Shadowplay, thats the Nvidea recorder?? Il check it out.. I upgraded my GPU.. SSD is next I think.

I tried MSI afterburner too! Whooaa.. Clueless lol. I just want to record simple video's..  ;D

Yes, Shadowplay is integrated into GeForce Experience and it uses the hardware H.264 (MP4) encoders of your GPU.
If your GPU is relatively new, it should support it.
It's easy to configure and use (just use the maximum bitrate of 50 Mbps and 60fps).
Because of the low bitrate required for good quality H.264 video, you don't need a fast harddrive or SSD and your in-game performance/framerate won't decrease because your CPU has no more work to do than usual.
The downside is that Shadowplay produces variable framerate videos, which is not supported by a lot of programs and which will cause audio asynchronity.
So you'll need to transcode it to constant framerate which requires extra time and results in a little bit of quality loss (because I don't think there is a tool which can simply rearrange and/or duplicate the frames of a h.264 stream without encoding it again).
You can use Handbrake, ffmpeg or any other h.264 encoder that supports variable framerates for this.

Here is a short test video I did recently without converting the video to constant framerate.
I had constant 200fps while recording it.

GP Bikes will also need to be in windowed mode (you can force borderless fullscreen with the program Borderless Gaming) and Windows aero needs to be activated.

Wow, that's bad. The AMD equivalent (VCE hardware encoder) does not have this limitation.
Do you know if using AfterBurner (with NVENC) has the same problem ?

Even if, from what I read, NVidia may have locked some perf gains to Shadowplay ... (Unwinder's posts here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=395727::)

It's not that hard, but if you already have NVidia Shadowplay stuff installed, it's easier to go with that.

For AfterBurner: Settings/Video Settings
Everything is pretty explicit, except:
Video format: select external plugin, then click on the "..." button ton configure it. In the Encoder list you should see something NVidia specific (NVENC or something like this, can't say, I'm on AMD). Then hit "Benchmark" just to be sure all is working, and you're all set.

It's only true for GP Bikes. All other games I tried worked in fullscreen mode.
Don't know but I will have a try, thanks for the tip!

Hmm, the performance decrease must be very small then because I have not been able to observe it even though I am pretty sensitive when it comes to microlags and changing framerates.

But I am very mad at nvidia for forcing variable framerates, it just doesn't make any sense.



Nice videos bob and blackheart btw (not a fan of the music, though  :P).

Blackheart

The best ever first lap with great riders! ;D

Davide74 - Kawasaki & Fish Helmet (lol)
Blackheart - Kawasaki & Chicken Helmet (lol)
Demitsuri - Yamaha R6 White
Loopateli - Yamaha R6 Red




EDIT: I use Action! for rec, very easy^^

Just to be sure, the performance decrease should only exist with external tools as Shadowplay can still use the internal frame capture magic.
To be honest it's worth to double check this as the info I found is a bit old and even at the time it seemed some external tools had accees to the things that have been restricted in the drivers.

Interestingly Unwinder was explaining that the bottleneck for video capture is not the encoding part (on modern CPUs that is fine most of the time), but frame capture.

Nice lap and clean passing!

I use MSI afterburner to record btw. Works okay, the big problem is lag while recording, it makes it very hard to ride at 100% as everything is a little jerky and delayed.

This is kind of inevitable I think.

You may want to give a try to Mirillis Action: it has a 30-days free trial (watermark on videos).
I doubt it can do much better but ...
