Just curious- Is there anyway you reduce the file size that fraps makes? I have it set to 25 fps and no sound, and still the file sizes are huge. 5-10 seconds is almost 200 mb. Or is there a better recording program out there?
Yeah I read the readme and i read the support part at the fraps site, but the problem is that it makes it so low quality that you can't see anything very well. (plus I've had fraps for like 5 months now, and i deleted the installer long ago) but still. Everything I use makes the quality terrible.
Feel free to save it at 30fps with audio - just import the file (all 200+ mb of it) into Windows Movie Maker, put it together and export it as a .wmv - you can get it down to like 20-30% of the original size.
Window's movie maker won't take it. Says it's corrupt or something. Which no matter how many movies i make with it it won't work. Same with Divx converter. I can get a 2 gig file down to 30 mb, but the problem is the quality is **** and the screen is small. And I can't change how good I want the quality to be or anything.
What I do is (most of the time) record @ 30FPS w/ Sound, then just toss it up in WINDOWS MEDIA ENCODER and change the dimensions to about...640x480 (800x600 at the MOST) then convert it. Works like a charm.
