I have some fraps videos from counter-strike that I made. I want to convert them from the fraps codec to some other video format, so I can put them on the web. I have tried serveral programs, and none of them can open the video files. I need to find a way to either open them with a video editing program, or convert them to another format then open them with an editing program. please help me if you know how to do this.
In my experience, the most easiest way to cut viedoclips u recorded with Fraps is the following:
Organize yourself VirtualDub (www.virtualdub.org)
Then load the huge fraps clip into VD, choose Options -> Compression and select DivX codec or whatever codec u want.
After that, go File -> Save as avi and VD will compress the file into a small .avi with DivX Codec.
NOTE: If VD doesn’t work, install the newest DivX codec, then VD should work properly.
I can easily load the output .avi from VD into any viedo/audio editing program (From Windows Movie MAker 2 to Adobe Premiere ....it works :P
I have found that the easiest way to compress/convert fraps videos was to use windows media encoder which can be found at:
Hope this helps
i wish i would have done this before i made my WoW video, now i have to convert and then remake it. I’m using windows movie maker and when i go to save, the estimated time keeps increasing and nothing gets saved
Cannot convert and Fraps videos to DivX!!! I used to be able to, and now for some reason every time I try it comes up with
A Source File Error (-2)... I use the newest DivX Pro Codec, and VirtualDub!!!
@ crazy halo killa
some way to restore some “shits” from windows registry is simply to pull out the bios battery and then put it back again... :) watch out for any other restores for other programs ;))
Yeah, I’m getting the same problems. I’ve been trying all different DivX codecs and it always comes out low quality. The people at FRAPS should at least try to do something about their compression.
by the way thanks for help. but what should i do to get the best format quality to ues to convert the fraps file without loos it’s quality(smooth & clean pixel without blurred) . i mean the format after it be convreted looklike the origin look on the fraps but with a small size
please help !!!!!
I too, am having problems converting the files. The best is the “STOIK” video converter, but you can also try Visifly, Visicrop, and I think “Magic Video Converter”. The “magic” one doesn’t work that well with large files, though.
You do realize that FRAPS has nothing to do with compression. These files are captured in real time with zero compression. They are exact frame copies of what you’ve been capturing. Real time capture does not have time to compress without special hardware.
If you want high quality you have live with larger file sizes.
