Actually, I think it'd be better to create another group - freemium.
I have tried multiple recorders. Camtasia Camstudio is freemium, not paid (at least older versions). You can use it for free, but it has limitations (and did not work for me in the end). Bandicam is freemium too, but leaves a watermark, so it's not the best solution sometimes. The one that worked for me though was Icecream video recorder, also a freemium program. A free version limits video length to 5 minutes. OBS did not work at all on my computer due to being heavyweight, and I don't know the other two, so cannot say anything about them.

EDIT: From the looks of it FRAPS is also freemium, with limited length of a video for the free version. And XSplit broadcaster is freemium as well.

I call those "trials" mostly. But Xsplit is only "freemium" on certain streaming aspects. But definitely not necessary to pay for recording your own things nor does it add watermarks or whatever. So I just sticked it to Free category for now.

I could've sworn Fraps was 100% free before but I really should've rechecked that lol.

Hmmm, I like screencast-o-matic. I use the paid version, but the free version is okay, too.

Can we put BlueBerry FlashBack Express 5 on the free list? Sure there is a premium version, but if you already have a video editing software, all you even need is the free version (all premium adds is a built-in video editor and that is it.)

Another free tool you can use for screen recording is gomcam recorder and it’s also got a premium version for extra features and to get rid of the ads in the software

As for me, I prefer Joyoshare Screen Recorder, an easy-to-use yet efficient video recording software with high quality. Yet its free version has stamped watermark on it.

I bought a piece of software a while ago. Movavi Video Suite 16. I think they are on 18 now.
When I went to buy it I was considering the price and decided against it. When I removed the item from the cart and went to navigate away from the page, the site popup a code to save 50%. So I bought it.
It's been pretty good. It has flaws in the video editing part, but it does include a screen recorder feature.
I've used it quite a few times to get things I would normally not be able to.

For Radeon users I recommend built-in ReLive.

I think Camtasia is all the best except it is pricey. As for free video recording software, OBS and Screen-O-Matic shall not be missed. TunesKit Screen Recorder is also nice but has a watermark on it. Online screen recorders like Loom and Screencastify is quite easy to use.

Today I found out that ladybirds\ladybugs are apparently named for the Virgin Mary. They're also known as God's cows in some places.

The sad reaction was not because I want you to credit me. (terms clearly say no need to credit) but because those maps are meant to be used as inspiration or guidence. You are ofcourse alowed to use them however you want :)
