There is now a new website called 3Dizzy that is dedicated to providing stereoscopic 3D gameplay videos that can give you an idea on how well a game looks and performs in stereo 3D mode. Currently the website has stereoscopic 3D gaming videos recorded from the following games: Lost Planet 2: Benchmark, Street Fighter 4, Burnout Paradise, Avatar: The Game, Dark Void, Heroes of Might & Magic V – Tribes of the East, Metro 2033, Prince of Persia, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum. The stereo 3D gaming videos are available both in YouTube 3D as well as in a downloadable format with higher quality, so you can take a look at the videos online and then decide to download them or not. The 3D videos are recorded with FRAPS and are available in Side by Side format. Also I want to remind you that you can also record your own 3D gameplay videos with the help of FRAPS and you are more than welcome to share them here in the Forum.

As you probably know in the last few versions the program FRAPS has support for recording stereoscopic 3D videos for the owners of systems equipped with 3D Vision. But with the stereo 3D mode enabled when you hit the record key you can only record videos in stereoscopic 3D mode, if you want to record a 2D movie you need to disable the 3D Vision and then record again. This is not very convenient as because of that you might miss some important moment that you needed to record in the game while playing in S3D mode, but you actually don’t need the video to be in 3D mode. So in version 3.2.0 of FRAPS you can record 2D videos even while playing the game in stereo 3D mode, just for your convenience. Apart from that in the new version there is also an added loop recording function with 30 second buffer and some major optimizations were done for recording videos from DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 games.
