Can someone record good video's and post youtube?

Post by Stiler »

Dang thread title wouldn't let me post it all :p.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has the means to record some good Severance Videos (showing off the combat and such mainly) and then can post them on youtube or google video?

The thing is that I use Severance a lot when I discuss melee combat engines for other games, but it's hard to show people just how awesome it is in severance less they play it for themselves, however some good videos to throw out there would be extremely helpful.

I'd love to see the fans here that are able to record some just toss up some excellent videos showing off the combat of Severance. Everything from how blocking/dodgin works and is important in the game to how cool the dismemberment and diverse the moves and such are.

Have you seen the ones on Big Truck's site? There are some good clips of me getting killed in MP.[|)]

I think he did them with Fraps but not sure exactly how he commpressed them.

If you have video output in graphics card then you can record them direct to VHS and edit them into a movie.[:p]

you can make animated .gifs if you keep the images very small and not too many frames.

Sen'or Stiler, please look at Bigtruck's web page in multiplayer part. There you can find some videoclips and slide shows. Slide show can have 5-10-20 animated pictures per slide frame. You could make such a show on your own, if you would like to. I can help with a slide show manual.
Also there is a possibility to make a full quality demo movies, like
it makes Serious Sam for example. But to see them you need a Blade
itself. And right now it is not available.
Also I have written a simple screen shot grabber for Blade. It takes
a sequence of screen copies during a period with a determined frame rate. Do not know how useful is it, but it looks very simple. Script is

I have a few I recorded myself using fraps (but limited to 30seconds) but I'm not sure of a good way to convert them so they are small and such (need to learn virtualdub I guess :p)

I'm looking for videos that are a bit cinematic in quality, showing off mainly things like dodging/blocking and attacking , espically with great finishes with dismemberment :D.

Will check out bigtrucks site and look for some.

Yea, I checked out your site, some nice videos there. Youtube would be easier to show people though, cause there's no codec's, etc needed to watch different videos. (Lot of people don't like/have real player installed. Any chance you could throw up some of your mp video's onto youtube or such?

I personally don't like Youtube because you can't keep the videos after you download them.

Here's some I've made over time:
http://www.crawspace.com/ss/videos/BigBlade.wmv 69MB

http://www.crawspace.com/ss/videos/blade01.wmv 10MB

http://www.crawspace.com/ss/videos/blade2.wmv 28MB

http://www.crawspace.com/ss/videos/bod_tel_halaf.wmv 57MB (includes kickass music)

http://www.crawspace.com/ss/videos/bodgladiator.wmv 24MB

Is there a way to record videos with Windows98? I just went to fraps and it says it only works on 2000 and above.
