One of the things that most users of Action! appreciate about it is how easy it is on their hardware and its excellent performance. The secret behind this functionality is FICV (Fast Intra Compression Video Standard) – a proprietary video codec from Mirillis that’s ultra-fast and optimized for multicores. This video codec, coupled with optimized software engines, offers peak performance for HD video recording in real-time. Furthermore, Action! also takes advantage of other video capture technologies like AMD APP, NVIDIA NVENC, and Intel Quick Sync to record quality videos. It’s compatible with any Windows OS from Windows Vista to Windows 10. It utilizes significantly small CPU and GPU resources; however, the higher your quality needs, the higher the resource needs. Be that as it may, compared to other screen recording software, the hardware resources Action! will consume when on duty are considerably small.
