Desktop Aufnahmen, Fenster Aufnahmen, Spiele Aufnahmen. Ein Haufen an Overlays (z.B. Timer, CPU, Text, Teamspeak, Frames, Uhr) die nach Bedarf sogar während der Aufnahme angezeigt werden, aber per Einstellung in der Veröffentlichung auf dem Video nicht erkennbar sind. Die Auflösung und Qualität der Videos sind ebenfalls einstellbar. Was mir persönlich sehr gefällt dass das Programm weitaus ressourcenfreundlicher ist als Hypercam oder Camtasia. Die Audiospur kann nach Bedarf seperat erstellt werden und muss nicht im Video eingebunden sein.

Hatte es damals für 30 Euro gekauft, heute würde ich wohl auch zu 45,99 zugreifen.
Man bekommt hier einiges geboten.

Mit dem Preis von 37€ zwar etwas viel für das was das Program kann, bin aber zufrieden. Im Gegensatz zu "Bandicam" das ich sonst benutze ist dieses Program Rechenleistungs freundlicher wärend der Aufnahme. Bei Standart Quallität als beispiel 16Min kommen ca 5 Gig als Rohdatei. Positiv finde ich die Wahlmöglichkeit der Sprachen für das Program. Bietet noch ein paar plugins die man zwar nicht wirklich braucht aber ganz nett sind. Grafikkarten GPU und Prozessor Kern Auslastung können eingeblendet werden. Auch Teamspeak 3 kann man sich anzeigen lassen. Bei allen kann man die Position etwas verschieben und die Art der Schrift und Größe wählen. Mit ca 50MB ist das Program auch Platz sparend. Anbei was man nicht unbedint braucht kann man noch die Aufnahmezeit in verbindung mit aktueller Dateigröße sowie verlorene Frames einblenden lassen. Macht sich ganz gut wenn man gerade auf einer Festplatte speichert auf der Aktuell nicht mehr viel Platz zur Verfügung steht.
Anmerkung: Stalker COP startet nicht wenn Playclaw läuft. Man kann es aber überlisten in dem man Stalker COP startet und ca 3 sec nachdem der kleine grüne Startscreen erschienen ist Playclaw starten. Das Playclaw Fenster dann nicht mehr anklicken und im hintergrund laufen lassen. Stalker COP braucht dann etwas länger zum starten aber es läuft beides und man kann auch hier Videos aufnehmen.

Personal Rating: "Worth Purchasing - if your into game video recording"
Traditional Rating: 8.5/10
Genre: Game Video Recording Software

I purchased this on a whim during the autumn sale but was heading out that evening so I didn't bother installing it thinking I would get to that when I got home or possibly do it over the weekend. What I did was promptly forget about it (I had a lot of work pressures on the mind not being helped by the fact I was also prepping and studying for exams). I also have a bad habit of never remembering what I purchase during Steam sales because I seem to go into a frenzied, rabid mode where all logic and reason get left behind at the start of the sale only to be picked up again as the sale door slams shut and boots me back to reality. To be honest, I have lost count the amount of times I have gotten as giddy as a schoolboy for a game I already own of which I had no idea I already owned.

I am not what you would call an expert at this sort of stuff and quite frankly I don't aim to be so FRAPS, when introduced to me, did everything and more I could expect from software of this nature. PlayClaw 5 has made me aware that I could have been expecting a bit more - but just a bit since we are not talking Great Expectations here.

I initially had teething problems with FRAPS playing and recording on the same drive. There where some significant hits to game performance even on beefy i7 systems but that all changed when I purchased my latest gaming laptop (MSI GT70 i7-3630 with 16 RAM, 256GB SSD and 750Gb internal drive). Having FRAPS installed on the SSD and writing to the internal drive solved all my issues. I installed PlayClaw 5 in exactly the same manner and besides I don't want these insanely large video files clogging up my SDD which would have had a hard time anyway of keeping more than two videos of 30 mins of gameplay before running out of space.

So for the relative newcomer to game recording how does PlayClaw 5 stack up against FRAPS, its similarly priced cousin? I have yet to try out Dxtory - which is significantly cheaper than both - but PlayClaw 5 comes with a host of options not available to FRAPS users. You can select a codec (granted you can only choose between fast, MJEPG, H.264 Intel Quicksync and the Nvidia codec if you have an Nvidia card like I do) but as mentioned above to a novice user of software of this nature I am really fine with this. Where FRAPS can be quite resource intensive, PlayClaw 5 is very much lighter on the system. FRAPS also has an annoying habit of loosing frames even though you are recording at 30fps but your systems experiences a drop in fps that is still well above the threshold limit. An example would be recording a game video at 30fps with the game running at 60fps occasionally dropping to 50/55 or lower which in turn would still show up in your recordings. Not so with PlayClaw 5 as long as your game doesn't drop below the threshold set in the options menu as this will immediately drop the recording to 15fps but anything higher will not appear which I really like. PlayClaw 5 also outputs smaller video files than FRAPS although they do still sit at insane sizes (+-5GB for 7 minutes of gameplay recorded verses the +/- 7Gb video size in FRAPS for the same sequence). You will still have to use a video compression tool like Handbrake or Movie Maker for Windows to get them down to respectable file sizes if you plan on posting them anywhere. I also found it useful that you can specify in the options how much of the CPU you want to use for recording.

PlayClaw 5 also has an overlay that can show a host of options to you (set in the overlay tab of the software). I found displaying the GPU temperature and usage as well as the systems CPU core temperature and usage to the screen in a non-intrusive way to be very useful. You can also display information such as write speed to drive and file size of recording (if you want to keep track of the video sizes you are recording). It will also record your webcam (dispayed in the corner) should you set this in the overlay as well as Teamspeak, if so required. PlayClaw 5 can apparently record up to 16 different audio devices but I could not really test this one out. It seemed to record the game sounds and my microphone perfectly so I was a happy camper. You are also even given the option to record audio in a separate audio file. PlayClaw 5 also comes with a screenshot capturing tool which you can set to take snapshots at intervals you set or when you press the desired key pressing. Nothing new here and what I would have expected.

The only downside I can see if you do this professionally is that the software does not allow you to select your own codec for recording that isn't already listed but neither did FRAPS (well not to my knowledge but maybe I missed something). Comparing recording quality I would have to say that PlayClaw 5 seems to have the edge but only slightly but It's not massively noticeable anyway.

If you are looking for game recording software and don't already own FRAPS (or even if you do and still want to see what PlayClaw 5 has to offer) I can highly recommend you pick up this software. Try and catch it when it goes on a sale (I got it for $12 dollars during the Spring/Autumn sale) or better yet if you can't really wait - head on over to the developers website and purchase your Steam key there for $34 instead of the $49 its going for on the Steam Storefront.

I love this software
Tons of bells and whistles , make a regular recorder look like crap, use this for YouTube , its very light and way more options and settings (but not scary and user frendly ) than those out there on the market. GET IT

Nutze das Programm als es im Angebot für 30 Euro war und muss sagen es lohnt sich das Programm zu holen.

-Man bekommt ein FPS Zähler, Temperatur Anzeige der Prozessor Kerne und von der Grafikkarte.
Zu dem auch noch Webcam unterstützung,Teamspeak unterstützung.
-Das Programm nimmt nur das auf was es soll, das heißt wenn man ein spiel im Fenstermodus hat nimmt es nur das Spiel auf, selbst auf 600x800.
