Hi, I've tried using a software called CamStudio, but it seems to drain my CPU alot, dragging me down to less then 10 fps in game while capturing. I haven't tried Frapr, but I can guess it wont help alot as my sempron isnt very good at multitasking. When play without any other progs in background i get a good 60 fps in game.
My computer has DV in-out so im wondering how I can capture with my DV cam, as I guess that should cost alot less CPU. Anyone have any ideas?

Hey,

Try recording the screen with the dv tape to tape, (this will not take up any extra CPU at all, but you will notice on the DV cam that the screen flickers in a way. to fix this change the shutter speed on the camera between 40-70 and it will stop when you get it to the same refresh rate of the computer.

then you can capture it to the computer without having the game open.

Hope this helps. Get back to me. :tazz:

you mean recording the screen by pointing the camera at it?
I guess I'll do that soon, its just kindof hard to position the camera right :tazz:
