I had used fraps for quite a long time. It is good and convenient. But there is a problem. The size I recorded of my gamplay ideo is really too big, and meawhile ,in the course of recording there is dramatic fps loss that affect my skills. Samart piexel has the same problem of too big a size. I am using Camtasia now. It generates really small sizes and creates lossless videos, 1080p. The only problem of it is its output format. CAMREC and CAMPROJ. They are all proprietary output format which can not be directly played on any other third-pary platforms. In order to move the video you create to your devices you must first use its built-in video converter. Here I have a guide on how to do it But remember, it is only a trial version which has a time limit.
