I use Fraps and Camtasia but neither are free.

You can change the resolution of the capture in the setup file (you prolly already know all about that), but yeah, microsoft video codec is total crap. It would be cool if you could use divx or flv. They look sooooo much better and create smaller files.

WeGame is a good alternative.

You can use DivX ... you just install divx and change msvc to divx in the setup file and set your res....

2 warnings though..

1) you need lots of ram.... (to hold the video info while the processor compresses it)

2) FPSC X10 will lock up when you are done recording till the processor finishes the compression of the video file from the ram.

NOTE: the only issue with using DivX files with your game is that people will require DivX to be installed on there machines in order for them to see the videos in you game. So basically you would have to include the DivX installer with your game when you release it.

Hope this helps,

This program will allow you to convert it to just about any codec installed on your machine...

big cheers so what is the highest setting for width and height, also the dixv works much better than msvc. takes less pausing between shots captures the colour and more. just need a good res, but cheers squalker, what settings have you got yours on? in the you tube video?

1280x720 30fps is 720p HD
1920x1080 at 30fps is 1080p HD

you can also try 60fps if you machine can handle it.
