    Is there any video recording app for Unity like there is in the Unreal engine.
    I am looking for something that would render uncompressed frames because I will be doing the editing and compression in after affects.

    It's not final yet but try https://github.com/Unity-Technologies/GenericFrameRecorder, otherwise try OBS https://obsproject.com/ to do it externally.

    We used to use custom png and raw rgb grabbers, and tried threads piping frames to ffmpeg processes, but in the end OBS was trivial and captured sound as well. You'll have to set it up right for your video card or else the colour can shift or not use full range.

    Best I’ve found is nVidia ShadowPlay - it seems to affect game framerate the least, while recording high quality videos. You just have to enable Desktop Recording, since it doesn’t recognize Unity apps as games.

    Edit: just saw you wanted raw results, sorry. ShadowPlay doesn’t have that option.
