Are you confused about where your Nvidea highlights get saved?
Do you want to find your favorite Fortnite clips?
And watch them back to see exactly what happened?
Here’s what you need to do:
- Open your GeForce Experience App. If you don’t have already have this installed then you can download it from the official Nvidia site
- Go to your settings by clicking the cog in the top right-hand side of your screen
- From settings select in-game overlay (in the 3rd section) and then go to settings again
- Click recordings and from here you will see where your videos are being saved. For example: C:\Users\kr4m\Videos
This is the file path. And, when you there, you will find all the Fortnite highlights you have saved.
Now, you can watch your replays back.
Listen, watching your own gameplay is one of the best ways to get good at Fortnite. Because you can see what you did right. And what you did wrong and how you can improve.
When you play Fortnite it’s hard to know what is happening because things happen so fast. But when you watch a reply, you can slow it down and notice all the things you wouldn’t see.
For example, imagine you are taking shots at an enemy… and you miss all your shots.
You could blame this on the game. Or bad luck (like a lot of players do). Because Fortnite uses a bloom based aiming system, so you are never 100% accurate.
However, when you watch the replay back, you can see if it was your aim being bad. And if this is happening a lot then could be a weak point and you might want to train your aim using Kovaak’s FPS Aim Trainer.
How to set up Fortnite Nvidia Highlights
Go to your GeForce Experience App and open the settings.
Next, go to the in-game overlay settings and select “Highlights”.
Now enable “Capture” at the top. This lets Fortnite automatically capture screenshots and video recordings using ShadowPlay.
From here you can see where your files are stored.
And set a maximum disk space.
The default maximum disk space is 5GB. But I recommend you set this higher. I have it set to 30GB so I’m sure there’s enough space to record everything.
If you are using an SSD with a low SSD then you can, of course, set the maximum disk space lower.
How to set up when Fortnite highlights will record
You can enable your Nvidia graphics card to automatically capture your best moments in Fortnite.
Here is what you can record:
- Double Eliminations
- Triple Eliminations
- Multi Eliminations
- Victory Royales
To do this, open Fortnite and press Alt+Z.
Then, go to your settings and select “Highlights”.
From here you can toggle things on/off as you wish.
I have mine set up to record all the events. That way I know I will never miss a thing.
The Nvidia GeForce Experience lets you capture Fortnite highlights.
This is especially useful if you are a content creator (like me) and don’t want to record the entire game because it can use a lot of precious disk space.
With it, you can also save your best (or worst) moments. Then review them at a time that’s convenient for you.
Hopefully, when you watch your content back, you will realize things about your gameplay and learn how you can get better.
