Like the title says, im searching for a solution for recording my gameplay. I want to press a button, and the last 10 minutes will be saved to my local drive.

Is there such a feature for AMD in some software.

Furthermore. Can i get a short summary of which software i should install and what problems i got with AMD or what is cool with AMD.

ahh my graphiccard i get next week is the Sapphier R9 280x

 

Edit:

ive found http://raptr.com/amd.

Can this software powered by AMD such a feature?

If you need a hardware solution, buy some recording hardware first, and it will come with software and manual.

That's for accelerating video encoders using a GPU. You know, you convert something.avi into something.mp4 faster. It has nothing to do with screen capture.

I see here much people having trouble with the 14.4 driver.

And a lot of Bf4 trouble.

Has AMD much trouble with his drivers ?

A lot? The forum is almost dead. You see 10 people out hundreds of thusands of AMD users. Of course there are always a few who have trouble.

Ive made a research and for example: https://forums.geforce.com/default/board/33/geforce-drivers/ i dont see such threads ....

Hmm... today my graphiccard is comming. I will see and hope i have no problems with the drivers.

And "The forum is almost dead" is not a good sign :S Or is it only a support-forum?

The most intensive part of screen recording is conversion from pixel data to compressed AVI data.

So... I think it's time for some useful information.

 

AMD, in its current and previous generation cards (77xx and above series and R9 series), has integrated conversion for this called AMD VCE. You can, since a couple of months ago, get open-source software to take advantage of this built-in hardware.

https://github.com/jackun/openencodevfw

Now, download the absolute best game recorder, Dxtory. It's just like FRAPS, but better. Still a paid application. Dxtory can use the AMD VCE codec to convert the videos it produces from the screen, which allow you to encode extremely efficiently with very little impact on gaming performance. This setup WILL be better than any CPU-driven conversion, unless there is special hardware there too (Intel did this too).

I can say from personal experience that this recording setup is excellent. It's fast, and Dxtory has so many features that just don't exist in FRAPS.

I see that it is open source. I could coding my own solution that holds 10 min of capturing and with a key press the data will be saved to local drive.

Like shadowplay.

I think its not very difficult. But i hoped EA do this for us.
