I recently started recording video's on some mods for GPL. I used OBS for recording, but since I installed the latest update there is no way the record the GPL anymore. It just show a black screen with only sound. Previously I could press a hotkey and it would capture any window on the foreground but that doesn't work anymore. And because GPL can't be minimized or windowed I also can't add it as a 'gamecapture'.

The recording quality (especially at 60 fps) already wasn't that good or consistent with OBS, so I would like to move to something better. Doesn't really matter if the program is free or not, if it isn't too expensive and doesn't impact peformance much I'm happy with it.

Any recommendations or good experiences with other recording software?

I have been using Bandicam for years and it hasn't disappointed me.
Very user friendly and recording goes smoothly.

So yes, good recommendation for me, too :)

I have also bought a licence for Bandicam.
A great tool.

See John`s link above for more infos on the different programs available and also for some settings we have used for the programs.

I am looking forward to some capturing of you. :)

I'm so happy with it, it made me just realise how bad OBS really is.

I use Davinci Resolve to edit / compress video, and I always had such bad playback. It was a nightmare to edit mutliple takes because it was lagging like crazy. Endless stutter.
But when I import a video from Bandicam playback suddenly is instant and so smooth. I really don't get it what is so wrong with the video's OBS outputs (They were just MP4's like Bandicam), but I'm glad I got rid of it. :)
