Method 1: Using A Capture Card to Record 3DS Gameplay
Step 1: Buy a Nitendo 3DS Capture Card
First of all you need to buy a Nitendo 3DS capture card and install it directly to gaming console. This facility is currently available in Germany, USA and Japan only; either you can place your order online to get it at your place or simply send your console to company and it will come back with modification. The professionals will just create an additional Mini USB port on backside of Nintendo 3DS.
Now you have to install your Nintendo 3DS viewer software. The capture card will come along with your software and once console gets connected to PC with the help of Mini USB port then Live streaming becomes possible.
Step 3: Open the Boardcast Software
As soon as your software gets installed then simply broadcast it to start your game recording process. Professionals prefer to use Open Broadcaster Software for this task whereas another popular solution is XSplit Broadcaster.
Once your broadcasting software is installed then add the source that can record all details from your specified window on PC. You need to launch the Nintendo 3DS viewer software to start recording or streaming. If you are going to use OBS software then you have to add it into Window Capture source and then select previews stream after opening Nintendo 3DS viewer from drop down menu.
Method 2: Recording 3DS Gameplay Without a capture card
If you want to record your 3ds gameplay without capture card then you will need a smart phone and a clamp to hold it during recording process. Then start following these steps:
Step 1: Adjust your mobile phone on the clamp and focus it perfectly on your 3DS gameplay.
Step 2: Initiate the recording process on your mobile phone, check for resolution and adjust viewing angle to cover full screen.
Step 3: Now start playing your game and the smart phone screen will record video as well as audio for you.
This process is very simple but users need to make proper adjustments for placement of mobile phone on clamp. The resolution offered by mobile camera must be equally high so that you can obtain good results.
After recording the gameplay, you can share it with friends online or save for later watching. But to make the recorded gameplay more attractive or more descriptive, you can add some cool effects or titles and text to it.
