D3DGear Game Capture SDK
The SDK RFC function is highly optimized and highly efficient. The raw video and audio frames are delivered to the caller process in a very efficient way that will not impact game or application at all.
The SDK provides APIs to set target capture process, call back function, start capture and stop capture etc.
D3DGear Game Capture SDK supports to capture audio from a single game or application process instead of system audio play back device, which mixes all audio play back sources from entire system. This allows to separate the audio of targeting game or application process from other audio sources, the recorded audio will only has the sound play backed from the targeting game or application process.
