May 17, 2017 Version: 2.5.0 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

This capture tool is very good and comparable with others like DXTORY and FRAPS.

The big problem is that we cannot work with the file in raw mode (No MPC, VLC, DAUM, VIRTUALDUB...). There is no way to edit, only if you convert to MP4 (slooooow encode)using self-paramenters, which is not good.

I hope that the company make DS filters.
