Recording on rFactor

Discussion in 'rFactor' started by Bradley Vanian, Jan 16, 2012.

  1. Is there any other way to record or edit replay's except for software such as Fraps ?
     
  2. There is an in-game replay editor but it isn't great.

    dxtory. However, that might not be any better!

    Why do you ask? Are you getting low frame rates whilst recording?

    Actually, large framedrops on replays are common for me, and makes it impossible to record...

    Dxtorty is much better then craps.

    Well, tell that to my computer! Fraps lags when recording. Dxtorty make the recordings lag!

    You need to record to a second drive that's at least 7200rpm to not get any significant lag or FPS drop.

    And that's what I've got. A 7200rpm hdd, two of them. And a SSD, so that shouldn't be the problem :)

    Well you have that covered.;)

    What else is under the hood. Let's see if we can find the bottleneck.

    It shouldn't really be a single bottleneck here!

    CPU:Intel Core i7-970 Hexa, 3,2ghz
    GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX 580 3072mb
    RAM: Corsair DDR3 1600MHz 6x2GB
    Motherboard(Not really relevant): ASUS Rampage III Extreme

    Got some watercooling and other snacks as well, but nothing that is relevant to this :)
     
  12. Thanks for all the info.

    Fraps is actually very good, you just need quite a good PC due to the way it records. I prefer Fraps myself, but I have tried dxtory, and one very good point to it is that I don't get any FPS drop.

    With that system spec you should not have any slow downs at all, if you are having slow downs something is very wrong ..!

    Yup, only when recording replays though. As one might see on my rF2 vids, no problems there at all!
    So, I have no idea why it is this way.
