Ok, I've had it up to here with OBS. It either doesn't record any video at all, only records a corner of the video, lags to hell and back any time there are any sudden movements in the game, or all of the above.
As far as the lag is concerned, I was told in a previous thread that my hard drive transfer speed might be the problem. But my hard drive can transfer up to 3.0GB/s! So that can't be the problem! Besides, I can record screen footage with camstudio no problem!
I want some screen capture software that meets the following criteria:
1. 100% totally free.
2. Records what happens on-screen. If the game automatically switches to full-screen, then that's what the software captures. If I can't see my taskbar or desktop, then I don't want the screen capture software recording it. No choppy framerate.
3. Records, frame-for-frame, exactly what I see on screen, at 60fps. If my character whip-pans, the screen capture shows a whip-pan.
4. It can record whatever I see on-screen, no matter what game or app I'm trying to capture. That's something that Shadowplay doesn't do.
5. Records mic and speakers ... together.
6. It's plug-and-play simple. All that bullcrap about sources and scenes ... why do I need any of that? All I want is to record what I see on-screen to a video file I can edit with VideoPad Video Editor. That's it. I don't need it to come with any extra features I'm not going to use. If I need any more features, I'll either get another app or I'll come here and ask for something that has that feature.
As far as #6 is concerned, Camstudio is the perfect example of intuitive use.
Look at that! Simple, succinct, and I can tell exactly what each icon does. BEAUTIFUL!
I could set it to record a single window, or the full screen. Or a section of the screen.
If Camstudio also met criteria 2, 3, and 5, I'd be set.
