In-Game Video Capture

Recommended Posts

This may be a bit off topic, but here goes. I am trying to get this program called FRAPS ( http://www.fraps.com ) to capture in-game video of DooM, but it doesn't seem to work with anything besides ZDooMGL. I'm guessing this is because all other ports such as ZDooM, ZDaemon, Skulltag use software video rendering (although I thought they use some form of DirectX)? Any ideas on how to get this to work, particularly in ZDaemon since I would like to capture some demos I have, or perhaps another capturing program I could use... Thanks in advance.

fraps captures the video buffer info... in short, it only captures OpenGl video output. It doesn't work with anything rendered 2d(like Zdaemon or the real game).
I used fraps to capture these with glboom: http://www.doomworld.com/10years/demos/demos06.php
of course, if you use something other than fraps, you might be able to capture the data of directx... but good luck with that.

okay, I could be wrong, but that was my experience.
perhaps it requires a re-directed output of the video... and my OS doesn't support that.
let me know if you get it working, I'd like to see your results. :)
