Fraps Editor's Review

Fraps is a video capture utility specifically designed for the recording of other pieces of software, specifically tailoured to those which use direct X and open GL. This means the main use of fraps is for recording games which run on the windows platform. Although there are a variety of other ways to record games on this platform, fraps is the most optimized, so will allow you to record in the best quality possible, while still playing your games in the best quality possible, while getting the best frames per second (fps) on both of them.

Why would you need to capture videos and pictures from a video game (specifically on windows) anyway? There are a variety of good reasons to capture video game footage, the first and most prominent example is for streaming and uploading platforms such as Twitch TV, Own3d and you tube. There is a large community of people uploading and watching gameplay on these sites, and you will need a capture utility to record your gameplay to stream or upload to these, and fraps is the best way to ensure maximum performance and quality.

Besides showing your gameplay to others through online platforms, there are a plethora of other reasons to use fraps. Firstly, you can use it to record locally, and view your own “good gaming” moments on demand whenever you want to, a feeling that is great for any hard core gamer. As well as this, these recordings (and screen shots) of your game can be used as proof of doing something impressive or notable in a single player game, such as beating a game on difficult settings, and more.

Although fraps is optimised for playing games on windows and recording, and getting optimal performance and quality, it can also be used for a variety of other purposes which can aid your in game experience by a considerable amount. First of all, there is an option to turn on one press screen shots. This will allow you to assign one key to automatically take a screen shot of your screen, and save it into a pre-set directory. In addition to this, fraps will allow you to see how many frames per second your  game is playing at, which is handy for games which do not have it built in.

In conclusion, fraps is a brilliant piece of free ware built specifically for gaming, and having a massive deal of use in recording and playing at the same time, as well as just being a handy tool to leave running for its additional benefits. If you intend to use fraps for capture outside of video games, there are better pieces of software, but if you are a gamer who intends to record and would like to be able to take screen shots very easily, this is a near essential download.



Fraps Publisher's Description

Fraps is a universal Windows application that can be used with games using DirectX or OpenGL graphic technology. In its current form Fraps performs many tasks and can best be described as:Benchmarking Software - Show how many Frames Per Second (FPS) you are getting in a corner of your screen. Perform custom benchmarks and measure the frame rate between any two points. Save the statistics out to disk and use them for your own reviews and applications.Screen Capture Software - Take a screenshot with the press of a key! There's no need to paste into a paint program every time you want a new shot. Your screen captures are automatically named and timestamped.Realtime Video Capture Software - Have you ever wanted to record video while playing your favourite game? Come join the Machinima revolution! Throw away the VCR, forget about using a DV cam, game recording has never been this easy! Fraps can capture audio and video up to 2560x1600 on dual-core CPUs (1152x864 single-core) at up to 100 frames per second!All movies are recorded in outstanding quality.The latest Fraps 2.9 release adds support for Vista and DirectX 10 games. With games starting to appear using DirectX 10 graphics we are happy to report that benchmarking, video capture, and screenshots are now all fully supported for these titles.Vista also includes a rewritten audio subsystem. Fraps can take advantage of this and directly record a sound stream from the machine without requiring any support from the soundcard driver. This allows you to capture ingame audio even if you are using a USB headset or other audio device which does not normally support a 'Stereo Mix' or 'What U Hear' recording input.Since the Vista Desktop Window Manager (DWM) runs through DirectX we have also added a new option to monitor the desktop under Vista. You can now take screenshots and record video from the desktop just like any other game or 3D application.. FRAPS show fps, record video game movies, screen capture software. Fraps can show your frame rate in games! Fraps performs video capture, screen capture and can benchmark your fps! Supports both DirectX capture and OpenGL capture!
