More About Bandicam...
Bandicam possesses two main functions that can be used to record and document gaming experiences. First, it can be used to capture screens on the computer and then save them as picture files in much the same manner as native screen capturing capabilities on most operating systems. However, Bandicam's screen capturing function is a bit more powerful than its native counterparts because its user can choose to focus on a rectangular section of the screen rather than the entire screen. This enables Bandicam users to be exact about the information included in their screen-shots, resulting in superior presentation material stripped of the useless excess. For example, if a Bandicam user feels that including the taskbar will distract the viewers, said user can choose not to include it while producing the screen-shot.
Second, Bandicam can be used to record the streaming video created in either DirectX or OpenGL. Once again, Bandicam users can choose to restrict their recording to a rectangular section of the screen instead of the entire screen, for much the same reasons. Since the program supports AVI 2.0 OpenDML extensions, there is no limit to the size of the video clips made using Bandicam, except the room that is available on the user's computer.
It is important to note that even though Bandicam is meant to be purchased, people who are interested but still hesitant about making the committment can install it for use on a trial basis. Used as shareware, Bandicam retains the same set of features and functions as its commercial version, but comes with two limitations. First, footage captured using the shareware version comes with a Bandicam watermark at the top. Second, the captured video is limited to a maximum of ten minutes in length.
Otherwise, Bandicam's main benefit lies in the fact that it provides its service with maximum convenience. For example, it is capable of recording streaming video at a range of resolutions, up to a maximum of 2560x1600. Furthermore, it is capable of recording video at these resolutions without a corresponding bloat in clip size because it compresses said clip as it records. In much the same manner, Bandicam can also be used to record without a corresponding fall in speed, because it has been optimized to reduce CPU usage as much as possible without compromising its function.
Of course, Bandicam is not perfect in that users can still problems while recording. However, most of these problems are minor, not to mention that its developers have put together an extensive guide to help users troubleshoot their problems on their own.
