Okay, I admit I wasn't following along. I got that shadowplay was some kind of recording setup but other than that I seem to have missed it?
It basically runs in the background and always records. If you want to save the clip it records you just hit Alt+F10 and it saves the last 10 minutes of recording. You can change the length in the settings to more or less and also the quality it records in, microphone input etc.
The best part is it doesn't hit your performance like Fraps does because it is all hardware not software.
Nvidia uses a chip on the video card to record so basically 0 performance hit.
I have it running all the time so I can save precious moments like this : http://youtu.be/pPq7pnbIv-Y
I love the Asp. With 6 guns that ship eats everything in front of it. I can't wait to have it all upgraded. I only put some basic guns on it and a better FSD everything else is pretty much stock!
Also, AMD has a tech called GVR that does the same thing Shadowplay does, but doesn't rely on branded tech. It's not quite as optimized for nVidia, so you might as well stick with shadowplay, but doesn't take much of a hit if you have an AMD card.
