Creating a Frame Capture File
Creating frame capture files using the Intel® GPA System Analyzer HUD keyboard shortcut combination is useful for capturing frames while running the application in full-screen mode. You can analyze those files with the Intel® GPA Frame Analyzer tool.
To create frame capture files in a full-screen game:
Run the Intel® GPA Monitor.
Launch the graphics application as described in Launching an Application.
Use the keyboard shortcut to switch between HUD modes. By default the keyboard-shortcut combination is Ctrl+F1.
Use the keyboard shortcut to capture frames. By default, the capture keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+C. For information on how to assign a different capture keyboard shortcut, refer to Customizing the Keyboard-shortcut Assignments.
When you capture a frame, the Intel® GPA System Analyzer HUD displays the message providing information on the file name or on possible errors (if any):
All captured frames are saved with the
.gpa_frame extension and reside in the user’s home directory:
C:Users%USERNAME%DocumentsGPA_2012_R1. – the path under Microsoft Windows Vista* OS and Microsoft Windows* 7 OS
When capturing a frame, all applied overrides are turned off.
