Recording Help
I've been trying to record TF2, but FRAPS just takes up too much space when I record (I dualboot Windows on my Macbook so I don't have so much room on my partition). Any other good screen recorders that don't take up like 1GB per minute of film?

This is a bit off topic, but I also dual boot Windows from my Mac. To make more space for myself, I shrunk the Mac partition and made another partition of the remaining space. I just then put all my files in it (You can download into different partitions on Steam).
1GB per minute of film is quite a lot. I guess you could try going on a replay server.

Dxtory is the same. I actually suggest you stay with fraps and instead get a video file converter to make it something much smaller, it might be a little more time consuming though.

Yeah I tried that before. I have an SSD for my Mac OS then have and HDD where my disc drive used to be for media storage and Windows. I used to have Windows and Mac on my SSD then partitioned my HDD for both Windows and Mac storage. But installing stuff and changing all the directories just got too annoying and things didn't really work too well so I just moved all my Windows onto a 150GB partition. Its annoying having to deal with multiple drives for storage >.<

Changing codecs is annoying too. I have multiple cameras I do actual filming with and one in particular (GoPro Hero 3) records in the H.264 codec which is much to compressed for the video so it does not make for fun editing. I have to rencode it to AppleProres 422 which takes forever and I end up with the same massive files. Same thing happens with FRAPS, I have the massive files, try to compress it, end up with small but laggy footage as my computer tries to uncompress the video for playback. So I just need something that can record in H.264 without compressing the files to the point where it is unusable

Ohhh. I'm not really a computer person, so I can't help you from there. In fact, I really just blindly stumbled around and had some accidents to make my partition :3
I hope you can find a decent recording program!
