    Hello there Doc! Very useful tut here! I would really like however to have the windows version covered as well. I am new to the whole thing here, and my pc/equipment is limited/bad. After researching, playing with OBS,spout and other tingz, i ended up recording my resolume livejam with fraps. I cant say I loved the outcome, but i had what i wanted, a synced audiovisual preview to show to my client. Any other software you could recommend? Or maybe techniques? Or even better, ways to lose less quality when converting from the raw fraps record to an actual web-friendly size??? I ended up with a 5.3gb file, shrinked to 680mb. But quality was (more than) slightly chopped. Please gimme yo laz0r knowledge! peace x

      Hey there, you can try to use Resolume’s built in recorder or perhaps you can look into a video capture device such as the Elgato and record the output of your computer to another source. I am not sure, but on the Mac if you use Quicktime Player there’s a recording feature as well. Hopefully that steers you in the right direction. Thanks for the comment!
