Do people even know why FRAPS lags computers? It writing 1080p (or whatever res) screenshots COMPLETELY UNCOMPRESSED at 30 per second. You will not, no matter what, achieve better picture quality then when you use FRAPS. People often don't see a difference because they render their videos with shit settings. FRAPS is physically better then Bandicam, because it actually records the game it self, not a compressed copy. This is also why the files are so large. Just put them in an editor and render them WITH GOOD SETTINGS. That, my friend, is how you look professional. When you can full-screen 1080p and have no artifacts, stalled pixels, or vertical desync.
I use fraps.
Would me having a small hard drive result in the recording being cut off like after 30 seconds?
This is because you don't have the paid version.
I use Fraps. But i bought it. Fraps works very good for me. But remember the better quality you want to record with the more space you need. 30 seconds with 60 fps would end up around 1,5 or so gigabytes. So i recommend a big harddrive. And also get a videoediting program so you can compress the videofile. :-)
Something is wrong there because I can record 1800 seconds and end up with 32Gb of space used, not 90Gb. I also have a FRAPS exclusive hard drive.
All in all, FRAPS is absolutely better quality. You can not argue with it. If you are experiencing better quality using Bandicam, you are rendering incorrectly.
Sorry if this post was bitchy but I wanted to get the information out.
