I'm looking into options for recording video game sessions, including multiple different video and audio sources. I'm only at the planning stage of this, but here is basically what I want to set up:
- Have PC set up as recording hub for gameplay sessions either on same PC or on nearby game console
- Capture game footage, both audio and video, either capturing PC game footage or via capture hardware for console games (PCI or USB connection)
- Capture footage of players, probably via webcam attached to PC
- Capture both game and players feeds simultaneously
I'm fairly new to a lot of this stuff, so I'm not particularly sure what I'm looking for here. Can anyone provide some recommendations of software/hardware that would work for what I'm trying to do?
UPDATE: I've just discovered Telestream's Wirecast. It seems to be the sort of software I'm looking for, and I can use it to stream or save it to disk. It also has support for some Blackmagic Intensity capture hardware, which I was already looking at. Has anyone had experience with it or seen a similar, possibly cheaper alternative?
