Excellent product

Nothing else to add beyond the other opinions here, it does what it says on the tin. Could just be me though but I had to dig around to find where the Avi actually ended up - I don't know if there was documentation or whatnot to let the user know this location?

perfect if you can't afford bandicam

Does everything bandicam does pretty much. It's a must-have! :D

Functional and easy to use. Recommended.

This is a fantastic little tool that permits you to record any of your GM games as you play. Simply import the project into the game, add the recorder instance and press F1. Easy, and gives great results
