if you have an nvidia graphics card you could use the internal program from nvidia experience (also manages your drivers)Yeah amd radeon has something called ReLive. Just make sure hevc codec option is NOT selected as that's h265 & can't be edited in most video editing software yet. I think it also has a streaming option which I've not tried out. I personally use Camtasia.as far as i know radeon cards also have/get a recording feature with catalyst...by that you dont need an extra program.If its needed to finetune your recirding settings in detail i can suggest also OBS or fraps.
Thank you all so much for the input! I do have an nVidia graphics card, so I'll try that first. If that doesn't work, I'll look at the other programs you all mentioned. Thank you!The recorders that come with nvidia/amd driver packages should record fine. Only thing is if nvidia is anything like amd relive then it probably doesn't have many fine tuning options for the recording, but you can always convert & edit it in another application afterwards. Plenty of free open-source ones floating about out there.
