Sounds very interesting

I used to record footage of my game/software by recording a duplicate screen with a camera. So much pain and work before and afterwards -- fraps wasn't able to keep up -- and still inferior results compared to PlayClaw. This is an excellent product and well worth the money. Big thanks to you guys for making it.

@Papyrus The files are huge in Playclaw because you turned off compression. Even FRAPS uses compression in their files. Each computer is different but in my i7-920 I record to a different HD, use MJPEG video codec set to 80% quality and telling it to devote 4 of my 8 threads to compression. With those settings I get a few more FPS out of Playclaw than when I use FRAPS. The main draw for me is being able to separate the different audio tracks, something FRAPS doesn't do.

@Elite light license is special for those who don't need recording. If you need recording, then you should get Standard or Hardcore.
Commander Shepard Jun 6, 2013 @ 4:10pm 
Costs quite a bit, but I'm guessing that's because it is so much more superior than FRAPS.
Plus, the "light liscense" is kind of a rip-off, it should atleast have no watermark on videos aswell.

Once v5 comes out I will be more than happy to check it out and see what it has to offer :)
Toaster Jun 5, 2013 @ 1:54pm 
@CyberDemon Yes, I was not using any type of compression codex becouse I wanted to see if the claim that it is 100% lag free was true. Though I was ignorent in that fraps used a compression codex and not raw video. Do you have any plans on reducing the price for steam, if so I still might consider buying it.
CyberDemon  [author] Jun 4, 2013 @ 11:21pm 
@«SP» Papyrus, UI in version 4 is not good, agree. You will be surprised (I hope) in v5 - it will have better UI.
PlayClaw uses the same compression (low compression) as fraps, so their files sizes are similar. If you've got 14gb file on 3 minutes video, then you haven't used compression.
Toaster Jun 4, 2013 @ 1:25pm 
Playclaw Recording software claims to be lag free and I must say this is not the case (Then again no recording software is 100% lag free. I would just like truthfull information). Even without any amount of compression, frames seem to fluctuate and dip much more than when not recording.

Evident Pros: Built in compression, More customization with video and no fps throttling

Evident Cons: Intimidating user interface, seemingly useless in-game ui, cannot record open gl games like minecraft (from my experience) and a huge(r) file sizes (ex. 2:49 video equaling 14+ GB insted of fraps using less than 4 GB)

In my opinion the interface is hard to use and seemed to cause a problem with my computer making it go to windows 7 basic.

Don't get me wrong though, this product would be very appeling if it were $19.99 and they cleaned up the ui.

@MinecraftTribute Very, download the trial from their website to see for yourself :D

Is It Good?
The Turret May 24, 2013 @ 6:13pm 
I can't wait. I've been waiting to have a good screen recorder for games on Steam.
_Stads_ May 21, 2013 @ 11:31pm 
Really wanting to buy this and can't wait for the Steam release! If I buy the hardcore license on the site will I recieve a Steam key?
Vedmius May 20, 2013 @ 4:47am 
Nice)

Rabbids4eva May 10, 2013 @ 8:48am 
So, is there a release date (or month?)
_Stads_ May 6, 2013 @ 11:23pm 
Thanks for the info :)
CyberDemon  [author] May 6, 2013 @ 9:54pm 
@_Stads_, PlayClaw captures video and audio in standard AVI file which can be loaded in editors.
_Stads_ May 6, 2013 @ 3:23am 
Is this similar to other screen recorders such as FRAPS and Bandicam in that it will allow me to export the raw footage into an editor such as windows movie maker or sony vegas. So yeah my question is can this export just the video with in-game sound as like an avi or mp3 file?
Thundermancer May 4, 2013 @ 8:04pm 
У меня такой вопрос. Придется ли еще раз покупать Playclaw, если уже есть лицензия Hardcore?
Chuoi May 2, 2013 @ 2:45am 
when does it release on Steam ?
FoxLeks Apr 29, 2013 @ 3:00pm 
I hope when programa appear in the Steam developers did not forget their loyal users who have been with them for many years and already have the status of hardcore :)
FoxLeks Apr 29, 2013 @ 2:59pm 
I use this program for many years,I believe that the best program for creating videos and screenshots of the game. http://steamcommunity.com/id/FoxLeks/videos/ All my videos of the game made ​​just it's program.and you can see how great it is to work with it:)

hmmm... this looks interesting, seems better than xvid, as well as easier to get than Fraps, (since I have to use a credit card to buy fraps, while this I can just go to gamestop purchase a Steam Gift Card, and buy it from here, sounds easier and safer to me.) anyway think I might get this as soon as it comes out. Getting tired of just being able to record only Valve games with Xvid.
Blancholm Apr 21, 2013 @ 12:12pm 
I buy it when it is released to the steam does anyone know when it comes to steam

@HydreKhyra [CPC] : Le logiciel est traduit en Français. Ce n'est peut etre pas mentionné sur Steam mais c'est bien disponible sur la version télélchargeable depuis playclaw.com.
