    Ok, I thought so, and the last question is how to make such a quality like in 3d buzz movies with small files ?
    (I made some movies and compressed them but not so much as 3d buzz was)
    Thanks in advance

    If you're looking to make tutorials it's probably better to use Camtasia

    Fraps records DirectX and OpenGL rendered video. Under Windows 7 and Vista, this means it can capture any video you see on your screen. In Windows XP and under, you'll only be able to record video games and such.

    So if you're using Windows 7 or Vista, I say yes, Fraps would be useful for recording video and audio for tutorials. However, it's not designed for tutorials so it wont do special things like highlight mouse clicks or show keyboard commands unless you use it with another program that will display those things.

    I recall an option to let UDK capture footage itself.
    Anyone any pointers?

    As Lynx pointed out, FRAPS provides high quality recordings on the cheap. Also, because Windows 7 uses direct x for everything, it can finally record the desktop and other applications (like photoshop).

    I don't agree with Lynx regarding needing a super fast drive in a striped array. Simply record FRAPS to a separate physical drive. For example, if you have 2 harddrives in your case and your OS/Game/virtual memory are all using the C drive, don't try to write a massive video to it, too. Instead, record to your second harddrive which sits idle, awaiting your massive video dump.

    fraps uses minimum compression, providing you with with a very high quailty video. The result video may be laggy because you are running a game and recording a very large file at the same time. The only solution here is a fast target drive: 10k RPM SATA drive, stripe RAID array, high speed flash drive/memory card, SSD drive.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. Is this in response to my post? If it is, then you don't seem to know much. Virtualdub is free, leaves no watermark, has good quality, and records games at a good framerate.

    Well, Virtual Dub can be used to record game videos, and it's supposedly less laggy than FRAPS. You do need to do some setup in order for it to work, but it's pretty easy once you do. I've used it, and it's pretty convenient.

    Here's a link that shows you how to set it up.

    I use fraps, mainly because its just plain good and simple. Then Vitual Dub (free) to compress files and Sony Vegas is great for editing them and adding in effects.

    Hope it helps!

    Honestly, CameCam is far better than anything else, as i believe it is the recorder that uses a high-quality DivX-based codec for compression. Also allows custom watermarks by buying it for the not-so-steep price of $39.95.
