PlayClaw 3.0 press release

Playclaw v.3.0 Captures Video without Lags, Now in 64-bit Games

Popular software for making machinima videos allows gamers to record amazing movies in 64-bit games and change capture settings without having to step out of the game.

TAMBOV, Russia – January 18, 2012 – Sytexis Software today announces Playclaw 3.0, a new version of the popular video capture software for DirectX and OpenGL games. The new release puts more power into the hands of gamers with support for 64-bit games and in-game overlay that lets users change capture settings while in game, rather than press Alt-Tab to quit the game and do the same in Windows.

“We do our best to create a tool that offers an incredible quality of video capture in games and powerful features for benchmarking a computer. Taking full advantage of multi-core processors and codecs, created especially for capturing games, our software lets you record virtual victories with minimal loss of frames and little impact on game performance. Also Playclaw makes it easier than ever to benchmark and configure your computer’s performance with a set of dedicated tests”, said Edward Kozadaev, author of Playclaw.

The latest update of Playclaw, available in its online store starting today, opens even more opportunities for players to capture video and screenshots in games. Following the requests of users and trends of the game market, the developers updated the program with support for 64-bit games, allowing players to capture the hottest moments of the game play on video and screenshots in memory intensive games

Also new version provides an overlay atop the game that allows users to change capture settings without having to quit the game. The overlay is very handy as gamers can see the results of their changes instantly. In earlier versions of Playclaw the player had to use Alt-Tab to quit the game, change settings and come back to proceed.

Other changes in Playclaw 3.0 include an ability to set custom font, size, shadow and color for any overlay (FPS counter, GPU/CPU overlay). Also it is possible to change the position of an overlay while in game.

Next updates will introduce more unique features for video capture.
