Recording w/ PCSX2
#1
Why does it slow down the game so much? No matter If I use uncompressed or Huffyuv (a lossless format) or WM9, x264, XviD, DivX. It slows down to like 2FPS.

Note: I'm saving it to a different drive from where the drive the ISO is saved on.

Maybe you're trying to record with too high of a resolution? It slows down here but nowhere near 2fps.

Well, when I try uncompressed (I know it gets capped by HDD write speed w/ this one), it goes at 5FPS (1920x1080). Anyways, I tried several, best I got was 30FPS. I couldn't use the Fraps encoder (it's really fast) w/ anything but Fraps as its locked. I tried WM9, getting 15FPS. x264 gives an okay 30FPS (It uses 95% of all 4 of my cores though). I finally got a good choice to use w/ Divx 6.9.2, it has 8 thread support (though it doesn't seem to be using more than 20% of the 8 cores). I can get 60FPS w/ it if I set compression to lowest w/ a 2000kbps at 1080p. I guess problem solved.

For the people who's having FPS drop recording using PCSX2, try Divx 6.9.2. It comes w/ K-Lite Codec Pack.

I don't know how you are getting bad results with FRAPS with your specs. All my videos are recorded with FRAPS and the lowest I gotten recording was 50 fps but, it was one of those intense scenes.

The built-in Recorders suck if you plan to play the game as you record. They are mostly good for FMVs, the fps just drops too much when recording with it.

I was talking about using fraps in vfw, which doesn't work since its locked. I can get 60FPS no prob w/ Fraps, but I don't like the inconsistent FPS. I can squeeze a steady 60FPS now w/ Divx 6.9.2 @ 4.0Ghz. Should be good for some 1080p recording.Happy

FRAPS is not locked, you can type in any FPS you want or just pick one from the list given. If you choose 60 FPS in FRAPS. the game will play at 60 FPS and no more.

The video is as Smooth as Shadow Lady.

Uhh, I'm not talking about Fraps the program itself. I'm talking about the Fraps Codec being locked (ie. you can't encode using the Fraps Codec on a 3rd party DirectShow encoder like VirtualDub).
