Whenever I record footage with Fraps, everything will run silky smooth at 60 fps for about an hour or so, but then the framerate will constantly lag at 1-15 fps. This will happen when playing any game. I have plenty of free HDD space.
Here are my PC specs:
AMD Phenom II 3.4Ghz Radeon HD 6870 8GB DDR3 RAM Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Here are my Fraps settings:
60 fps 30-sec loop buffer Lock framerate both on and off
Does anyone know what could be causing this? If not, then what would you suggest as an alternate recording software? (NOT CamStudio or Camtasia)
