im recording, the demos look good but i can only get like a 15 second clip cuase it just bogs down my system.

                    thx

                      It doesn't encode it as it is, that's why it produces massive files.

                        Re: camtasia

                        I thnk it does use a fast lossless codec to cut down the filesize slightly, but I can't be sure of that.

                        Apart from a fast CPU you'll need to have somewhere you can save the data. It's a lot of data, so the best way I have found is to use another pc on my network as the target for the output video. I have a fast 1Gbit LAN between the two machines I use for this, and the target machine also has a RAID0 array so it can write to disk at about 90Megabytes/sec. Doing it this way might seem complicated, but it stops the machine you are running BF2 and FRAPS on having to write to the local hardrive while its running.

                        The upshot of this is I can record from fraps at about 25-30fps if keep the output video down to about 640*400.

                          Re: camtasia

                          That is a good idea, I will have to try that some time :)

                          EDIT: Results:

                          Normal: 37fps
                          Fraps recording to this PC: 20fps
                          Fraps recording to different PC 1fps

                          Yeah, that really didn't work...
