You can use GeForce Experience for much more than recording.
  1. Download the latest version of GeForce Experience, and once you install it, it will automatically run.
  2. Click on the settings cog icon left of your user name, in the upper-right corner.
  3. Enable the in-game overlay by clicking on the grey button.
  4. Once the icon turns green, click on the “Settings” right underneath. You'll now be able to change elemental options like keyboard shortcuts or the default folder where your videos will be stored. 
  5. Once you set these things up, click on the "Video Capture" tab. 

These aren't the settings for professionals, but they are adequate for casual recording.

Now, GeForce Experience doesn't offer any nerd settings, but video quality, resolution, and frame rate options will do the trick. As soon as you set everything to your preference, you'll be able to record Rust by pressing the previously set keyboard shortcut or clicking the "Record" button in the overlay. If you haven't changed the default folder, the videos will be stored in C:\Users\<Username>\Videos.

Method #2: Radeon ReLive

If you have AMD GPU, this is how you can record Rust with the Radeon ReLive:

Make sure to enable ReLive first.

  3. Finally, tick the ReLive button to enable this option.

So choose the settings according to your PC's power and preference, and once you're ready to record Rust gameplay videos (or clips), press the Ctrl + Shift + R (by default). In addition, Radeon ReLive videos are stored in C:\Users\<Username>\Videos\Radeon ReLive.

  2. Once you're on the main screen of OBS, select the + icon under the "Sources."
  3. Choose the "Game Capture" and write any name you want or leave it like that.
