Yea i spoke to one of my old guildies, we had 3 guys making boss kill vids and they all used Fraps. If you Youtube "Alonsus Xanadu" then it'll throw up some of their older stuff....cant seem to get hold of the better ones though
The filesize is concerning, noway would Vimeo, Youtube, WarcraftMovies and all them take such big files. Maybe you have the program setup wrong?
Also i can say that you should have absolutly no slowdown on your rig unless you are trying to do really crazy stuff.
no Actually "to tell the truth" it was me Friend,I'm not sure what CPU he has,But I set Fraps at 30fps and that's where it stays,But I was speaking for my friend,not that it makes any diff.
but yea fraps vids are like 1gb=1min so thats like high,and I see no way to change it?
I have a little expierience in this field so, I will step in and give some advise. Use FRAPS but, in the options screen for videos, set it to use half size or quality can't remember what it says but you will see the half something, it is the only option under the video tab that has the word half in it. Use FRAPS to make the movie after changing that setting and it will knowck the size down a little right off the bat. Then in turn use AVS video converter and make it a .mov file which is Quicktime. Use the apple tv option as it is the best quality. This will knock your videos down to say around 60mb and also look good on youtube..
Here is a video of mine I used this method with "p.s. Watch it in high quality"..
