I recorded some gameplay with MSI afterburner, and I got the video clip, and game audio, but no mic audio. I purposefully unchecked the feature that mixes in mic audio as it mutes the game audio and just sounds bad whenever I talk. I planned to add in the mic audio later in After Effects, but alas I can't even find the file. I expected it to be with the video clip, but nope. And it can't be a push to talk issue, as both push to record buttons for mic and game audio are set to none, and the game audio still came through. Any ideas?

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about graphics card software. We have determined that graphics cards are not gaming-specific hardware, therefore general support regarding them does not happen here. You may get some help at SuperUser, but be sure to read their FAQ first. – Frank Aug 7 '14 at 19:13
  • Try opening the software, finding a "Settings" area, and looking for a "Save Location" field. Your previous recording should be located around there. – Batophobia Aug 7 '14 at 20:09
  • I did, and I couldn't find any. The only save location is for the video, sadly. – ROODAY Aug 8 '14 at 19:48

    I disagree with this being off-topic, since questions about Fraps (gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/34249/…) seem to be allowed. While MSI Afterburner does have features specific to graphics card settings, it also is a very good free screen recorder, which is exactly the use case that OP is asking about. – SpellingD Aug 9 '14 at 19:25

    I figured it out! Afterburner stores the mic audio as a separate track within the clip, opening it in VLC let me switch the audio track easily. So now it's just a matter of merging the tracks with another program. – ROODAY Aug 10 '14 at 20:07
