    I normally used Fraps and ZD soft recorder,but fraps takes alot of space (a video of maybe 2min takes 2,6GB space)thats to much.
    ZD soft recorder is good in recording but he lags and the quality of the videos isn´t the best:(.

    So does anybody know a good screen recorder,that his videos are nice quality and that it doesn´t lag?
    I use it to record my Gameplay a some other stuff.

    Sorry if i posted this thread in the wrong place,didn´t know where to put it:eek:

    (OP)
    When you use Camtasia,are the videos good quality (don´t have to be HD)?

    It´s only important for me that the videos aren´t 2,5Gb for 2min,and that the quality is ok and that it doesn´t lag.
    Fraps is awesome but for 2min 2,5GB that is pooooop:mad:
    Well i have 900Gb free space on my D: Drive but 2,5Gb is really to much for every video (if the video is 2min,if it is more minutes it normaly takes more GB),and to compress such a big video you need some time.

    Yes, the video quality is good.

    You mean it is 2.5 GB in .avi format?

    it should be noted that fraps is only good for games as it does not record just the screen whenever, nor does audio work in emulators (none that i've used anyway) so its functionality is very limited, even though it has good quality and minimal lag.

    camstudio works just fine for most all things in my opinion.

    I have allways used Camtasia and keys are all over the net.
    btw Camtasia can compile/render a hole 1 hour movie into 100 MB with great video quality.
    also u can edit or focus on certain parts of the screen and it can auto zoom.

    Its also very easy to use even if you are a noob with video editing :)

    I just used camtasia and it doesn´t want to record Gameplay 3d games.
    I tried to record Devil may cry 4 and it didn´t show any picture,only black screen.
    Does somebody know why?

    For games i use cracked Bandicam, works very good.. much better then Fraps.. the quality is good and the filesize low because its compressed. Bandicam 10 min Recording 500MB, Fraps 1-3 min recording 1 gb

    Actually, except Fraps and ZD soft recorder, there are various of this recording program on market. If you don't satisfy with them, you can try something different. Screen Recording Suite is a good choice.
