too bad this is only supported by Desktop GPU's :(

 

I have 2 GT650M graphics cards in my laptop but neither of them are supported.

By default FRAPs does lossy RGB, you can toggle that off. Even with 'force lossless RGB' it's still doing something wrong: color is terrible. I'm not advocating for fraps: the performance characteristics just aren't there.

When I get home I'll do the FRAPs quality comparison: whatever it's doing, something is very wrong. If you can see a problem with my configuration I'll fix it and re-test.

Hm, never had color issues with Fraps, and I used it for a variety of games, so I'd be curious to see the issues you're having. I know the performance isn't up there with some of the newer screen recorders, but I mostly recorded older games so that didn't matter.

 

I'm intrigued that you advocate uncompressed recording; that's a crazy amount of space. You really need tons (and I mean terabytes) of defragmented free space to sustain that for long gameplay sessions. Lossless compression (say, Lagarith or FCIV) is so efficient with so little CPU cost, I can't see why you'd not use that. Is the framerate difference really significant?

ShadowPlay doesn't support ATI cards :(...

Minor update: while I could reproduce my FRAPs colour issue on an older version (3.5.4) it's solved in the current one so I withdraw my claim about it screwing up even when force is lossless RGB enabled. It seems like it was a bug that was patched a year ago, I didn't notice because I don't exactly keep fraps up to date. Pulling down the current version (3.5.99 b 15618) fixes the issue - possibly older ones too.

Yes, I see a perfectly black picture using the method you described (using Civ5 which also creates tga files). Kinda stumped that Lagarith would not produce equally perfect results - it's a lossless codec! It does operate in RGB24 space; perhaps DXTory uses it in YUY2 or YV12?
