Fraps (derived from Frames per second) is a universal benchmarking, screen capture, and real-time video capture Windows application that can be used with games using DirectX or OpenGL graphic technology. It is commonly used to determine a computerâ€s performance with a game, as well as record gaming footage. The program is very popular in the making of amateur machinima films. Fraps can take screenshots in various formats: BMP, TGA, JPEG, and PNG. However, only the BMP format is available in the freeware version. In its current form Fraps performs many tasks and can best be described as:
Screen Capture Software

Fraps can capture audio and video up to 2560Ã-1600 with custom frame rates from 10 to 100 frames per second!
Show how many Frames Per Second (FPS) you are getting in a corner of your screen. Perform custom benchmarks and measure the frame rate between any two points. Save the statistics out to disk and use them for your own reviews and applications.
- Testirovanie performance - displays the number of frames per second (FPS), can measure the performance between the two points during the game;
- A tool for capturing images - allows you to capture a single frame in 3D applications (by pressing a hot key), which are automatically stored in the selected folder;
