XBox 360 Sniper Elite 3 First Level / Mission

Just playing the first level of Sniper Elite III on the XBox 360

Enjoying so far as love a more slow paced shooter than something like COD which isn't my cup of tea so if you loved Sniper Elite II it more of the same but now set in Africa

Captured using a Hauppage Rocket edited with VideoReDo then re-encoded with VidCoder as the file was over 3GB so shrunk down to 1GB which is easier for me to upload

Hauppauge Rocket External Hard Drive / SSD

If you want to use a SSD within a caddy with the Hauppauge Rocket a OCZ Vertex won't work but a Intel 330 works like a charm :)

Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket vs Roxio Game Capture HD Pro

Yes it's the fight of the century the Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket vs Roxio Game Capture HD Pro :)

Both capture devices were used with the same capture software GamerCap to make it a fair playing field as the Roxio software is crap

I choice forza 4 as it's one of the best looking games on the XBox 360 plus it was easer to capture an identical video and with the help of VideoReDo to edit i had two identical game captures which were then put together with Adobe Prem Pro

Well i've sat and watched the video a few times now and have to say it's an easy draw and the only difference i can see is the Roxio has a slightly richer colour balance where the Hauppauge is more natural

So what one would i buy ?

Well i have both, i first bought the Roxio and used for a few months but the included software will drive you potty "it's a dogs dinner" so gave up and got myself the Hauppauge Rocket which i've been using for the last few weeks which has the added benefits of capturing to a PC or as a standalone device to capture to a flash drive plus it has a mic input with is handy to add commentary to your gaming videos so in the end i would go for the Rocket but there is a "But" and that's where GamerCap Capture Software comes into the game as when used with the Roxio it brings the Roxio back into the game due to how easy it is to use plus it lets you record gamer commentary from a mic plugged into your PC which is then added to the video capture something the included Roxio doesn't do "shame on you Roxio"

So in the end i would buy the Hauppauge Rocket but if funds only allow for the Roxio just make sure you also buy GamerCap software to use with it and you will still be happy

PS I use GamerCap all the time now even with my Hauppauge Rocket as it's such a great bit of software

GamerCap Alternative Console Capture Software

Just testing GamerCap software with my Roxio Game Capture HD Pro as the software which comes with the Roxio is terrible and will go down in history as one of the worst ever bit's of capture software ever written

So the other day i came across GamerCap which has to be the only alternative software which will work with the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro and after testing for the last few hours it's the first time i've ever had a smile on my face when using the Roxio as it the first time i've ever had captures without any video glitches and no dropped frames

It also makes adding your own voice to your game captures as easy as pie as it has the option of recording from your mic plugged into your PC

So if you own a Roxio Game Capture HD Pro or any other game capture device like the Hauppauge Rocket which i've also tested it's well worth the money at about £15 UK money

GamerCap Download

PS if like me you just want to install the driver for the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro so you don't have to install the crap software from Roxio use link below its the driver backup from my PC running Windows 8.1

Tested with XBox 360 and Forza 4
