hi guys ive been trying to record gameplay with fraps and dxtory but they come out low quality. dxtory is low quality. and fraps is super choppy and freezes in the video, not when recording. here is an example with dxtory. on 720p?

What are the write speeds of the hard-drives? Are they both 7200 rpm? Have you used DXtory to test the speed of the output folders you are recording to?

You probably won't be able to record BF4 on to the F: drive and play the game at the same time without considerable lag.

Ok, generally the rule of thumb is to record to an extra-drive that isn't the one running the game you are playing. It may not cause in game lag because your processor can handle all the data, but it can cause problems in the encoding of the video.

Have you tried searching YouTube for a video that explains the optimization of DXtory or Fraps? (I prefer DXtory out of the two)

And one more thing, your DXtory video looks pretty good! You may just need to optimize the software to tweak it. Sometimes recording the game in different resolutions can change the final product. What are you using to render the videos for YouTube?

i used sizer to get 720p resolution from the game not the sides of the window. and used lightworks because i heard its a good FREE editing software, and rendering at 30 fps at 720p

Ok, if you were using an nVidia card, I would suggest using shadowplay, but in your case, DXtory will probably work the best, perhaps even mirillis action.

I believe there is a free trial out there for Sony Vegas, might be another thing to consider.

Recording in full-screen tends to produce the best results for me.

I fail to see the stutter you are referring to in the video samples.
