Thanks for the help guys. Recording is going fine. Guild Wars 2 takes about 20seconds to load inbetween maps.
I started recording Metro 2033.
1) Record with Fraps, Audacity, Logitech webcam software
2) Open Fraps, mp3 audtio, webcam footage in Sony Vegas
4) Render as .mp4 Internet HD 720p (900mb for 14minutes)
5) Opened it in avidemux.
6) Compressed with x264 for video. Rate factor 25.
The final size is about 600mb or so.
I now come across another problem... When I render with sony vegas or when I compress with avidemux, my CPU usage is 100% and the temperature is 80C, sometimes 82C. It would appears I have to buy a better CPU heatsink/fan. I am using stock heatsink/fan. I think it is lame that intel sends you a heatsink/fan that can barely handle the CPU temperature at full load.
And it seems like a slippery slope doing this.
Started out buying a webcam.
Then I got a harddrive + Sata cable.
Now I need a CPU cooler.
Then I'd want to upgrade my 1440x900 monitor to something that can run 1080p. Then I'd probably have to upgrade my video card (radeon 6780). Then I'd probably want to upgrade my PSU from 650w. Probably need a new microphone because mine picks up my "Ps" and "Ss" and popping sounds.
But yeah. I think CPU cooler would be my next upgrade. Some internet friends suggested a Noctua cooler like Noctua nh-d14 . That thing looks big and intimidating lol.
awesome =p my 2nd harddrive has only 50gb left. space sure runs out fast after 35 video's worth of raw recordings.
