Converting RF-Recordings to video files?

Does anyone know of an app or program that will convert Real Flight Recording files to MP4 or YouTube format?

Do not think there is such a program.
Using a screen recording program is the common method .

Fraps and ShadowPlay are the two I am aware of.

In my experience:
Fraps splits long recordings into multiple files, and records as AVI, so the files have to be merged and converted to make a MP4 file.
ShadowPlay was superior (one file regardless of length, recorded direct to MP4). Sadly did one of their updates several months ago, and now it will not record.

Another nice thing about recording with a separate program is all the displayed fields such as current, airspeed, etc are retained.

There are probably other recording programs available, but those are the two I am aware of.

How to make a video of RealFlight with Windows 10

I found this a while back searching Google : RealFlight Make Recording.

I haven't tried it personally.
If this works for you, let us know what you think of it.

RealFlight Recording

Tried the method described on YouTube using Xbox. It worked fine but a 3 minute recording was a huge MP4 file, too large to email.

You could convert or resize your file using something free. I use Any Video Converter all the time for such purposes.
