Why doesn't it auto-render them? Would be much better if it did.

Another facepalm-worthy thread by Funky_Finny

Sure, let's have fraps not only record but also convert raw video files while also playing a game.

I have to agree with Lucien.

You know how much it lags when you record with Fraps, hmm?
Now, imagine that, plus Fraps using all available CPU power to compress the films.

Since it's live recording in an already resource-heavy envoirement, it'd simply use way too much resources to compress the files directly.
The idea of any hi-fi system is to reproduce the source material as faithfully as possible, and to deliberately add distortion to everything you hear (due to amplifier deficiencies) because it sounds 'nice' is simply not high fidelity. If that is what you want to hear then there is no problem with that, but by adding so much additional material (by way of harmonics and intermodulation) you have a tailored sound system, not a hi-fi. - Rod Elliot, ESP

Actually, lucien, freezer and sherif are all wrong.

Fraps uses what is known as 'wide-bits' - which take up approximately 2.45x as much space as normal bits.

I thought it used its own shitty FPS1 compression.
