Why let awesome moments just pass by?

5. Bandicam

Bandicam Screen Recorder Review

Bandicam is a game recording program with an excellent compression ratio, capturing any kind of game with 4K Ultra HD and 144 FPS, which means the video quality will be quite close to the original. It also records anything else on your screen, and you can even select a particular area you want recorded. You can then save your recordings as AVI, MP4 or image files or post them to YouTube/Vimeo if you want. Bandicam also allows you to record from an external device, such as webcam, smartphone, PlayStation or Xbox. There’s also the webcam overlay feature and voice recording, as well as the logo, mouse effects and real time drawing features.

4. Action!

Mirillis Action Review/Tutorial

Action! Is another awesome piece of game recording software (https://mirillis.com) with a myriad of features useful for capturing all those precious gameplay moments. It has a simple and easy to use interface, even if you’re new to video game recording. The program is very good at its job, allowing up to 120 FPS, 4K resolution and even 8K for certain setups, with relatively small file size considering the quality of the recordings. The files are saved as AVI or MP4 and you can also live stream to YouTube, Twitch, Facebook etc. Using Intel® RealSense™ technology, Action! Allows you to remove the background from your webcam and insert yourself into the game screen seamlessly. You can also record your audio, and even control your screen and recordings from your Android phone with their special app. To top that off, the interface is user-friendly and simple to use, and the program does its best to make the whole recording/streaming process easier and more fun.

3.Fraps

Fraps 2014 Review + Tutorial

Fraps has been around for years and is well known for its reliability. The UI looks a bit outdated, but is super simple and easy to use, with very little setting up required. The quality of the recordings is amazing, up to 7680x4800 and 120 FPS. It also supports multichannel recording, so you can record your voice along with the gameplay, as well as benchmarking. On the downside, it can be heavy on the system performance, and the video file sizes are inconveniently large.

2. Dxtory

Dxtory Full Review And How To Tutorial

This is a program probably best suited for more advanced users, as it offers a crazy amount of options and the UI is kind of confusing at first - it will take a while to set up before you can start recording effectively. However, having so many features makes it incredibly customizable. For example, you can record up to 8 audio tracks at once or tweak the writing speed at which the files are being saved to your disk. You can even make lossless recordings with unlimited capture resolution. Just make sure to maintain a balance between your hardware capabilities and desired video quality, as otherwise you might find it lagging and difficult to work with.

1. D3DGear

D3DGear Review

Yet another video recording program, D3D is especially noteworthy for its ease of use. It doesn’t require much in-depth study or figuring out what each option does, which means it can be used rather smoothly by both beginners and advanced users. It comes with all the essential tools: live streaming, voice recording, desktop recording, benchmarking, alongside video, audio, frames, footage resolution and other settings. However, it’s lack of webcam recording feature may not sit well with some gamers, and it’s been known to not work well with certain games.
