There is not one game recording tool that simply does it all perfectly. Basically, you need a software that can record your gameplays without causing an impact to your performance while you are actually playing the game. Then you need a separate software that has all the functionality built into it to edit those captures into a presentable video for your audience or whatever your reasoning is for creating the game footage.

So basically, you have to use 2 different tools to accomplish your task. I use OBS for recording my game captures because it is very lightweight and between toggling on the programs with hot keys to record and stop recording, there is absolutely no performance difference when I am recording and not recording. Then I take those output videos from OBS and import them into Camtasia for video editing and adding media to make them into a presentable video for YouTube.
