The name of the program comes from the abbreviation FPS, which stands for frames per second. Fraps is a Universal-Windows-Application you can use with all games using DirectX and OpenGL technology. The Fraps application is a computer utility designed to count the number of FPS (Frames per Second) in applications running in OpenGL and Direct3D modes. 
There’s a very easy answer to the question of how to use Fraps - it’s free for the functions of benchmarking and frame rate display. Basically, it measures the frame rate between any two points in a video and saves the result on your disk for review and application. Consequently, there is no need to paste in a third-party program (snipping tool) anytime you want to capture your screen. Fraps automatically names and puts a time stamp on every screenshot you take. 
Fraps can record a video while playing a game, making a video call or preparing for a presentation. Fraps can capture video and audio, up to 100 frames and 1152x864 per second, which is pretty cool! This software is in great demand among users; but it’s not a video editor and does not support editing the document. So, you can use it for the sole purpose of creating the video and to capture images on your desktop.
