So today I attempted to do my first ds106 assignment~ I have been wanting to learn how to do screen capture for a while so this was a good one to try out~ Though the assignment details say that Fraps and CamStudio are the best programs to do screen capture, I kept running into problems with them, Fraps would only record 30 seconds since it was just a trial version, and CamStudio slowed down what I was trying to record, so it seemed kind of useless. I eventually was able to find a program that is pretty decent at doing screen capture. It’s called WeGame Though it requires to make an account (which is free) it was very easy to use~ and it is just straight to the point….. Just have to set up some simple settings, and then you can easily record whatever you want to record… While you start your game (or whatever you’re doing) there will be a small green square on the top left corner once you press F6 (or whatever key you set) it should disappear and that means that it should be recording.
I decided to record myself playing one of my favorite games~ Pop’n music~
this is what the arcade version looks like~
to stop recording just press it again. and the video will be sent to the folder you selected. I was able to record everything I wanted (even recorded skype sounds) sadly the video quality was not as good as I thought it would be. I also noticed that some of the video is kind of choppy, which is also a shame… so now I shall leave you with Dschinghis Khan…. and BaumKuchen
