FRAPS 3.5.99 Build 156


The interface of FRAPS is not its strong side. But what it does is. Through the four tabs on top you can reach the desired feature and change its basic settings. In the General tab you can set the main features of the program. The FPS tab gives you the flexibility to choose the destination folder of the benchmarks, change the benchmark and the overlay hotkeys, set the benchmark settings, choose the overlay corner and stop its action after a certain number of seconds.

Movies is the name of the tab where you refer if you need to change the video capture settings. Sound settings can also can be changed along with the loop buffer and the destination folder. If you like you can hide the mouse cursor while capture is on, lock the frame rate while recording and even split the movie when the captured file exceeds 4 GB. AVI is the only one supported video format and in some cases the generated video files can be really large.

Basic Operations

FRAPS is capable of taking screenshots too and you can choose the file format among BMP, JPG, PNG and TGA. An interesting feature is that the program can constantly take screenshots every 5, 10 or whatever seconds of time until you decide to stop it. Different hotkeys are assigned to the different features which the program has and they can be changed based on your preference.


To sum up FRAPS 3.5.99 can be a very handy application if you need to take a small-sized video or a screenshot of what is going on while you use your computer. The program generally does not slow down your computer but in some circumstances it may affect the performance of your PC. Be also aware that FRAPS requires DirectX 9.0c or higher, a CPU with SSE2 instruction support and administrator rights in order to be used without any problems.
