1. NCH Software makes vid cap software called Debut http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/index.html I've also used Fraps.

in a nutshell:
8 bit colourspace = 16.1 million colours (Truecolor)
10 bit colourspace = over 1 billion colours
I know that. So you were just wrong with the calculations. Ok then.

3. +1 to MSI Afterburner or whichever derivative of Riva Tuner. It's free and works, don't know how good it is if you wanna do something 'professional'.

what are you talking about? 8 bit colourspace = 24bit colour

Well, you said:
8 * 1920 * 1080 * 60 = 995328000 bits
as it is 8Bit per colour, and since a pixel consists of three colours, its 24 bits per pixel - so it's actually 24 * 1920 * 1080 * 60

hm, you're right. I hate maths.... that's the part I always end up "debugging" in my code.

You acted a bit condescending about it, instead of looking at your post again to see if you maybe had made a mistake. And then it turned out you made the mistake.

EDIT: Ok this is probably harsher than I intended, I'm sorry. But seriously, this isn't the first time I call you out on something. Please check your stuff if you're trying to educate people, because being wrong does a lot of harm to people trying to learn.
