    Hey all,

    Starting to play MWO a bunch and wanted to get some full screen video captures of it for kicks and giggles. I use FRAPS usually, but it is cutting the recording at ~1 minute then stops recording and makes me press F9, which is not conducive to fighting well.

    What do you guys use for video capturing?
    Thanks :)

    Shadowplay and OBS

    EDIT: protip, don't record to the same HDD your game is running from. It will kill your framerates.

    Good call. I typically record to my OS drive since it's SSD while the games are running off a WD black so hopefully there's no interference there.

    I like Fraps since there is virtually no loss in quality. Though, I use the paid version so that it will record a continuous file.

    I generally just record, cut/edit in VirtualDub with some added plugins and encode with Handbrake.
