Editor's Description
In an era where computer games are getting more challenging and more realistic with each release, there are a great deal of users that are playing them on a regular basis. At some point, they might want to record their games, take screenshots or simply view their frame rates (in frames per second) while playing. This is where the popular Fraps will help them out.

Fraps is a powerful and highly efficient piece of software, designed as a reliable application that can help you out while playing games using DirectX and OpenGL graphic technology. There are three main uses that makes this amazing program one of the most popular choices among gamers from all around the world.

A great feature that Fraps puts at your disposal is its ability to determine and display the frame rates (in frames per second) in any desired corner of your screen while playing your favorite game. This can be very useful, because you can easily view how well the game runs on your system as lower FPS will not make the game enjoyable at all. Furthermore, you can easily use this application as a benchmarking software and store the statistics for FPS, frame times or MinMaxAvg on your disk with the help of a single hotkey.

In addition, with the help of the powerful Fraps you can easily record your games in a very efficient manner. You can easily modify several video capture settings such as the desired FPS (60, 50, 30 or custom), split the movie if it exceeds 4 gigabytes (useful if you want to store them on DVDs, for example) or lock the frame rate while recording as well as some sound capture settings in order to get the best possible quality.

Last, but not least, the reliable Fraps can also help you quickly take screenshots wile playing your games and save the in one of the four available image formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, .tga (you can only save BMP photos in the trial version). This can be very useful, because some games don't allow other screen capture applications to capture images within the game and they don't have the ability to take screenshots implemented.

To sum it all up, if you are ever in need of an easy to use and very efficient piece of software that will help you view your FPS, capture images or record your games, then the popular Fraps is one of the best possible choices.
