    Screenshots

    I've been using Fraps for taking screenshots for years, but lately it's been recording nothing but black screens.

    Looks like I'll have to replace it.

    Any recommendations?

    Try using the 'Print Screen' key, and the freeware 'Gimp' program.
    After the program loads click on 'edit', then chose 'paste'.
    You will then see the screenshot.
    To save it, you will have to click 'export as', and name a folder, file name, format.
    It may sound quite complicated, but the easiest solution that I use.

    Why not just use the good old "V" key, or whatever you wish to change it to?

    In Options->Application, you can also set which file format you wish the screenshot to be saved in, includes bmp, jpg, png and tiff. Screenshots are saved in your pictures folder under \Prepar3D v4 Files.

    I have Fraps, but don't use it. I use "V". Then I use Microsoft "Photos" to view, and then edit. Works perfectly. NC

    FRAPS has been working for me but I tend to use the 'V' key unless I'm recording.
    Usually prefer to save as a .PNG and do my post processing (if any) in Corel PSP 2019 or ACDSee Photo Studio 2019 (another Corel app).
    I have them as part of my photography kit so I just use them.
    Never had any problem with FRAPS over a very long time.

    Same here, V also works in FSX but in P3D you can specify the format it saves in in the options, then you the editor of your choice to crop and edit. I use photoshop elements, but Gimp works well and gimp is free, but sometimes hard to figure out.
