Default Best game screenshot and video recording software?

I use to use Fraps freeware all the time but I'm finding that many games are crashing or not starting up due to some sort of incompatibility with Win10 and my new video card with drivers.

Win10 screenshot function does not work in many games.
Game DVR does not work in many games.
Shadowplay sucked up quite a bit of resources and cpu power with its TSR stuff.

Not sure if there is a solutions that is near perfect out there at all?

Have you tried OBS? It's designed for streaming, but it's got local recording options, captures well, and is free.


From what I've heard, shadowplay is one of the least resource intensive options, but maybe TSR changes that - with the settings I'm thinking of (and probably an older version), the maximum bitrate wasn't super high, but the impact was almost negligible.

The best by far for nvidia cards is the geforce experience capture. I dont use shadowplay just toggle it on and off when I need to record. Frame hit is next to nothing.

On AMD I use Raptr, which has minimal framerate hit at 25Mbps 1080p 30fps. I use have it record last 90seconds and hit a button to record that footage. Raptr isn't flawless though, crashes sometimes and loses my settings.

afterburner for pics and monitoring, and shadowplay for recording.

nothing comes close to shadowplay in terms of framerate during recording.

too bad it's a part of GFE, and I only Install GFE when I really need to record something,

Afterburner for screenshots and shadowplay for videos. Afterburner creates insanely huge video files with good quality settings; something like a gig for every 12 seconds. Shadowplay's video quality is borderline garbage imo but once it's uploaded to youtube who the hell cares about quality.

So Shadowplay does not do screenshots? That seems like an obvious functionality not to leave out but apparently they did, wtf?

Just stumbled upon how to get Game DVR to work in (I think) any game that uses 360 controller.

Press the center Xbox button when in full screen mode within a game brings up the Game DVR small menu bar. Mouse then can take screen shot or start movie capture.

While OBS does put on a small performance hit it is capable of a lot more options and video quality than Shadowplay. For screenshots I use the build in function of Steam for games that have it and then the games build in functions for other games.

What is TSR? Do you mean DSR?

I use Shadowplay and haven't had any issue with it since many versions ago when it would freeze certain games when turning on/off. That problem has been fixed a while back and it now works great for me with no performance loss.

TSR

When run with shader modifiers like SweetFX or ENBseries, I'm quickly finding out that many of these screenshot and video capture programs are not starting or function properly.

Most likely not the game itself but more so an incompatibility of them to not be happy running together, for example, Fraps and Experience with ENB.

lol, TSR... I haven't heard nor used that term for almost 20 years.

Not exactly the proper usage of it in this context but still good to see a few people know what it is...
