Hey, guys. I've been thinking about starting up a YouTube channel for Minecraft, and would need a recording software to do so. I've decided that I will get Fraps, as long as it captures my mic audio and game sounds. I do know that it will not record the desktop, but this will not be a problem if I'm only recording Minecraft… I just want to know if any of you have used Fraps on Windows 8 and if it will record your audio. Thanks!
Actually, Fraps for Windows 8 will not let you record the new UI.
Do you all have any suggestions for a good free video editing software or a good cheap one?
Ah ok, my bad. I wasn't aware that that feature isn't working on Win8.
There really aren't any good, free recording programs, sadly. There are 2 programs that are most frequently used and recommended, first being Fraps (which I use myself too), the second being Dxtory. Dxtory costs around the same as Fraps, and is generally (IMO) a little bit less user-friendly, but should work just as well. Some people say Dxtory gives better FPS, but other say Fraps does. I personally like the easiness of Fraps and it works fine for me, so I'm sticking with that.
The ( DMW ) is the feature that provides full screen recording.
You must have a windows Aero theme enabled.
I know it works on windows 7, haven't tested windows vista/8
you could still record full screen if you downloaded something like manycam or Xsplit.
or basically a program that captures your screen like skype...
and then just use fraps to record that selected window/screen/program.
so if you have a really good computer with a decent video card...
you could probably even full screen record on windows xp if you wanted too including vista/7/8... and future OS's.
I personally use Freemake video converter... reduces file size greatly, and quickly converts video format.
you can cut and join parts of videos, and edit a few things. Its limited but very fast.
