Video Game Recording and Editing (Posted on 3/24/13 at 6:29 pm)
A few questions for all of the YouTube experts on the board
1. First and foremost I cannot record on ANY graphics setting without a massive hit to frame rate. I can run league of legends at very high settings at 120-200 fps at max res. Fraps lowers this to 15-30 on any graphical setting. Is my hardware simply insufficient for recording? I have a early model dual core I7, 6gb ram and 550 ti.
2. What video editing software do you recommend?
3. Is there a size limit to YouTube uploads/Do I need compression software? I record onto a 2 TB external drive so space is not an issue.

I use FRAPS as well and you can expect a drop in FPS but not that significant. How fast does your hard drive write? At a minimum it needs to be 7200RPM. If it is, I bet there is some lag between the it and the USB connection since it's external.
Just my thoughts, maybe Stout or some of the other guys can help in a little more detail.
