In FRAPS when u check the max fps limit the game runs at that max fps. So if i check the 30fps limit the game runs at max 30fps. WoW usualy runs on my system at 60-90fps. If i check the 60fps limit then the game, while recording, runs at around 35-50fps.
If you limit in fraps, ur fps, it shouldn't infect the game?
and - why complain about 30 fps in the game, your eye only see around 25 fps - all over is useless
The eye limitation is true for movies. A movie runed at 24fps runs smoothly. This however is not true for video games. This is mainly because of motion blur (you can find more info on this subject on google :P). In movies u have motion blur, in games u pretty much don't (at least not in WoW).
From my own experience i can tell u that running WoW (or any other game for that matter) in 60fps is WAAAY better then in 30fps.
Well, not exactly :P
tbh, all people should know, that you will get more performance on ur computer with limiting the fps to 30 - with the /maxfps 30 - it's will tell the computer not to max out fps - so it will lower the graphic and CPU usage -
First define performance. In games the best performance indicator is the frame rate. In simple terms this tells us how many frames in 1 second the video card+CPU can render. The ability to render more frames in a given unit of time (1sec in our case)means that the video card+CPU combo is more performant.
So please tell me how can limiting the fps can increase performance? If u limit the fps u get lower CPU and video card usage and thus lower power consumption and lesser heat dissipated, but certanly don't increase the performance of the video card or CPU :)
Maybe i wasn't clear :P. I don't want HD resolution. The problem was that all the presets in Corel Video studio were at HD resolution. I just want the movie to be saved at the res it was recorded (1280x1024).
Anyways, about the resolution, you can't do much about it, only with scratching the movie to a wide movie thing, - and will make the graphics even worse.
It needs an 16:9 screen do record true HD
However i managed to find a custom resolution setting, and saved my movie at a custom resoluion. But it looks i have over compressed it :) From 8GB of uncompressed avi i got a whooping 40Mb compressed avi, but it looks grothesque :P
This just isn't fair :((
WoW got it's own recorder - in mac only - Cuz blizzard love macs.
