Bandicam is a lightweight video recording tool designed to capture your screen activity to a video file. It features a mode built specifically for helping users record their gaming sessions.
Although the user interface is simple and it might tricky you into thinking that this is a tool with limited features, this is definitely not the case. Bandicam combines simplicity and useful features for delivering the best results when it comes to video recording operations.
The program gives users the possibility to select the area to be captured, namely a full screen window (DirectX/OpenGL), which is automatically detected, or a user-defined custom area.
Furthermore, Bandicam allows you to take snapshots and save them to BMP, PNG or JPG file format.
Other important options worth mentioning enable you to pick a default saving directory, make the program remain on top of other utilities, and assign hotkeys for a better control over the entire process, as well as enable the FPS display, set its position on the screen, and specify the FPS limit.
Plus, it features an auto complete recording mode which lets you limit the video capture process to a specified size or time value.
Last but not least, there are several video and audio configuration settings designed to help you select the number of frames per second, codec, quality of the video, frequency, and bitrate.
During our testing we have noticed that the application provides excellent video quality and without errors throughout the entire process.
All things considered, Bandicam offers an intuitive environment for helping all types of users, regardless of their experience level, record video games and their screen activity.
