Aliens vs. Predator vs. Freddy vs. Jason vs. Mothra

I've only ever used FRAPS because it's the first video capture tool I used and it worked perfectly fine, captured a perfectly fluid and synced video so I never really bothered with anything else.

So yeah, FRAPS is nice.

playclaw is better than fraps if you have a quad or hexa core CPU as it is optimized for it.

Play claw also does not limit the FPS to what ever you are recording at. (EG. record at 30fps, play at 60fps = better performance)

so...

Fraps
video:9
Sound:9
Sync:8
Performance:7

Playclaw
Video:9
Sound:9
Sync:8
Performance:9

I like fraps better than dxtory for recording.

I have a i7 930 but I still find that fraps does a better job with qualiy and fps.

Never tried playclaw before so I'll give it a shot.

What I do love about dxtory is that you can limit the fps of any game.


Edit: So I tried payclaw and I still like fraps the best.

You can use your own codecs with dxtory so quality isn't an issue at all.

Fraps for me...very solid/simple and high quality. Tho it might be a bit tricky with new games/etc as Fraps is very high demanding on the gpu/cpu

Although I like that payclaw has a gpu and cpu usage and ventrilo overlay.

That will come in handy.

Don't get me wrong I've tried all these programs. I use fraps personally. But Dxtory is by far the best.

The only reason you guys are using fraps is because its easy to get for free.. If your recording a game in realtime dxtory is the best option for you.

But if you just want to go back in theatre mode to get clips or even record the whole game again. Fraps would be easier.

Dxtory is for the pro's since you can manipulate pretty much everything.
