You need the help of a screen recorder in order for you to make a game tutorial. It is true that there are games that are easy to play while there are some which are not. With this, people tend to look for videos on how to play them. More video games nowadays are not as easy as the Pacman game or the Flappy bird game. Video games like DOTA, Prime World, League of Legends and more, need some tutorials to start off. To help you out, below are the best tools to use in making your game tutorial.
Solution 1: Fraps
This is the most common recorder for online games. It can record video and audio but it can only record sound from one source. It can also capture screenshots and it can perform the custom benchmark. Moreover, this tool offers limited video recording length. Game tutorials should be very brief when using this application. You will be needing a video editor in case you want to edit something on the tutorial you made.
