I’m still working on the Arcanox game trailer.
Recording With Bandicam
For the trailer I’ve recorded a lot of gameplay footage with Bandicam, which is a great screen recording program. Recording with 60 FPS and a reasonable file-size is really important to me, because I’ve only a quite small SSD harddrive. A great and important feature of Bandicam are configurable mouse click effects. Bandicam just works like expected, has lots of configuration options and $39 are an appropritate price.
I’ve also evaluated Fraps, but it offers way less configuration options than Bandicam, supports no click effects, has a really ugly user interface and costs also around $35.
This is some footage, that will not be used in the trailer, because it is a bit to long.

Editing With After Effects
To edit the game trailer I use Adobe After Effects, which is just awesome. This is the first time I use After Effects, but everything is super intuitive. The main reason for this may be, that the user interface is very similar to Flash Professional.
