How do you take screen shots of cut scenes while in game..and where do they show up on your computer? I've used the print screen button before..but I can't find a folder marked screen shots any where on my computer.

The in-game screenshot function does not always work during cutscenes so there's no guarantee of getting the shot you want.

The screenshot folder is in your My Documents folder.

So would be very happy if you could tell me about Fraps

Print screen then just do a search on your computer. It's in the swtor files, although cant remember off the top of my head right now.

I looked in the My Documents Folder...there is nothing there for Swtor.

When the game started (Dec'11) I had no problems at all capturing screenshots from cut scenes.
Nowadays I get not a single of that kind of screenshots.
In game screenshots work flawless though.

Seems that some update brought some bugs with it...

I try to take screenshots of every WZ I'm in but it rarely works for more than one per session. Don't know what the problem is exactly. Could it be that I've minimized the application at some point? I usually do that while checking something on the web or changing music.

What I had to do was make a folder for Swtor (In My Documents) then inside it I had to make another one for Screenshots and it works for me getting Screenshots by hit the "Print Screen" butten but it doesnt work at all for cut scenes...

A little side note if you hit Alt+Z it will turn your hud off to get a better screenshot
