FRAPS - How to capture timelapse
show user profile  mattymoose
I'd like to capture .1 frames per second or something like that in fraps so I can do a modeling timelapse. Is this possible with a video capture, or do I have to do it with screenshots and them comp them into a video after the fact?

If its the latter, is there a freeware program that can do this?

Have you tried it?
It does let you type in FPS or select from a list.
I tried it all went well until I tried to view the video, but that could be WMP fucking up. :(

I put .1 in the FPS but no matter what I do, it seems to play at 30 in media player.
I'm just going to use the "repeat screen cap every x seconds" option and use virtualdub to make a video out of the screens, i think.

On that subject, how the hell do I get a bunch of frames into a video in virtualdub?
Drag and drop is not working (it just loads the 1st frame.) Do they have to be named sequentially?

edit: yes, they do.

Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't this how it's supposed to work?
It captures a shot every 10 seconds and plays it at 30fps, making a timelapse which would seem like a speed up from the original.
10 times faster seems a bit extreme though, 2-3 seconds for a frame would be ok, showing all you did but faster

You are right, I mistyped, what I meant to say is that even if I put .1 in fraps it still looks like it was captured at 30 (i.e. the video doesn't look sped up). I might be doing it wrong it whatever but either way it doesn't do what I want it to.

However Virtualdub is a serviceable solution. Although Capturing directly to video would be more convenient.
