Tried out OBS Studio, but it creates a weird window on playback...a clear frame within a frame?....also it creates lag on MC...which i never get.
Not really user friendly either i find....
lol...just tried Filmora and get the same lag/jitter...it must be something in the settings...
So any suggestions would be fabbo!!!

streamlabs obs, best for twitch. Easy for beginners. Forgot to mention it automatically changes/optimizes settings based on your hardware. I have a bad laptop, I tried streaming a game with obs (didn't end well) and then I tried streamlabs obs and I streamed with less lag

VLC can capture video, but you'd need something else to edit the recording.

OBS is hard to use, but its probably the best free capture program, i tend to use display capture on top of game capture as it captures full screen that way, and i dont lag when using obs, review your encoder settings and set it to something less hard on your cpu. OBS has a steep learning curve but its really the best free video capture program imho.

Well, i havent used obs in a while, but you will need a decent graphics card, if you dont have a good gpu what you need to do is turn down the frame rate and the resolution so its not so hard on your computer.

I'm using Nvidia Experience's overlay video recorder. It works pretty good!

Yes it's free on Nvidia's website. Just download Nvidia Experience and press the overlay button. There's also a similar function in the Xbox Game bar in Windows 10. Just press Win + G and you should have it there

What graphics card or chipset do you have? Most vendors now provide such tools and utilities. If you know what hardware you are running then check out the manufacturers website for screen capture utilities.

Alternatively I used to quite like Fraps, its not free but you will be able to find cracked versions online within minutes.

Id say that hardware set up should do pretty well in terms of screen capture, I pull it off with good results on an older and far less powerful AMD CPU.

In the past I have found vendor provided utilities to be a little better in terms of performance than 3rd party software.

Looks like you could potentially run Radeon ReLive. I have zero experience with this so I have no idea what its like.

Might be worth a try though.
