Basically, heres the dilemnia,

I wanna practice shoutcasting my Starcraft 2 matches and Heroes of Newerth games with some of my friends as a group project for fun.

However, everytime I use these on screen recording programs, I'm having problems with the video playback. It's not as smooth as I thought it would be. I have put the settings on 30 FPS, with a 1680x1050 resolution on Camtasia. However, when i watch the video I just recorded the video starts to stutter and skips around a bit, character animation and movement is too choppy to watch.

Bottom line question: Is it a hardware issure or is there a setting where I can have a smoother but less quality video?


AMD X3 440 3.0GHZ


ATI 4850

Windows Vista, 32 bit.

You are recording at 30fps, but you are probably playing at what? 40, 50, 60 maybe? You are dropping a ton of frames = choppy video.
