    Hi, I have a runner and every time I try to record with any screengrabber like OBS, Screenflick or any other - I get laggy non-smooth and non fluent motion which is very annoying to watch. I set recording to 60 fps but it doesn't help also.. I'm on MacOSX, 32 GB ram..

    Can you please recommend some other software or may be it's just me doing something stupid? Any ideas?

    Run on device (intsall with XCode) and record the screen through QuickTime.
    Otherwise try to use oCam, it's for PC, not sure about Mac.

    Are you running on device or on emulator? Emulator is laggy indeed but once installed on device through xCode it runs normally in my case.

    Install the game on your device and open QuickTime Player > New Movie Recording and select your device.
    Record and start the game. It should capture it the same FPS as your device.

    But thats what Im doing - I'm capturing from device (iphone) using QT - laggy as fuck! The only thing that gives NOT SO MANY lags is - Screenflick - but it just a bit better - still lags once in a second or two. Have no idea what to do ..

    Is it lagging on your phone when not connected to the computer?
    Maybe your Mac/PC laggs?

    Yes it's lagging a bit on a device also even disconnected from my mac, but not as much as QT shows it. May be I'll have to try it on PC also..

    Don't use emulator, install it on your device. Emulator is crap.

    So try screengrabs with as much frames per seconds as possible, with oCam you have Game Recording Mode with 60 fps but in my case recording from device via QuickTime on Mac reached best results.

    If it's lagging on your device, you probably have an issue with your BBDoc.

    Maybe your assets are too big?
    Or you haven't set a back deletion.
    Try clicking on your worlds node in the mind map and adding a back deletion of 500, 500.

    You never know.
