Fraps 3.4.6

Fraps is a universal Windows application that can be used with all games using DirectX or OpenGL technology. In its current form Fraps performs many tasks including:

Benchmarking Software - See how many Frames Per Second (FPS) you are getting in a corner of your screen. Perform custom benchmarks and measure the frame rate between any two points. Save the statistics out to disk and use them for your own reviews and applications.

Screen Capture Software - Take a screenshot with the press of a key! There's no need to paste into a paint program every time you want to capture the screen. Your screen captures are also automatically named and timestamped.

Realtime Video Capture Software - Have you ever wanted to record video while playing your favourite game? Come join the Machinima revolution! Throw away the VCR, forget about using a DV cam, game recording has never been this easy! Fraps can capture audio and video up to 1152x864 and 100 frames per second! All movies are recorded in outstanding quality.

Fraps has support for Vista and DirectX 10 games. Since the Vista Desktop Window Manager (DWM) runs through DirectX you can now take screenshots and record video from the desktop just like any other game or 3D application in Vista.

Changelog:

- Fixed overlay color in Fear 3
- Fixed detection of IL2: Cliffs of Dover and Bloodline Champions
- Fixed counter appearing in Thunderbird and Pale Moon applications
- Other minor bug fixes

I'm sorry but using Fraps to get FPS is just not accurate...never has been and anyone who thinks its accurate is just kidding themselves!

So it does do 1080p? Is it limited to what DirectX version you are running in game?

Reason why i'm asking is because i found this piece of software called Overwolf. While i've tried it, and it seems pretty cool, for whatever reason they are stuck on DirectX 9.

I want to be able to shoot 1080p in whatever i'm recording.

Fraps can record up to 2560x1600 from 1 to 120 FPS. DirectX 11 Support was added 11/21/2009 and DirectX 10 Support 01/03/2009. I've been using it for years to record gaming videos, just make sure you have a powerful machine and enough storage to capture the video and you should be good to go.

The only thing Fraps has trouble with is very old DirectX versions. 99% of what has been released in the last 10 years will be recorded perfectly at the max framerate your hard drive/cpu will allow.
