Don't waste your money on this. I have had way more problems with this than I would expect from a program I payed for. At least 5 of 20 the videos I have tried to record with this have ended up being corrupted and unusable. Additionally, if you want to stream from a capture card 3ds it is very problematic to set up to look alright, and if you want to put a border for your stream, it looks bad. At least for streaming Xsplit is free and better

There is one major issue i have with Action and that is when i record in a game, it often crashes my computer. The FPS drops down below 10 and then my comp cant handle it. IDK if this is because of my graphics card (NVIDIA GTX 760) or my processor (i7) but I'd like to know what can be done!

I really like this so much but....

This software runs greatly. but It can't run without internet connection and your friend can't join you some game that you are playing because the Action is running in the same time. If you are not serious this software is great, if you want enjoying games without these problems you should buy this software from other, but not from Steam....

<<<< sorry if this make you confuse >>>>>
