    my Tank Ownage Video!

    Warfare! Tank Pwnage!

    ok, my video is at 2 locations...my Mettle Works blog files ( watch that one, it is better quality )
    and also at You Tube ( we all know how bad You Tube flash vids are)

    music: Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society LIVE "Born To Booze"

    Tank Ownage @ my Mettle Works blog ( better quality, WMV format)
    http://mettle-works.diinoweb.com/fil...ankOwnage1.wmv

    and the link at You Tube ( lesser quality, flash video format)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2cRyDfe_88

    how did i capture this ?

    Video & Sound out of PC to my RCA DVD Recorder.
    then ported back into the PC for editing using DVD Xpress DX2 into Divx AVI format
    then editied using Premiere Elements and output into WMV format.
    uploading to you tube converts it into flash video.

    have fun!

        It's nice to see your enthusiastic about UT3. But what you did was very mediocre, I didn't see any "outlandish" kills or anything. But, well, I mean, enthusiasm is a start at least.

          Why did you use an external recorder? I thought UT3 recorded demos. Wouldn't it be easier and look better to record a demo and then play it back and use something like fraps to capture it?

            wow! over 100 views in 8 hours...
            and i dont know how many hits i get from my blog theres no way to track it.

            my other video i did for Tachyon The Fringe "Posidon Adventure"
            has 90 views and has been up for 4 weeks.

            the response is astounding.

            i have another video im working on and when its ready ill post it here as well.

            have fun !!

              FACESTOMPER:
              umm i use an external recorder so i can mix the music that plays
              as i play the game.

              it adds to the adrenaline rush.
              i havent tried to make a proprietary UT3 demo yet...so....

              i just wish you tube had better quality.
              limiting me to 100 megs really hurts in the quality dept.
              esp if the vid is long.
              it means more compression and quality loss .

              my best exp quality wise is Fraps, but it takes a hit to the system...
              i can host wmv format from my blog and the quality there is very good.

              this method uses no resources and i have a dvd when im done.
              i can watch it on TV or a friends house or post it on the web.

              theres pros and cons, and im willling to listen to anyone who might have an idea or method they use.

                AND AS FAR AS MY GAME PLAYING ABILITY....
                making the video is about having fun, not being the best.
                when you max out your skills and can kill anything anywhere the game starts to lose its challenge.

                its about building action with the music.
                and believe it or not im surprised i hit that manta that came at me around the corner.
                had i missed him, it would have been all over.

                  Im not sure what the best way to do it in this game, but in other games it was like this:

                  -Use in-game demo recording.
                  -Play back the demo with frame rate capped at 30fps (if you can, in the game editor so you can use diferent view angles etc).
                  -Use fraps to record your demo.
                  -Edit the fraps video in an editor so you can put together different scenes and layer music on top(windows movie maker is the easy way, you can get fancy with other more exotic editors).
                  -compress (windows movie maker can do this or use something else)
                  -upload to a site

                  Here are a couple of examples of really well done ut 2k4 movies imo:

                    Yeah, I dont get why people rag on other's game play in the movies they make. I mean, you are suppose to play video games FOR FUN, so any movie you make of you playing a video game should be made FOR FUN too.

                    User made movies are awesome and do a lot to add to the community. The more the better. Picking apart someone's skills in a non constructive way just discourages people from making movies. Its a hell of a lot harder to make a movie then it looks too.

                    Anyways, I look forward to watching more UT3 movies from you in the future

                        hey, thanks Facestomper some good pointers there.

                        I use Premiere Elements for most of my down n dirty videos.
                        it works best at rendering to Wmv format and also to m2v files for making DVD.
                        wanna see more of my stuff? go here
                        theres a bit more than just gaming videos, but most of my stuff is there.
                        and if you like to ROCK, youll be right at home...

                            Thanks Brad...glad you enjoyed it.

                            Facestomper...those vids you posted to me are freakin PHENOMENAL.
                            those guys are doing alot more than drag n drop into the timeline, and click "render"
                            which is pretty much the way i do mine. but one has to learn by doing...and seeing what others do and learning from their magic ... those are magical videos
                            so much layered stufff happening and i seee some animation techniques too...
                            way outside my class...and the video quality....wow...ok time to try out Fraps again.


                            lol and DarkPulse posted to my vid at you tube
                            and pointed out all my glaring errors in gameplay.
                            thanks bro, i dont mind a constructive review either of gameplay or video technique.
                            both are fine to me.

                              IMO a video should contain something spectacular. This one did not. Sorry.
