Yeah, seems pretty much a load. Why would it just so happen that someone had their video cap program running? What, he was making a video of the fireworks? He'd either have to be really bored or just a huge nerd. In fact, it seems like people always seem to have frapps running at just the right time......

It's not like it takes more than 5 seconds to start up fraps...

@ Donjo: Did you know your name means "Give me money" in Korean?Yes. My head is full of useless facts.

Ever heard of Alt + Tab? The 'Windows' key? Not running the game in fullscreen?If you had a shortcut to a game recording program on your desktop, you could minimize the game window, open the recorder and be back in WoW within 5 seconds. As long as an event or sighting lasts longer than a few seconds, it's pretty easy to get it recorded.

If all these were the case, the film would've started after the GM started doing all that crazy stuff, no? It's not like fraps has retrospective record. Just my take on it. Seems staged.

I would certainly get my 'camera' out if I saw a blue-cloaked Gnome floating in mid-air, surrounded by a crowd. On top of that, if GMs have some sort of 'mark' that designates their character as a GM (I'm not sure), then you'd definitely reach for the record button ASAP.

Also the Mac client has video recording built-in, making it ever easier. Whenever I see something that promises to be interesting, I hit my video recording hotkey, which takes but an instant.

@mainmanActually you can't start fraps with the game running and record. It has to be hooked into the driver before the game is launched.
