Video Capture

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question and I apologise if it isnt.

I have been using FRAPS to capture video.  However, this does not allow me to capture in video, overlays such as charts from Navigraph etc.  I have seen this done and I wondered what video capture software is capable of this?

Thanks

OBS Studio.  It is open source and used by Twitch streamers.  I have used it for a couple of recordings of FSX with overlays myself.  For overlays I think you need an additional monitor.  I use three...

I use OBS studio also, it's free (there is a contribute/donate option) and gets regular updates and works with my video capture cards (run it from a separate PC).  OBS Studio will allow you to capture multiple sources if that's what you mean by "overlay"?

If you have an nVidia GPU you can capture the desktop via GeForce Experience.

Cheers, Rob.

Erm.  I run Win 7 so OBS is not suitable.  I do have an nVIDIA GPU so will look at GeForce Experience.

Thanks for the help

I use v24.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 7 64.
I have just read that releases up to, and possibly greater than, v25.0.4 will work on Win7.
The "Previous Releases" button on  the download page will bring you here --> https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/releases
A few clicks on "next" page (bottom) will bring you to the older Win 7 compatible releases.

It's a great program!!
