I know there are many screen capturing programs, but is there any free software that can record my desktop activity at 60 frames per second?

Why do you want to record the actions that take place on your desktop at 60 frames per second when its very unlikely your desktop is even updating that many times to begin with. – Ramhound Mar 12 '12 at 11:37
@Ramhound You can't generalize it.. What If there's FullHD video running as his wallpaper. Its just one case. – Evil Angel Mar 12 '12 at 17:26

Install an industry-grade open source software CamStudio. Go to Options ~> Video Options & set Capture Frames Every option to 16 milliseconds and Playback Rate to 60 frames/second. You'll have to un-check Auto Adjust checkbox for manually editing them.

Cam Studio Video Options

Then, record.

Yea You can. There is a Screen Recorder called Microsoft Expression Encoder 4. Download and install it and open it. Go to the settings button and it has a fps drop menu. Click on 60. It should work.

Good luck! :D :)

I0vetried many screen capture software, the only one I found that is actually capable of recording 60fps full screen video (on my computer) is

Microsoft Expression Encoder 4

Install the software, the basic version it's free, just ignore the screen where it ask for a product key (click 'next').

Then start the "Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture", and set it up to record at 60fps (see image)
