Fraps is simple but very useful tool for any gamer who wants to capture high quality screen-shots and create Videos from their favourite Video games.
Being a gamer and running my own guild in an MMO, I was in need of a piece of software which was able to make screen-shots of guild events in game and create tutorial videos for new members to watch and learn from.
There is one other principle feature of this program and that is the Benchmarking tool, this allows user to test how smoothly the game runs. I found this useful when I had first installed a game and was fine tuning the graphic setting to best meet my system requirements.
To capture screen-shots I found was quick and simple, in fact as simple as pressing a single hot key which had been assigned to do so within Fraps.
With the ability to capture screen-shots in formats such as BMP, JPG, PNG and TGA you will find uploading the images to your website simple as the most common formats are supported.
The video capture was just as easy, press the assigned hot key to start recording and when you are done simply press it again and it will stop.
I found the ability to set the frame rates, set capture size to full or half screen sizes and set if to record sound or not. This for me was ideal due to the limited space on my website, therefore I was able to reduce the file size to compensate without losing too much of the quality.
The free version of this program is very limited and anyone who would be using this will soon find that an upgrade is needed at about £27 this is a bit pricey but with all future updates free of charge this evens out the cost if you are like me and have used the software for many years.
