It is no doubt that FRAPS is the reigning software that sprung into most people's mind in their first venture into the world of capturing precious gaming moment. However, after using it for some time, one might start to wonder the limitations of the software, among those are:
1) File size limiation of 3.9GB per video recording because FRAPS is still using the older standard of AVI, which is openDML v1.
2) Game lagging during recording via Full Size (1920x1080).
Unfortunately, there is still no way to overcome the aforementioned limiations. This is when another software, Badicam came into mind.
With my experience of using Bandicam thus far, there is no impact on the FPS whatsoever when capturing the video in full-size. I am not implying that FRAPS causes a huge dip in FPS, but I would like to record the entire session of the game in single file instead of multiple split files, even if the problem can be solved by merging those files. The reason is because it uses compression technique to keep the file small. Below is the setting which I set for recording session:
"It is always better to record in the highest possible quality for later post-processing purpose."
