I don't see how a screen recorder running at all times, doesn't suck the life out of a low powered computer and take away from the overall performance of all others.
Especially when rendering a video or doing some other computer intensive work.
Even a low quality recording will have an impact because it's always running.
I have 16GB of RAM and its not enough,I don't want to share any with this recording device either.
If you implement such a thing. Make sure we can disable it. Because I don't want it sucking the life out of my other programs. Thanks but no thanks.
I'll record my screen when I think it's necessary.
Here's the point I've been trying to get across.
I even did some testing earlier today.
To see how much of a resource hog SnagIt would be when capturing video on a 2560 x 1440 monitor at it's lowest quality setting.
However, when SnagIt was set to capture high quality video.The results were almost identical.So, it's almost insignificant which setting is used,none the less. I was trying to make this a computer friendly test.
I didn't scale it down to a blurry 1920 x 1080 resolution automatically.
With SnagIt open and running at Idol it consumes "0%" of my CPU and "0%" of GPU.
In it's current configuration,
with the Screen Recorder running it consumes "15%" of my CPU on average and "30%" of my GPU.
My computer is 4 years old. My CPU is still a high quality processor compared to what's available today.
My GPU is a high end card but position toward the lower end of the spectrum.
Dell Computer SPECS.
4th Generation Intel Core i7-4770 processor (8M Cache, up to 3.9 GHz)
16GB RAM Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz - 4 DIMMs EA - -
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 1.5GB GDDR5 EA - - Supporting 4 Displays
So ask yourself this. Are you willing to sacrifice that much computing power"At All Times!" across the board.
I don't see this equates to practical or cost efficient, hobbling computers throughout an entire companies workforce.
On the off chance someone will record a error from time to time?
Just think what this would do to a lower powered computer with integrated graphics. The loss of CPU resources would certainly climb higher.
