Hey guys, I know a lot of people are probably getting very interested in recording this game/beta (or recording in general). I've been recording for over a year now on my SC2 channel, but have just recently experimented more deeply with Fraps (to try and squeeze performance out of it). It's one thing to record the SC2 Editor, but it's another to record SMOOTHLY in-game without hampering your game performance but ALSO getting a good quality video.
Here's my findings that I hope helps others:
P.S. - And like I said in the video, let me know if you have any tips (or corrections)...
Edit: Link for Blackmagic disk speed test is down a few posts...
I imagine eSATA would be of an adequate speed for a separate recording hard-drive?
I haven't seen this in action or heard about it in use BUT from what I read this seems MORE than good enough!
And to Arnull: Yeah I read about other tools that compressed on the fly which is great for size but as you may have seen in the video, if I already am having trouble recording 1080p full-size then adding more stress may not be a good idea. I did read someone say that you should atleast have a core i7 if you're going to use a tool that records/compresses at the same time.
Edit: Also I used the 'Blackmagic disk speed test' (google to find a download for it, ignore the mac app store one lol) which lets you test write/read speeds to your hard drives. FYI it's part of software for an HDMI graphics card but anyway its tool can be used nicely here.
