Inflight Video Recording with FSX

Recommended Posts

I have been contemplating video with FRAPS but in the interim, have been videoing with FSX just to check things out. I have found that if I start the recording process before I drop the gear, upon playback, it doesn't show the gear coming down or the reversers moving.The plane lands about 3 feet off the ground just fine and stays there, with no gear visible? Can anyone explain why this is?I am using a Quadcore 2.4 with an 8800 GTX video card, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I would think not becuase I had it running on another machine and it did the exact same thing?

@BillThanks, i would also not fly with me. Only one reason, why i love FSX :)@Falk781I think your problem is caused by an add-on airplane. Recording with "complex" airplanes and add-ons is critical. I just tried to record my leveld 767, landing on Friday Harbour, but i got always a CTD (demo.dll).With the great Eaglesoft Twin Comanche, which i really love, i get a MS VC++ Runtime Error (Pure Video function call, R6025).I guess, some add-on airplanes are doing many things in a different way, than the default airplanes and FSX doesn't know that by recording.I will now test with fsrecorder (http://www.fs-recorder.net/).

Ok, tested and it works with FS Recorder and the Twin Comanche:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Suv7Koq3niw :)It's a great fun, to use this fantastic tool and this tool records all events (you only have to check the settings). Only some animations are missing (e.g. gear lowering).

I have used some "aftermarket" planes but I will try the FS recorder and see what it does.
